ATF eForms In Focus at 2021 FICC

HARTFORD, CT (March 4, 2021) – On January 28, the ATF provided a demonstration of the new electronic Form 4 to Orchid and other select members of the industry. Formally known as the “Application for Tax Paid Transfer and Registration of Firearm”, the Form 4 is used in the process of transferring NFA firearms to an unlicensed individual. The new electronic Form 4 is one of ten forms provided by ATF in their eForms system, alongside forms 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 6A, 9, 10 and 5300.11.

On Tuesday, June 8th, ATF will provide an overview and demo of its eForm software application to attendees of the Firearms Industry Compliance Conference (FICC).
