    I got my trust notarized and registered today and when I registered it the lady at the courthouse said i had to leave my original copy there. I don't know a whole lot about this and i just want to find out if the photo copy of my trust paperwork is enough or if i need notarized copies to send in. the press/stamp thing my notary used didnt show up at all in the photo copy. i did get a stamped paper certifying the original trust is at the courthouse. So basically i need to know if a photocopy with no stamp for notary is good, or if the certified letter with the photocopy, or maybe even go back to my notary and see if she'll stamp the photocopy. i just don't want to hold up the process any longer. thanks.

    I just send 1 copy with schedule "A", a copy of the notarized page, and form 1 or 4 in duplicate. Never had to leave original anywhere but my safe. But that might be a regional thing. (Im in Tx)

    I didn't send the ATF a complete copy of my trust. I sent the ATF a copy of the trust declaration.

    Let us know how that works out. I've "heard" that the ATF has requested the entire trust in cases like this.

    This. I have the original, ATF has a copy.

    This drives me nuts.

    EVERYONE who gives NFA trust commentary always talks about schedule A.

    Schedule A is a generic catch all term no different than "Appendix A" or "Exhibit A" - depending on how the trust is written, when you tell someone they need to send "schedule A" - you are PROBABLY telling them to send over a schedule of assets OR you could be telling them to send over a schedule of beneficiaries, alternate trustees in the event of persistent vegetative state or something irrelevant.

    A more accurate way to describe what is necessary to send is stating that ATF needs a COMPLETE trust copy to examine.

    I got my stamp.

    I sent them the declaration of trust; I did not send them the complete trust and I received my stamp.

    When did you get the stamp on this declaration of trust? What date did it get approved?

    Why are you registering your trust? They don't need to be. That's one of the reasons you go with a trust versus a LLC, S Corp, etc.
