Title: Report—Proprietor of Export Warehouse.
OMB Number: 1512-0115.
Form Number: ATF F 5220.4.
Abstract: Proprietors account for taxable articles on this report. ATF uses this information to ensure that Federal laws and regulations have been complied with and determined taxes have been paid.
Current Actions: ATF F 5220.4, Report—Proprietor of Export Warehouse has been revised. The title of the form has been changed from Monthly Report-Export Warehouse Proprietor to Report—Proprietor of Export Warehouse. The instructions have been revised and ATF believes that the additional instructions will help proprietors better understand the reporting requirements. The revision will also reduce follow-up contact between proprietors and ATF personnel and make reporting consistent between proprietors of export warehouses and proprietors of tobacco products or cigarette papers and tubes. There is a decrease in burden hours due to a decrease in the number of respondents who will complete the form.
Type of Review: Revision.
Affected Public: Business or other for-profit.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 123.
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,181.
