DOR Releases Spirit Taxes Report

May 1, 2013

Updated monthly, DOR releases a report on forecasted and actual tax collection of Washington’s spirit taxes.  Spirit Tax Report, DOR.  The report contains information related to the following –

  • Spirits tax collections are the actual dollars collected during the collection period, which is the 11th of the month through the 10th of the following month.  These collections are for both types of spirits taxes listed above.
  • Spirits sales activity – Sales to consumers through spirits retailers are the actual sales that occurred within a particular month to consumers.  Please note that retailers report sales for one month in the following month.  For example, a retailer would typically remit taxes in November for sales that took place in October.  This report shows sales activity in the month the sales actually happened.
  • Spirits sales activity – Sales to on-premise licensees are the actual sales that occurred within a particular month to on-premise licensees.  As noted above, distributors making sales to on-premise licensees report sales for one month in the following month.
