The dealer. April forms have been returning. You're still on schedule
According to an article on the web dealer and manufacturer forms are being process by a reduced staff hoping to get paid one day but consumer form 1's and 4' are gathering dust.
If someone were to wait to submit a form 1 or 4 they'd just be farther down the list when the processing starts again.ETA:
A different article from yesterday.https://www.guns.com/news/2019/01/10/mo ... t-shutdown
“ASA can confirm that the NFA Division is not processing tax-paid transfers during the shutdown,” said the group.
However, while the applications have stalled, the payments sent in for tax stamps on NFA transfers are still being processed by Bank of America, as part of their contract with the government, as the financial institution itself is not affected by the shutdown. Once the checks are cashed, the forms are still heading to the NFA Division where they are piling up.
