FYI: My paper trust SBR F1 was submitted 07-13-16, check cashed 07-25-16, and according to today’s phone call, approved on 07-02-17. I’m not gloating, but knew some of you needed some reason to hope.
Due to an error (in a BATFE drop-down box re: mfg) on an earlier e-file F1, had to resubmit by paper (e-file down) on 07-12-16. They show received on 07-25-16. Checked 06-01-17 – over ten months and still pending. Advised currently working the second week of July, 2016, and would probably be another month until mine approved.
