New Kansas DTC Legislation Update; CA Wineries Must File Report & Pay Tax by June 15

On May 19, 2021, Governor Kelly signed legislation (HB 2137) to change the Out-of-State Special Order Shipping Gallonage Tax and Sales Report from an annual to a quarterly report. The law also established new licensure and monthly reporting requirements for fulfillment houses that handle logistics, including warehousing, packaging, order fulfillment or shipping services on behalf of a winery that holds a special order shipping license. Read more about the new requirements for fulfillment houses. The Fulfillment House License Application is available in the ABC Liquor Licensing Portal and applicants are advised to start the application process immediately. Please note, California wineries that hold Special Order Shipper licenses should electronically file their sales report and pay their gallonage tax for the first quarter of 2021 by June 15. Future gallonage tax reports and payments need to be submitted electronically by the 15th of the month following the end of each calendar quarter, starting with the second quarter that needs to be filed by July 15.
