After reading the FAQ, I noticed that, by law, you do not need to notify the ATF when traveling across state lines (as opposed to other ATF items, such as an SBR). With that said, do you need to file the application, pay taxes, or anything else when moving? I am not 100% certain of what my residence status will be 2 years from now. Currently I am in NM, but there is a good chance that I will be in TX sometime next year, give or take.

Yes you will have to notify ATF that you are moving.

You can use a 5320.20 to do the move then when you get a permanent address send them a letter updating your address for your NFA gear.

Thats what I did, just sent them a letter with my new address and verified it 2 months later(average processing time according to ATF).

YOU WILL NOT HAVE PAY ANOTHER TAX or anything(unless there are local issues that require it, but nothing at the Fed level).

You might want to look at the state law on trust also.

If it/they are in a trust you also need to change the address and get it notarize again. Some state do required that you register you trust.

I'm in the same boat, I just moved to FL from VA. My NFA goodies are still in VA, since I'm currently living in a hotel. Does Florida require individuals to register Trusts?

Anyone have a good source to check state by state trust laws? I'm in the same boat with these guys, I'm in AZ now with NFA toys left behind while I house shop.

There is no site that I am aware of that deals strictly with Trusts.

I would suggest a friendly visit to a lawyer, will be the best bucks you ever spend, unless you can get soem free advice, which all and out just gotta ask.
