Wineries must have a valid direct shipping permit in order to ship to consumers in Iowa. The annual permit fee is $25. Additionally, direct shippers must post a $5000 bond, remit excise tax and submit direct shipment reports.
Beginning January 1, 2019, Iowa requires remote sellers, including out-of-state wineries, to collect Iowa state sales tax and applicable local option sales tax on sales shipped to consumers in Iowa, if they have $100,000 or more in gross revenue from Iowa sales during a calendar year. Effective July 1, 2019, the 200 or more separate sales transactions threshold for remote sellers is eliminated.
- Permit applications must be submitted via Iowa’s elicensing website.
- Effective July 1, 2015, direct shipping reports are to be filed semi-annually instead of monthly. The semiannual reporting periods are based on the calendar year, rather than the dates (June 10 and Dec. 10) referenced in HB 638.
- All containers of wine shipped directly to a resident of this state shall be conspicuously labeled with the words CONTAINS ALCOHOL: SIGNATURE OF PERSON AGE 21 OR OLDER REQUIRED FOR DELIVERY or shall be conspicuously labeled with alternative preapproved wording.
