Why are negative numbers not allowed on the return?

To correctly complete Form RPD-41129, Liquor Excise Tax Return , do not report negative amounts on either the form or on its schedules. A common reason for reporting negative numbers is entering incorrectly the number of alcoholic beverages on which the liquor excise tax was paid in a prior period. If beverages on which a liquor excise tax was paid in a prior period were destroyed in shipment, spoiled, or otherwise so damaged as to be unfit for sale or consumption, file Form RPD-41071, Application for Tax Refund Include proof that the liquor excise tax was paid on the product, and proof of destruction, spoilage, or damage.
