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

ATF usually sends out the filing notice to all licensed manufacturers in mid February or early March. According to instruction 1(c), manufacturers have until April 1st to submit their annual report covering the preceding calendar year.
 
Example:
  • If you receive a request letter in the mail in February 2017, then the notice from ATF is requesting calendar year 2016 data.
