It's been 108 days since November 30, 2014 when I received an email from the ATF telling me my Form 1 was disapproved. Why it was disapproved is a joke, it took me 4 days to complete the online form -literally 4 frikkin' days due to the "system" dragging ass or simply not responding- but I was told the Applicants Name ie: my NFA Trust was incomplete which again is utter nonsense since I took a screenshot of each page and it IS clearly there AND complete. The ATF being a typical inept and incompetent gubment agency is staffed with morons of the highest order. In the disapproval email I am advised a $200 refund will be forthcoming.....really!?! So now after 108 days have passed I ponder the question, when exactly will it be forthcoming?
A month and a half ago I phoned NFA Branch and was told it can take up to 90 days but generally no more than 60 to process refunds. Again I ask, where's my money? I have called everyday this week and each time I am told, "yes, you should've received your refund by now but have you spoken to this or that person?". Of course I have not spoken to this or that person because all I get is this or that person's voicemail and as per gubment status quo, never hear back.
It's not so much the $200 although I could by more ammo with the money no, for me it's the principal of the matter. I loathe, detest and despise stupidity, incompetence, laziness and dishonesty in any form. All the previously mentioned should automatically and involuntarily cause physiological pain and discomfort to the point of rendering the perpetrator catatonic. Trust me, the world would be a better place. Okay, rant......OFF!
How long has anyone else had to wait for an NFA refund?
