Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms

Proposed Collection; Comment Request

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.


SUMMARY: The Department of the Treasury, as part of its continuing 
effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general 
public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment 
on proposed and/or continuing information collections, as required by 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104-13 (44 U.S.C. 
3506(c)(2)(A)). Currently, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms 
within the Department of the Treasury is soliciting comments concerning 
the Report--Proprietor of Export Warehouse.

DATES: Written comments should be received on or before July 29, 2002 
to be assured of consideration.

ADDRESSES: Direct all written comments to Alcohol, Tobacco and 
Firearms, Linda Barnes, 650 Massachusetts Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 
20226, (202) 927-8930.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or 
copies of the form(s) and instructions should be directed to Robert P.
    Ruhf, Regulations Division, 650 Massachusetts Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20226, (202) 927-8210.

    Title: Report--Proprietor of Export Warehouse.
    OMB Number: 1512-0115.
    Form Number: ATF F 5220.4.
    Abstract: Proprietors account for taxable articles on this report. 
ATF uses this information to ensure that Federal laws and regulations 
have been complied with and determined taxes have been paid.
    Current Actions: ATF F 5220.4, Report--Proprietor of Export 
Warehouse has been revised. The title of the form has been changed from 
Monthly Report-Export Warehouse Proprietor to Report--Proprietor of 
Export Warehouse. The instructions have been revised and ATF believes 
that the additional instructions will help proprietors better 
understand the reporting requirements. The revision will also reduce 
follow-up contact between proprietors and ATF personnel and make 
reporting consistent between proprietors of export warehouses and 
proprietors of tobacco products or cigarette papers and tubes. There is 
a decrease in burden hours due to a decrease in the number of 
respondents who will complete the form.
    Type of Review: Revision.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profit.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 123.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,181.

the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance 
of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall 
have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of 
the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the 
quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) 
ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on
