  • Invalid Cross Tier Warning: This warning is displayed when an applicant is applying for a new license of the same license type already currently held.
  • Excise Tax: If a wholesaler uses the File Upload option to file their report, they are unable to enter opening inventory.
  • Excise Tax: Spelling issue in warehouse report.
  • Application for a New Permit: Individual owner unable to update percent of ownership.
  • Excise Tax: Unable to view report submission information.
  • Excise Tax: Package size updates needed for web file and upload file reporting.
  • Contract Brewing Agreements — Add Contract/Agreement Information: Brewers are prevented from completing their application because AIMS does not allow the brewer and a contracting party to have a permit at the same location, which is a requirement for contract brewing.
  • Locating Multiple Businesses in AIMS: If an AIMS user has several business entities to manage, they have issues locating the tile with the business entity they need to access.
