INSTRUCTIONS


First handlers are required to file the First Handler Report monthly. The American Pecan Promotion Board (APPB) must receive the original of the report, with signature, and full remittance by 10th day of the month following the month in which it is due. A late payment charge will be imposed on any handler who fails to remit the total amount due by 10th day following the month that it is due. The individual completing this report will provide their name and contact information in Part A; note producer’s name and address, amount received and calculate assessment due in Part B; note organic producer’s name and address, amount received and the organic exemption certification number in Part C and sign the certification statement at the bottom of this form. The staff of the American Pecan Promotion Board holds all reports in strict confidence.


First Handler Definition: The definition of First Handler is stated in Section 1223.7 of the Pecan Promotion, Research and Information Order (Part 1223) as follows:


First Handler means any person who receives, shells, cracks, accumulates, warehouses, roasts, packs, sells, consigns, transports, exports, or ships (except as a common contract carrier of pecans owned by another person), or in any other way puts inshell or shelled pecans in the stream of commerce. The term first handler includes a producer who handles or markets pecans of the producer’s own production.”


Responsibility for Assessment Collection: As stated in Section 1223.52 (b) of the Pecan Promotion, Research, and Information Order (Part 1223),

The collection of assessments on pecans produced in the United States, will be the responsibility of the first handler receiving the pecans from producers. In the case of the producer acting as its own first handler, the producer will be required to collect and remit its individual assessments.”


Please note that the failure of a handler to collect an assessment from the producer does not release the handler from the responsibility of paying the assessment.


Assessment Exemption: Also note that any producer producing less than 50,000 pounds of inshell pecans (25,000 pounds of shelled pecans) on average for the last four years may apply to the APPB for exemption from assessment.


Organic Assessment Exemption: Also note that any producer producing organic pecans may apply annually to the APPB for exemption from assessment on their organic production.


Submission of Reports and Payments: Reports and payments are to be sent to the Pecan Board at the following address:

APPB, Street, City, STATE Zip


Late Payment Fees

As noted in Section 1223.52, Item D of the Order, “A late payment charge shall be imposed on any handler who fails to remit to the APPB the total amount for which any such handler is liable on or before the due date established by the APPB. In addition to the late payment charge, an interest charge shall be imposed on the outstanding amount for which the handler is liable”.
