Title: Modification of the Definition of Hard Cider 

This temporary rule will amend the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau regulations to implement certain changes made to the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 by the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 (PATH Act), which is Division Q of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016 (Pub.

Some makers of hard cider and perry may be affected by the definition change and the resulting tax rate and labeling requirement changes.
