How Long Do You Have to Resubmit a ATF Correction Letter?

Correction letters for ATF Form 1, ATF Form 4, and ATF Form 5 applications can happen for a multitude of reasons.  When a correction letter is made, the correction letter is sent to your FFL/SOT dealer or to yourself, if you are applying using the ATF Form 1 or ATF Form 5 paperwork.  Once a correction letter is created the examiner will post mark the date and mail the correction letter to your FFL/SOT or to yourself, depending on the application type as mentioned above.  The response required by date is one month from the date that the correction letter was created by the examiner. For example, your correction letter was mailed to you on October 26th, 2019, you will have until November 26th, 2019 to have the correction letter delivered to your examiner.  If the correction letter response isn't received in that time frame the ATF will disapprove your application and you will need to create a new application.  This is denoted on the correction letter and states, "All pending applications will be disapproved if no response is received by the response date listed above."  The response date is denoted on the correction letter next to the "Response Required By:" Date.  With that being said, it is important to have your correction letter response mailed and received before the cutoff date.
