Since Friday, April 4, the ATF eFile website has been undergoing maintenance. ATF continues to accept paperwork for NFA firearms submitted in hard copy by mail. Previously ATF shutdown the eFile site for brief maintenance work on numerous occasions; however we expect the current maintenence will be more extensive. After six months' experience, several issues have been identified with the design of the eFile system that need fixing. Reportedly ATF has already allocated funds for this purposes, and they are consulting the firearms industry to determine the best configuation for eFile system going forward. While eFile had glitches, it did enable thousands of applicants to obtain tax stamps for NFA firearms in as little as 90-120 days. Allegedly the ATF has a goal of accomplishing even faster turnaround times with eFile, which would presumably be possible once the glitches are removed. Until then, we encourage clients to submit their NFA paperwork by mail now rather than waiting for eFile.
