The wholesaler/distributor report includes sales of beer and tobacco products to Tennessee retailers.
In addition, beginning in January 2016, wholesalers/distributors making more than $500,000 in sales of non-alcoholic beverages, candy, and food are also required to file an information report reporting these sales. This is in addition to the already required tobacco products and beer sales. The first information report under this new requirement was due July 25, 2016. Sales of perishable grocery items are exempt from this requirement. Examples of perishable grocery items include fruits; milk; vegetables; deli meats, cheeses, and salads; other deli products; fresh, refrigerated, or frozen meats; frozen dinners/entrees/meals; frozen pizza; and other frozen foods.
