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

ATF sends out the filing notice to all licensed manufacturers in mid January or early February.  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 January 2018, then the notice from ATF is requesting calendar year 2017 data.
