Conditions Under Which Extensions of Time for Payment May Be
Granted Under Section 6161 of Title 26 United States Code

To receive consideration, your application must be filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau on or before the date payment is due.
The application will be considered timely if postmarked on or before the due date.
1. Undue Hardship - This means more than inconvenience. You must show that you will have substantial financial loss if you pay your tax
on the date it is due. (Such a loss could be caused by having to sell property at a sacrifice price.) You must show that you do not have
enough cash, above necessary working capital, to pay the tax. In determining cash available, include anything you can convert into cash,
and use current market prices. Also show that you are unable to borrow money to pay the tax, except under terms that will cause you
severe loss and hardship.
2. Limitations - As a general rule, an extension of time to pay any part of the tax imposed by Chapters 32, 51, 52, and 53 of Title 26 U.S.C.
is limited to 6 months from the date fixed for payment. An extension may be granted for more than 6 months if you are abroad. No
extension is granted to pay a deficiency that is due to negligence, intentional disregard of rules and regulations, or fraud with intent to
3. Interest - You are still responsible for paying interest on the unpaid tax. Interest is charged at the rate established under 26 U.S.C.
6621(a) (subject to adjustments as provided in 26 U.S.C. 6621(b)).
4. Due Date of Payment for Which Extension is Granted - On or before the end of the extension period, pay the tax for which the extension
is granted (without notice and demand from the Director, National Revenue Center).
5. Filing Requirements - Submit this application with supporting documents on or before the date the tax is due. Attach this application to
your tax return and mail it to the appropriate Lockbox as indicated on the tax return.
