How to File an Alcoholic Beverage Common Carrier’s Report of Delivery


In this video, we will show you how to file
an Alcoholic Beverage Common Carrier’s Report of Delivery. We protect all the confidential information
you provide to us. First, go to the website, CDTFA.CA.GOV, and
at the top click on “Login.” That will take you to the Online Services
Portal. To file an Alcoholic Beverage Common Carrier’s
Report of Delivery, you must login with a username and password. For assistance with creating a username and
password, please watch our tutorials online. On this screen, you will see a list of available
tax and fee programs. In this example, we are filing an Alcoholic
Beverage Common Carrier’s Report of Delivery which is under the Alcoholic Beverage Tax. Click on the “File, Pay, and View” link
located here. On the CDTFA online services page, we will
enter our username and password. Then click “Login.” On the portal homepage, under the Accounts
tab, we will click on the “Alcohol Common Carrier” hyperlink. This will take us to the Alcohol Common Carrier
account page. Under the Periods tab, click on the report
period for which you would like to file. In our example, we will file for the November
2019 period, which is displayed by the reporting period end date of November 30th, 2019. Click on the “File Return” hyperlink next
to the period for which you are filing. This brings us to the Initial Questions page. If you did not deliver any interstate shipments
of alcoholic beverages into California this reporting period, select “No.” In this example, we did deliver interstate
shipments of alcoholic beverages into California. We will select “Yes” and click “Next.” On the next question, you will have two options
– manually enter your report or Upload an Excel Workbook. If you have multiple transactions, we recommend
uploading an Excel Workbook. To upload, select “Upload an Excel Workbook.” You can download and complete the template
by clicking “here” then uploading it into the system by clicking “Upload Report.” Please note, once you’ve uploaded the report,
the figures should prepopulate on the next page. However, in our example, we will show you
how to manually add a report to your return. Select “Manually” and click “Next.” On the Common Carrier’s Report of Delivery
page, click “Add a Record.” If you completed the template and uploaded
a report, this field will prepopulate for you. A window will appear, and you must enter all
required information to proceed. Enter the required information, then click
“Add.” The record will now appear in the table. You can add more records by clicking “Add
a Record.” You can also edit the record by clicking the
pencil and paper icon, copy the record with the clipboard icon, or delete the record with
the paper and red x icon. In this example, we have nothing else to add
and we will click “Next.” Enter your required information and click
“Submit.” When you click “Submit,” a window will
appear to confirm your intent to file electronically and that your report is true, correct, and
complete. Please read the information carefully. Enter your password and click “OK” to
submit. This will serve as your authorization and
confirmation. You will not receive a confirmation email. This Confirmation page represents a report
filing only. To print your submitted report, click on the
“Print Return” button. If you still have questions, please call our
Customer Service Center at 1-800-400-7115.
