Future Developments For the latest information about developments related to Form 8906 and its instructions, such as legislation enacted after they were published, go to www.irs.gov/Form8906. Purpose of Form Use Form 8906 to claim the distilled spirits credit. The credit is part of the general business credit. Partnerships and S corporations must file this form to claim the credit. All other taxpayers are not required to complete or file this form if their only source for this credit is a partnership or S corporation. Instead, they can report this credit directly on line 1n in Part III of Form 3800, General Business Credit. How To Figure the Credit Generally, the credit for the tax year is figured by multiplying the number of cases of bottled distilled spirits purchased or stored during the tax year by the average tax-financing cost per case for the most recent calendar year ending before the beginning of the tax year. See the instructions for line 1 below. Specific Instructions Line 1 If you are an eligible wholesaler, enter the number of cases of distilled spirits that were bottled in the United States and purchased by you during the tax year directly from the bottler of the spirits. An eligible wholesaler is any person who holds a permit under the Federal Alcohol Administration Act as a wholesaler of distilled spirits and is not a state or political subdivision thereof, or an agency of either. If you are not an eligible wholesaler, but you are subject to section 5005, enter the number of cases of bottled distilled spirits which are stored in a warehouse operated by, or on behalf of, a state or any political subdivision thereof, or an agency of either, and for which title has not passed on an unconditional sale basis. For purposes of this line, a case consists of twelve 80-proof 750-milliliter bottles. For any lot of distilled spirits that does not consist of cases of 80-proof 750-milliliter bottles, figure the number of cases in the lot as follows. 1. Divide the number of liters in the lot by 9. 2. Multiply the result by a fraction, the numerator of which is the stated proof of the lot and the denominator of which is 80. 3. The result is the number of cases in the lot. Line 4 Enter total distilled spirits credits from: • Schedule K-1 (Form 1065), Partner's Share of Income, Deductions, Credits, etc., box 15 (code P); and • Schedule K-1 (Form 1120S), Shareholder's Share of Income, Deductions, Credits, etc., box 13 (code P). Partnerships and S corporations report the above credits on line 4. All other filers figuring a separate credit on earlier lines also report the above credits on line 4. All others not using earlier lines to figure a separate credit can report the above credits directly on Form 3800, Part III, line 1n. Paperwork Reduction Act Notice.

Form 8906 is a Federal Other form. States often have dozens of even hundreds of various tax credits, which, unlike deductions, provide a dollar-for-dollar reduction of tax liability. Some common tax credits apply to many taxpayers, while others only apply to extremely specific situations. In most cases, you will have to provide evidence to show that you are eligible for the tax credit, and calculate the amount of the credit to which you are entitled.
