The purpose of filling out your info is to help show the trends in processing time. For example, http://www.nfatracker.com/TrendGraph.aspx with the "Form 4 Trust" and "Paper Form" being the only boxes checked, you can see there's a downward trend for those time of forms. In other words, the examiners are getting them done faster than they are being submitted and are currently around the 80 day mark for approval. However, switch to "Form 1 Trust" and "E-File Form" and you will see an upward trend, not processing as fast as they are being submitted, averaging around 50 days and going higher.Chedr wrote:What's the deal with NFA tracker? You just enter you own info? I can track it fine on a calendar so why NFA tracker? To let others know? Please explain.
So, while you could keep the little information that they ask on the nfatracker website to yourself, by submitting it, you actually help out everyone else so they won't be calling after 30 days asking "Where is my can?" or "When will my SBR be approved?" - OR, believing the standard response from the NFA branch of "6-9 months".
