    Since its a good round number and well over the “8 months” mark, I thought I would start a thread for the over 400 day crowd to see just how many of us there are.

    I just signed the tax disclosure consent form today. My Rep’s staff seems to really be on top of this.

    My rep has been pretty useless. His office inquired until they got this canned response from ATF:

    The processing time for a perfected ATF Form 4 application is at least 10 months, and can of course be longer if the form has some issues (i.e., is not perfected). Factors influencing the backlog include: 1) the implementation of the 41F Final Rule, which requires ATF to perform full criminal background checks on all individuals who are identified as a Responsible Persons of a trust or legal entity; 2) changes to various state laws which have in the past disallowed possession of certain NFA firearms and now those states are enacting legislation which would now allow possession and the volume of silencer transfers has increased tremendously. At this time, ATF is experiencing a backlog of over 125,000 applications.

    In 2016, ATF received more than 379,410 applications; in 2017, ATF received 386,210 applications; and in 2018, ATF received 339,278 applications.

    “ATF received 339,278 applications.”

    So over 67 million in revenue. and they still can’t get it right.

    ATF recieved on 4/2/18 as of last week my paperwork is still setting on the examiners desk, said she has not got the approval to send it to the FBI. The examiner was however nice enough to give me there direct phone number to call back and check next month instead of talking to a different person every time you call just to get some B.S. story

      to call back and check next month

      Next month? Wow what a deal.

      Not in the club yet with my Efile but calling today still has the shutdown being blamed. 120 days and some approved in 20 days.

      Frankly the calltakers are in the dark as much as the callers.

    1/20/18 stamp check cash date.

    452 days as of today.

    This is my fourth application for the tax stamp, with three suppressors and stamps in possession already, so my eligibility isn’t the issue.

        Oh no, I mean I bought August 23, 2017, my anniversary is on August 22, 2019 2 years! But it was not the NFA’s issue, it was the dealer who lost the paperwork for 7 months.
