When the notice is sent out, what year is ATF requesting?

ATF usually sends out the filing notice to all licensed manufacturers in late February or early March. According to Section 1(c) of the second page, manufacturers have until April 1st to submit an annual report covering the preceding calendar year’s business activity.

  • If you receive a request letter in the mail on March 5, 2012, then the notice from ATF is requesting calendar year 2011 production data.
