Any word on the Form-4 e-file?

Location:

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone know the status on the BATFE Form-4 e-file? I was told late Summer or in the 4th quarter of this year as they are working out code issues.

It would be nice to have a 1 month wait instead of 8 months.

First trial swarmed their servers. Trial of new server system probably early 2020.  The snafu still is the paper FP cards

the fingerprint cards have nothing to do with it.  They are having issues with their programs.  They cannot coordinate and process a form 1 for reactivation from a form 5 machine gun.  Until that is handled an efile form 4 is out of the question.  Even if it's done, times are unlikely to drop all that fast if at all since that's where the volume is, and that takes

examiners, that they apparently don't have?  It's now been "years" and they haven't caught up, they obviously don't have a plan to do so.

To throw in my .02, I called the NFA branch and I asked a few questions and they said there wasn't any estimated eta. for the e file form 4 to start working and it unfortunate.

Yeah, I did the same via email, but then again, they almost assuredly wouldn’t tell us anyway even if they had one, which I’m sure they do. A) because they hate us, and B) because they’re the govt and they do as they please for the most part.
