I have little idea what I'm doing, so I just did what my suppressor sales guy told me to do. I don't think he's dealt with new people in a while, so it didn't all go swimmingly.

On May 10th, 2017, I sent off my paperwork for a suppressor. Beforehand, I texted him 11 pics of what I was going to mail off to the ATF so I could be sure I had everything right. He said, "Looks good, send it". So I did. The next day, I asked him if I was supposed to also include a copy of my trust paperwork. I was supposed to and I didn't. He said not to worry about it and they'd just send an error letter.

Slow forward 9 months. They still haven't cashed my check. I called Dec 26th and they said they received my paperwork, but I shouldn't send in the trust paperwork because it's unlikely they could link it to my paperwork they have on hand. Should I be concerned at all that they haven't cashed my check, or is this what's to be expected when I sabotage myself right off the bat?

Checks are processed as ACH debit, check your bank account. On the trust thing, your dealer will get the letter... resubmit and it'll clear in under 2 weeks.

I’d be a little worried, but I’m not here to cause you more distress. I’ve read where people have had their entire submission rejected, $200 refunded over several months and to the back of the line you go for errors. My personal experience has had 2 submissions by my dealer having a mistake. They received a letter from the ATF, as did I, my dealer made the correction and a week or 2 later I was good to go. Hopefully best case scenario plays out for you. Having said all that, I would be on the phone with ATF as I’ve always had my check cashed in a matter of a couple of weeks tops, no matter what the return times happened to be at the time.

I called today and they said they received everything on May 17th. Once they get to processing my paperwork, which they haven't yet, my dealer will be notified of the missing paperwork. I guess that means everything is still on track. I guess I can relax and enjoy a bit more waiting until I hear otherwise.

That is of that they haven't cashed your check yet. That usually happens within days, or a week or two depending on how busy they are. Check to make sure it didn't clear, as it would be a ACH debit like Candyman.45 said. All of my customers payments go through very fast, usually within a day or two depending on if it credit card or check. As for the missing paperwork, the agent will call your FFL to notify them of the missing paperwork, and they can simply email a copy in to the ATF. I have had them call for customers that forgot trust paperwork, or responsible person questionnaires.

I always go over the paperwork with customers, and give them a copy of the Silencerco SuppressED pamphlet, as it has a great checklist and instructions in it for folks to follow. It saves on a lot of the calls with questions to me about anything they forgot that we went over when I give them the form 4's, and paperwork to submit.

Damn, you guys were right. Of course. Smile It went through as an ACH debit on 5/18/17. Woo hoo!

I wouldn't be worried about the trust, my first time I did 2 at once but only sent 1 copy of my trust ... The two form 1's got separated and the trust went with one, the second examiner sent an error letter ... I called him and he let me fax him a copy of my trust, it was only delayed by a couple days.

I have a can in jail that I forgot to send a copy of my trust for too.

I anticipate within the next 8 weeks or so, my shop will get notified of the mistake and we will mail it in then.

There's nothing you can do about it until that notification. I've not known anyone who has gone to the back of the line, but that would suck!

I'll let you know what happens when the notification comes in.

I got an email from the ATF yesterday. They sent the email to both my FFL/SOT and me indicating my Declaration of Trust was not attached.

I attached a pdf version of my Declaration and it was done. She Kindly replied back that she received the attachment.
