    Do I need to contact ATF if I moved to the new address? I search their website and nothing pointing out that I need to contact ATF. TIA

    If it is an instate move there is no legal requirement. If you want to though, fill out a Form 5320.20, checking "No" in box 2.

    An out of state move, whether permanent or temporary, requires an approved Form 5320.20 before crossing state lines. The form is not required for silencers but it might be helpful if you have to deal with LE in the destination state.

    For a temporary interstate move, you can fill out the dates in box 3 up to a year apart so you can make several trips on the same form, such as 01Feb2012 to 31Jan2013.

    Yup I saw that form but I think it for out of state too. I am moving within the same state :)

    there is no law or regulation at the federal level in respect to intrastate moves. however, note that the Form requests this but it's not supported by law. there may be at the local level so be sure you double check state/county/city laws.

    A 5320-20 is not required for AOW or silencers thought.

    I moved from Or to Wa and filled out the form 5320.20 and got a signed copy back before the move from ATF. I moved back to Or from Wa and got the same thing. When I moved within Or and filled out the form, I got nothing, no response at all from ATF. Hopefully I'm legal, but I dunno?

    As has been said above, there is no legal requirement to notify when moving within the same state.
