Alcohol Fees

What are the fees associated with shipping alcohol?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for the safety and security of alcoholic beverages and oversees transport of these items. The U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) assures compliance with Federal alcohol permitting, labeling, and marketing requirements to protect consumers.
