Atf And Tax Checks
Posted 23 December 2005 - 12:20 PM
Has the BATFE changed the way they proccess the forms?
My C3 mailed off the forms, fingerprint cards and the checks (for two transfers) for the tax five weeks ago and the checks still have not cleared my bank?
The only info I can get from the NFA branch phone number is "it is not in the system yet."
Has anyone else had to wait this long for them to cash the checks? On my other transfers, the checks cleared within a week.
I hope I'm not looking at a "lost in the mail" problem!

The new gun is an Ingram M10/9 and Bowers CAC-9 supressor.
The M10 looks like it has only been tests fired. It was made in 1972.
The CAC-9 is new production.
I was told by NFA branch that the checks go to Chicago. I found this out shortly after posting this topic.
He said that it could take up five weeks, and that I should wait until the begining of 2006 and call back then.
The only positive factor about this is that my C3 owns the range I shoot at, so I can shoot it. I just can't take it home.
BTW, it runs like a dream but mags are expensive!

I passed this info on to the C3, we resubmitted the paperwork again and bingo, the check cashed in a week and a half!
My first one was either lost in the mail, or he never sent it in the first place.
I think I'll use a different C3 on the next one.

I am about to transfer a M1 Thompson myself. I will let you know when my check is cashed after the CLEO signs off (about 3-4 weeks). I usually send the paperwork myself (cause I am paranoid) via priority mail with delivery confirmation. It is only a few bucks.

My last check cleared on Oct 23 and the Form 4 just arrived on Dec 20. That was a two month improvement over the last two. I'm guessing thats the WV office.
I'm looking for FedEx to arrive Monday with a slightly late, but totally welcome Xmas present.

I've got a feeling that this transfer is going to take looooooong time to clear!

It sound to me like your package went to the wrong place and had to find it’s way home, we’ll likely never know. Think positively about the rest of the process- good vibrations you know……
