Common Errors on the Firearm Ammunition Excise Tax (FAET) Quarterly Tax Return
Firearm and ammunition manufacturers and importers generally are required to calculate, file and pay quarterly excise taxes. The form used is known as the FEDERAL FIREARMS AND AMMUNITION QUARTERLY EXCISE TAX RETURN (TTB F 5300.26).
This webinar is designed to help guide employees responsible for the preparation of these returns in accurately completing and supporting the calculations necessary to compute the excise tax liability. Join NSSF Excise Tax Consultant, Richard Weimer for this insightful discussion where he will run through the form line by line pointing out common errors made while showing you how to correct them. We’ll then proceed with opening the session up for Q&A.
