The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) descended on the Union City offices of Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits last week according to an article in the San Francisco Chronicle. Union City is located just across the Bay Bridge from San Francisco.
A team from both federal agencies spent most of the day at the office facility. Neither agency or the company disclosed the nature or details of the visit.
The TTB enforces trade practice regulations and licensing of alcohol beverage companies and the IRS investigates corporate tax returns. Southern Glazer’s is the country’s largest liquor wholesaler.
