Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB)

    OMB Number: 1513-0025.
    Type of Review: Extension without change of a currently approved 
collection.
    Title: Notice of Release of Tobacco Products, Cigarette Papers, or 
Cigarette Tubes.
    Form: TTB F 5200.11.
    Abstract: The form TTB F 5200.11 is used by a manufacturer of 
tobacco products or an export warehouse to obtain the release of 
tobacco products and cigarette papers and tubes from Customs custody, 
without payment of tax, under internal revenue bond. Such products may

[[Page 23405]]

exported and returned to the original manufacturer or to an export 
warehouse authorized by that manufacturer. The form is used by TTB to 
ensure compliance with laws and regulations at the time of these 
transactions and for post audit examinations.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit organizations.
    Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 536.

    OMB Number: 1513-0058.
    Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection.
    Title: Usual and Customary Business Records Maintained by Brewers 
(TTB REC 5130/1).
    Abstract: The Internal Revenue Code of 1986 requires brewers to 
keep records, in such form and containing such information as 
prescribed by regulation and as necessary for protection of the 
revenue. The TTB regulations set forth the records that brewers must 
keep regarding their operations. TTB audits brewers' records to verify 
production of beer and cereal beverage and to verify the quantity of 
beer removed subject to tax and removed without payment of tax. TTB 
believes that these records would be normally kept in the course of 
doing business.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit organizations.
    Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 1.

    OMB Number: 1513-0110.
    Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection.
    Title: Recordkeeping for Tobacco Products Removed in Bond from a 
Manufacturer's Premises for Experimental Purposes--27 CFR 40.232(e).
    Abstract: The Internal Revenue Code provides that manufacturers of 
tobacco products may remove tobacco products without payment of Federal 
excise tax for experimental purposes, in such quantities and in such 
manner as prescribed by regulation. The TTB regulations set forth the 
standards for such removals and the prescribed records are used by TTB 
to ensure that the products meet the standards for experimental 
purposes and that the removals are in compliance with the IRC and TTB 
regulations.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit organizations.
    Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 1.

    OMB Number: 1513-0132.
    Type of Review: Extension without change of a currently approved 
collection.
    Title: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback 
on Agency Service Delivery.
    Abstract: The information collection activity will garner 
qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely 
manner, in accordance with the Administration's commitment to improving 
service delivery. By qualitative feedback we mean information that 
provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but are not 
statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be 
generalized to the population of study. This feedback will provide 
insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences and 
expectations, provide an early warning of issues with service, or focus 
attention on areas where communication, training or changes in 
operations might improve delivery of products or services. These 
collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable 
communications between the Agency and its customers and stakeholders. 
It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement 
of program management.
    Feedback collected under this generic clearance will provide useful 
information, but it will not yield data that can be generalized to the 
overall population. This type of generic clearance for qualitative 
information will not be used for quantitative information collections 
that are designed to yield reliably actionable results, such as 
monitoring trends over time or documenting program performance. Such 
data uses require more rigorous designs that address: the target 
population to which generalizations will be made, the sampling frame, 
the sample design (including stratification and clustering), the 
precision requirements or power calculations that justify the proposed 
sample size, the expected response rate, methods for assessing 
potential non-response bias, the protocols for data collection, and any 
testing procedures that were or will be undertaken prior fielding the 
study. Depending on the degree of influence the results are likely to 
have, such collections may still be eligible for submission for other 
generic mechanisms that are designed to yield quantitative results.
    Average Expected Annual Number of Activities: 10.
    Number of Respondents: 10,000.
    Frequency of Response: Once per request.
    Average Minutes Per Response: 60.
    Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 10,000.
