NY Tax L § 428 (2015) What's This?

428. Records and reports of transportation. 1. Every person transporting alcoholic beverages within this state, whether such transportation originates within or without this state, when required by the commissioner, shall keep a true and accurate record of all alcoholic beverages so transported, showing such facts with relation to such alcoholic beverages and their transportation as the commissioner may require. Such record shall be open to inspection by the representatives of the department at any time and the commissioner may require from any such person returns of all or any part of the information shown by such records.

2. The operator of a motor vehicle, as such term is defined in subdivision three of section two hundred eighty-two of this chapter, or any other means of transport of liquors in which more than ninety liters of liquors is being transported in this state must have in his or her possession a manifest, invoice or other document which shows the name and address of the person from whom such liquors were received and the date and place of receipt of such liquor and the name and address of every person to whom such operator is to make delivery of the same and the place of delivery, together with the number of liters to be delivered to each person, and, if such liquor is being imported into the state in such motor vehicle or such other means of transport, the name of the distributor importing or causing such liquors to be imported into the state and such other information as the commissioner may require pursuant to rule or regulation. Every operator of such motor vehicle or such other means of transport shall at the request of a peace officer, acting pursuant to his special duties, a police officer, any representative of the department or any other person authorized by law to inquire into or investigate the transportation of such liquors, produce such manifest, invoice or other document for inspection. The person causing the operation of such motor vehicle or such other means of transport shall be responsible to cause the operator to keep in such operator's possession in such motor vehicle or such other means of transport the manifest, invoice or other document required by this section. The absence of the manifest, invoice or other document required by this section shall give rise to a presumption that the liquors being transported are being imported or caused to be imported into this state for sale or use therein by other than a registered distributor. Moreover, the absence of (1) the place of delivery of liquors on the manifest, invoice or other document with respect to liquors being imported into the state shall give rise to a presumption that such liquors are being imported into the state for sale or use in the state and (2) the name of a registered distributor on the manifest, invoice or other document with respect to liquors being imported into the state shall give rise to a presumption that such liquors are being so imported or caused to be imported into this state, for sale or use therein, by other than a registered distributor. Such presumptions may be rebutted by the introduction of substantial evidence to the contrary.
