ATF Changes Mailing Address for NFA and Other Forms from Atlanta to Portland

ATF Changes Mailing Address for NFA and Other Forms from Atlanta to Portland

06 February 2019

ATF sealAs of February 1, 2019, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) requires the use of a new address to submit various forms, particulary applications to register firearms regulated under the National Firearms Act (NFA), such as silencers, short barrel rifles, and machine guns. This change reflects a shift by ATF of its banking from Bank of America in Atlanta to U.S. Bank in Portland, Oregon.  

The instructions in the below forms have been updated to reflect the new mailing addresses:

Form 1 (5320.1) – Application to Make and Register a Firearm
Form 4 (5320.4) – Application for Tax paid Transfer and Registration of a Firearm
Form 7 (5310.12) / 7 CR (5310.16) – Application for Federal Firearms License
Form 8 (5310.11) – Federal Firearms Licensee Renewal Application
Form 5400.13/16 – Application for Explosives License or Permit
Form 4587 – Application to Register as an Importer of U.S. Munitions Import List Articles
