Filing Requirements for New York Wineries


 Certain New York wineries no longer need to file annual sales tax information returns.

New York law has required wholesalers of alcoholic beverages to file annual sales tax information returns since 2009. They are due on or before March 20 of each year. Now, however, certain wineries are excluded from that requirement.

Chapter 485 (2015), effective November 20, 2015, excludes the following wineries from filing sales tax information returns:

  • Any business operating under a winery license that produces less than 150,000 finished gallons of wine per year.

Businesses operating under a farm winery license were excluded from this requirement as of July 18, 2012.

Additional information is available on New York State Department of Taxation and Finance TSB-M-16(1)S.
