New York Excise Tax form MT-40 Updated to Reflect New Rates

The New York State Department of Tax and Finance issued a notice on June 18, 2009 informing wine distributors and wineries with direct-to-consumer shipping permits not to file the Monthly Excise Tax Return form MT-40 with a 3/06 revision date for May 2009. The form with the 3/06 revision date has the incorrect tax rates and was inadvertently sent to licensees by the Department. The form with the current tax rates is MT-40 (5/09).  Form MT-40 (5/09) is also available on the New York State Shipping Laws page of the Wine Institute website under Reporting Forms.
