Put wrong date on Form 4, need advice

General silencer discussion. If you want to talk about a specific silenced rifle or pistol, it is best to do that in the rifle or pistol section for that brand.

Put wrong date on Form 4, need advice

Post by Philrozzi » Mon Aug 03, 2015 1:48 am

So I recently mailed out a form 4 and by accident I didn't change the date on the first page of the trust to correspond with the rest of the paperwork.

My dealer mailed out the paperwork filled out already with the date July 22 on all of it. I received this paperwork on July 24th so I drew up my trust, signed the trust with the date of July 22nd to correspond with form 4 and had it notarized and mailed it.

I was just going over my trust again and noticed that I forgot to change the date in the trust on the very first page that was automatically inserted by the computer program. The line states that the trust was created on July 24th while I have signed the trust and notarized it with July 22nd on it.

I'm so pissed, what should I do? Is that a minor detail or will they want me to fix it? And should I call them to send out a revised front page or just let them contact me if they even go through the trust?

No expert or lawyer buy I would wait for them to reject it and fix it and send it back in. I believe if they reject it you can fix why it was rejected and get it approved right away instead of another long wait.

If you resend something now i don't believe it will help. Your forms go into stack of other forms and is lost for all intense and purposes until it gets to the examiners desk and he pulls it out to examin it. You sending something else at a later date won't get to your existing paper work already filed. This is at least hoe I've come to understand the process. I'm sure others will chime in.

This is all of they even consider the date an issue to reject your forms. They might over look it and process it anyway.

I'm hoping they accept it because the date the notary marked down corresponds to the date on the form 4. I'm guessing as long as they get payment they should be happy but it sucks thinking about another possible delay since I already waited 7 months for the stupid silencer to come in.

The get the money before they even look at the forms.

You could send in a payment with a completely blank form and they'd still cash the check 6 weeks before they reject the form for being blank.

Just 2 days? Good nuff for gov't work.

Best thing to do is just cross your fingers. I'm thinking the trivial dates won't even be noticed. Bigger mistakes get passed through.

Good to know. I'm not that worried about it anymore, thanks.
