Change of address for NFA's

Moving within the state of Texas, what form does ATF need to be notified of my new address?

You can either notify them in writing or use a 5320.20

I wouldn't hold my breath if I was you. I mailed my 5320-20 form on April 3. It was signed by the ATF on April 7 and I received the completed form back in late September.

Wouldn't the 5320 be for INTERstate, as opposed to the OP's question about moving within the state?

Yes. Within a state only a courtesy notice to ATF is requested. It's not required.

I was told by the ATF that when the location of NFA item(s) change a 5320-20 has to be completed. I had to fill out this form even though I had only moved four blocks from the address on the original Form 4. They want to know where the weapon(s)/item(s) is located.

The 5320-20 form: Application To Transport Interstate or to Temporarily Export Certain NFA Weapons is in fact a permission request to remove the item(s) from one location and transport to another. A high percentage of these 5320-20 forms are filled out and approved by the ATF long after the item(s) have already been moved.

On the Form 5320-20, the operative word is INTERSTATE. I have moved three times within my own state and never notified BATF and the only way they would know I moved is when I acquire or sell something.

IMO, believe me, they KNOW where you are!!
