Can you Change your Tax Stamp from an Individual to a Gun Trust?

Yes, you can transfer your "individual" tax stamp into a gun trust, corporation or other legal entity.  However, since you are transferring the NFA firearm from one entity (yourself) to a different entity (your gun trust, corporation or other legal entity), you will need to pay the ATF the $200 tax stamp again.  You can still use the NFA firearm, while the 6 to 11 month approval takes place.  The co-trustees or responsible persons in your gun trust, corporation, or other legal entity won't be able to possess, transport, store or use the NFA firearm without your presence until the gun trust, corporation, or other legal entity has the approved tax stamp back from the ATF.
