ATF Form 4 Processing

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms

Effective March 23, 2015, HB234 became law. The Sheriff is now required to accept and process an ATF Form 4 by running a criminal background check like a Concealed Carry handgun license check.
The law also requires that ATF Form 4 applicants fill out an application and submit to electronic fingerprinting before the Sheriff will sign off on the ATF Form 4.

As a result of the costs that the Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office incurs to complete the required checks, the fee schedule is as follows:

$50.00 for an applicant who has resided in Ohio for five (5) years or more.

$80.00 for an applicant who has resided in Ohio for less than five (5) years.

$15.00 for an applicant who requires an ink rolled ten-print fingerprint card.

ATF Form 4’s will only be accepted during the same times as Concealed Carry applications, which are listed below:

Monday – Friday: 9:30am – 3:00pm

NOTE : These fees are separate and apart from any ATF fees.

The Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office does not supply or issue ATF Form 4.
