New mailing addresses for many ATF registration forms

February 1, 2019

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is committed to ensuring public safety by working directly and through partnerships to assist federal firearms licensees (FFL) and federal explosives licensees and permittees (FEL/P) in complying with federal laws and regulations.

This is to advise the Federal Firearms and Explosives industry, Special Occupational and Individual National Firearms Act (NFA) tax payers, as well as Arms Export Control Act (AECA) registrants of the change in contract lockbox services from Bank of America in Atlanta, GA to U.S. Bank in Portland, OR. The U.S. Treasury – Bureau of Fiscal Services has set an effective date of February 1, 2019, for all ATF lockboxes to transition.

Please note: Applications received at the former Atlanta, GA address after February 1, 2019, will be forwarded overnight to the new Portland, OR address for 90 days ONLY.
