Your Chief Law enforcement officer does NOT need to sign off on a TRUST application.
Form 5330.20 "Certification of Compliance" is not needed for TRUST.
Fingerprint Cards FBI Forms FD-258 are not needed for TRUST applications.
Pitfalls to avoid:
Each Form 4 needs to be filled out on ONE SHEET OF PAPER FRONT AND BACK.
Your Form 4 needs to be mailed in duplicate. TWO COPIES EACH WITH ORIGINAL IN INK SIGNATURES. So fill it out first, then copy, then sign each form.
You need to include a check for $200 Made out to the "National Firearms Act Branch, BATFE"
You can make one check out for multiple items.
Mail out checklist:
[ ]1. Form 5320.4 in DUPLICATE (2 forms)
[ ]2. TRUST: Full Trust including Schedule A
[ ]3. Check for $200 per item.
Mail them to the address on the top right of the form. It should read:
National Firearms Act Branch Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, P.O. Box 530298 Atlanta, GA 30353-0298
How's this look? I hate to have to do it over...
