work was slow today, so i decided to call the atf on my late Dec 2016 form 4....of course its just pending....asked why trusts are taking 12 months while individuals are now 4-6 months ahead and into march 2017.......she said because of having to verify each trust member and the fingerprints....so if you have 10 trust members they need to go through 10 people.....

 

my question---they didnt have to do this before? because of the fingerprints this has changed things? i dont quite get it....what changed on the trust that is taking 2x longer....trusts are at early Oct 2016and individuals are march 2017.........when you look at the graphs they used to track with each other...now the indivual has dropped like a rock and the trust is a straight line at 350 days (except for a couple of people)

Trusts did not have to have fingerprints.  Now they do, everyone listed on them has to have fingerprints, so the larger the trust the more vetting, hence longer time to complete.

i would think Trusts are going to die off for many...im still using them, but i notice barely a mark after July on NFA Tracker, so most have stopped using them i guess........if someone has 10 people in their trusts thats 10 people to check on vs 1 for individual....i still have to wonder if there is an even longer delay on purpose to discourage the Trust....im filing another one next week and i had to think twice about all the reasons i choose a trust over individual....because i know ill most likely be waiting 9-12 months still....i see no sign of it moving down on NFA tracker, while individual appears down to 6-7 months right now......Trust is still a year...with some reporting 400+ days

Well today marks 11 months since mailed Form 4 out, from what other's have been running I'd think about 2 to 3 more weeks!  That is a long wait....dang!
