Amends the Internal Revenue Code to:

  • allow such taxpayers who reasonably expect to have a tax liability of not more than $1,000 per year and who were liable for not more than $1,000 in taxes in the preceding calendar year to file and pay such taxes annually rather than quarterly;
  • exclude the aging period from the production period for beer, wine, or distilled spirits for purposes of determining whether a taxpayer can expense, rather than capitalize, interest costs paid or incurred during the production period;
  • reduce excise tax rates on beer, wine, and distilled spirits produced in the United States;
  • permit the transfer of beer between bonded facilities without payment of tax;
  • modify the definition of "hard cider" for excise tax purposes; and
