SOT dealer moved during transfer

Location:

7 posts in this topic

The dealer handling my nfa transfer moved four days before my paperwork was approved by the ATF.  Am I going to have to file the paperwork again or can the ATF just update the address and send it again?

As long as YOU havent moved before the transfer took place, your fine. The dealer legally has to notify the batf that he was moving and they would inspect the new premises and issue a updated license to him. This might delay your paperwork a bit as the batf is a typical incompetent government entity. Now they hopefully can find the paperwork and send it to his new address and not his old address.

I'm sure your SOT used a forwarding mail request with the USPS.

My last approve Form 4 (5 days ago) states  the following on the front of the envelope:

Forwarding Service Requested

Report any address changes to NFA Division at (304) 616-4500

 

Good Luck

As long as the FFL/SOT is still in the same state there is nothing you need to do.  Your transfer will continue as previously expected.  Also, it takes more than 4 days for the ATF to actually send out the paperwork after approval, sometimes as long as a month, so don't get nervous if your dealer doesn't have it yet.

And what if the dealer does move to a different State that borders the State where the form originated? I may move my SOT to Missouri from Kansas if taxes keep going out of sight where I am located.  No immediate plans to move but a possibility in future.

If you are moving out of state, contact the NFA division and they will work with you to expedite any outstanding Form 4 transfers.  Any that are not approved and transferred to the non-licensed buyer on the date you move out of state will need to be transferred to another dealer in your old state (the one in which the buyer resides) and a new Form 4 will need to be submitted by that dealer.

Your FFL will transfer to your new state and you will be issued a new FFL number once you submit a form 5300.38 and bare approved for business in your new state, which may require zoning/business documentation and another interview just like your original application.  They ask that you submit it not less than 30 days before your planned move but I took almost exactly 4 months from the day I Priority Mailed the COA to receive mine so plan accordingly.  Unfortunately the SOT is not automatically updated, so after receiving your new FFL, you will need to send a copy along with your current (but now no longer valid) SOT and an updated 5630.7 SOT application (no new payment required) to the NFA division or email it to the NFAfax email address, subject: SOT Specialist - Change of Address/State.  You should receive an updated SOT license in around 7-10 business days.
