Does your Passport Photo Need your Full Name, Last 4 of SSN, and Business Address on the ATF 5320.23 Form?by National Gun Trusts
Does your passport phone need your full name, last 4 of your SSN, and business address on the ATF 5320.23 Responsible Persons Questionnaire when you are applying for an NFA firearm? If you are applying on your ATF tax stamp application as an individual you aren’t required to use the ATF 5320.23. The questions from the ATF 5320.23 are answered on the ATF Form 1 and the ATF Form 4. If however, you are applying with the ATF Form 1 or the ATF Form 4 you will need to also attach your required passport photo to the ATF 5320.23 form. The ATF has specific passport photo requirements. One of which is what to write on the back of the passport photo and reads:
3. On back of photograph print full name, last 4 of SSN, and business address.
Full Name: Full name of the applicant
Last 4 of SSN: Last 4 digits of the applicant's social security number
Business Address: Address of the applicant not the FFL's address.
What happens if you do not complete this task and write the above information on the reverse side of your passport photo? We cannot say that the ATF will not approve your application because you didn’t complete this task. We have heard of applicants still receiving their tax stamp with this information on the reverse side of their passport photo. However, the purpose of this is to make sure the ATF knows which application your photo belongs to, if in the event your photo becomes separated from your application. To further minimize any chances of the delay, this task should be completed.
We provide passport photo printing services to ensure your passport photo will be accepted by the ATF.
