The SS/Docusign system is much easier to navigate and a much better customer/user experience.

    If you have Fingerprint cards on hand, and think you can manage your way through the horrible UX of the ATF's website, you're probably better off to go direct to eFile through the ATF website. A few warnings: be prepared to mail your fingerprint cards right away and know that if you use a trust the file size has to be less than 3MB, I believe. I had to break my scanned trust into 4 files which took a while (and luckily have access to a full version of Adobe Acrobat), plus getting the digital signature on the RPQ took me some time to figure out. I probably spent 90 minutes getting everything ready for the ATF eFile (although I could probably do the next one in 20 minutes). The SS process takes about 10 or 15 and they handle the Fingerprint cards for you. So, it depends on if you value speed or convenience more.
    Thanks for the information. In the old eForms system, i know there was a file size limit for documents that were uploaded but i forget what it was. I wound up scanning my trust at a lower resolution (but still very readable) in order to shrink the file size and keep it intact as one document. I don't have anything but adobe reader on my computer (a MacBook), so not sure if i'll be able to add my signature. May have to print the completed form, sign, and scan it back in. I think i'll see if SS can mail some completed fingerprint cards to me so i can mail them on to BATFE as soon as i submit.

    The best way to survive a violent encounter is to be the one inflicting the most violence.

    Good information. If it means them fighting it out until the wall gets money I'm willing to wait.

    I submitted a form 1 on December 19. I will keep you updated when I get it back. Willing to wait for the wall but it is unfortunate timing.

    This happened to me the last shut down.

    I submitted 2 Form 1's Dec 10th. Fingerprints were received the 14th. Nothing yet. I don't anticipate anything until the shut down is over.
