TTB ACCEPTS OFFER IN COMPROMISE FOR ALLEGED FIREARMS TAX VIOLATIONS
We recently accepted a $1,600,000 Offer in Compromise (OIC) from Diamondback Firearms, LLC, to resolve alleged violations of the Internal Revenue Code. This OIC is the result of a TTB investigation that revealed that Diamondback Firearms, LLC, allegedly did not pay excise tax due on firearms that it sold.

IMPORTANT TIP: ALWAYS USE THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF TTB FORMS
If you file hard copies of any TTB forms, please make sure you always use the current version of the form, which you can find on the TTB Forms page at TTB.gov/. We may return any form not submitted on a current approved form, which may delay processing.
How can you tell at a glance if you are using the current version? In the bottom left corner of all TTB forms, you'll find the form number as well as a date. The form number and date must match the current version posted on the TTB Forms page. If the form that you are using does not match the current version on the TTB Forms page, then discard the old version and print or download the current version of the form.
We encourage you to check the TTB Forms page frequently to check for updated versions of TTB forms. You can bookmark the pages of your most frequently used forms so that you always have the latest version.
