What Is AIMS?

After creating an account and accessing the new system (see onboarding schedule above before doing this), you’ll be able to complete licensing tasks, product registration, excise tax reports and more from the convenience of your computer or mobile device 24/7.

With AIMS, you can say goodbye to mailing your paperwork and checks to TABC and say hello to the new online way of doing your TABC tasks.
