Direct Shipper Delivery Reports

Direct Shipper Delivery Reports Must Be Filed by Common Carriers

Beginning July 1, 2018, every common carrier, other than a rail carrier, who contracts with a direct shipper to deliver wine, beer or other alcoholic beverages into Tennessee must file a monthly report of those shipments with the Department of Revenue. The first report is due August 27, 2018. 

Every report should contain the following information for each delivery (click here for details of the delivery report record format):

  • Direct shipper name and business address
  • Delivery recipient name and address
  • Weight of the package delivered to the recipient
  • A unique tracking number
  • Date of the delivery

The reports will be due each month on the 25th day of the month following the reporting period, or on the following work day if the 25th falls on a weekend or holiday.  The reports should contain only information for deliveries with delivery dates beginning on the first day of the reporting month through the last day of the reporting month.  Common carriers must file the report in TNTAP at

Carriers required to file the report may submit a technical question or upload a test file at
