The ATF has released new versions of seven revised FFL & SOT forms! We’ve got the latest versions here for you to download here. Below are descriptions, and the most up-to-date versions, of each of the following forms:
All of these include revised mailing addresses and went into effect February 1, 2019. The ATF has put a 90-day courtesy period in place during which they will forward forms mailed to the old (incorrect) address, to the new (revised) address, on your behalf. If you mail any of these forms after April 30, 2019, to the old address, they will not be received by the ATF.
We strongly recommend that you start using these forms right away, rather than waiting. The forms may seem straightforward, but there are a lot of things to take into consideration when using them. We cover this, and provide all the latest versions, in our Get Your FFL & Become an SOT courses. If interested in both, you can save $30 by bundling the courses together!
