1.31.7.3  (03-18-2009)
Background

  1. The Budget and Accounting Procedures Act of 1950, further amended in 2005 by the Federal Manager's Financial Integrity Act, assigned the heads of executive agencies the responsibility for establishing and maintaining adequate systems of accounting and internal controls.

  2. The accounting systems and associated internal controls should be designed to ensure compliance with administrative and legal requirements of the IRS, the Treasury Department, the Government Accountability Office(GAO), and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

1.31.7.3.1  (07-26-2011)
Accounting System

  1. RRACS provides accounting control for all revenue transactions. The database, located at the )Enterprise Computing Center/Martinsburg Computing Center (ECC/MCC), consists of general ledger accounts and a variety of internal records used for balancing and reporting.

1.31.7.3.1.1  (12-01-2003)
System Objectives

  1. The system was designed to meet the following Treasury Department objectives:

    1. Full disclosure of the financial results of operations through an orderly system of controlling and recording financial transactions on an accrual basis.

    2. Effective control over and accountability for funds, property and other assets, obligations, liabilities, expenditures, costs and revenues.

    3. Production of adequate and timely financial reports to meet the needs and objectives of internal management and to comply with external requirements.

    4. Production of reliable data for the bureau's budget, and for reporting to the Treasury Department, OMB and others.

    5. Coordination of accounting with the bureau's planning, programming, budgeting, and statistical reporting functions, including consistent classifications of data.

    6. Development of cost data for use in measuring results of operations and performance of functions.

    7. Compliance with statutory and Joint Financial Management Improvement Program core financial system requirements.

1.31.7.3.2  (12-01-2003)
Internal Controls

  1. Management has the responsibility for providing a system of internal accounting controls to ensure compliance with legal requirements and the practice of prudent financial management.

  2. Management can help achieve an adequate level of internal control by assigning operating responsibilities to individual employees, establishing employee training programs and incentives and rotations, and test checking transactions to the extent deemed essential.

  3. Controls must be integrated into daily operations to ensure that basic documents are accurate and transactions are entered correctly into the system. Internal accounting control has the following four basic elements:

    1. No one individual or group should have exclusive control over any transactions.

    2. Neither custodianship nor operating responsibilities should be confined to the person who is responsible for record keeping.

    3. Every internal check or accounting control must meet tests of practicality. It should not discourage employee responsibility, close the door on individual judgment, nor result in an added operating cost that is disproportionate to conceivable savings or risks.

    4. Internal controls should be maintained in a dynamic state. Periodically, existing controls should be reevaluated and if necessary, reconstructed in harmony with changing conditions. Reevaluation of internal controls is especially important in revenue accounting activities due to Tax System Modernization components under development.

  4. Adequate control in revenue accounting not only involves ensuring that all revenues are recorded but also provides an adequate basis for making sure the Government collects tax liabilities due. The revenue accrual basis of accounting aids in ensuring this result by establishing accounting control at the time revenues are collectible or received.

  5. The control over assets recorded in the general ledger accounts must ensure that these assets remain in the possession of the Government, that adequate measures are taken for their preservation, and that assets are not written off or otherwise disposed of without proper authorization and follow-up where appropriate.

1.31.7.3.2.1  (12-01-2003)
Internal Control Objectives

  1. The following are basic internal control objectives as defined by the GAO in "Standards for Internal Controls in the Federal Government " , (GAO/AIMD-00-21.3.1, November 1999). The internal controls should ensure:

    1. Effectiveness and efficiency of operations including the use of the entity's resources.

    2. Reliability of financial reporting, including reports on budget execution, financial statements, and other reports for internal and external use.

    3. Compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

1.31.7.3.2.2  (07-26-2011)
Internal Control Standards

  1. While management has the primary responsibility for providing a system of internal controls, all personnel have a responsibility for understanding and ensuring internal controls are functioning as intended.

  2. To assist the Revenue Systems and Analysis Section staff in carrying out internal control responsibilities, a condensed version of the key standards of internal control developed by the GAO follows:

    1. Documentation. The operation of the function, system or project is clearly described in writing. Documentation describes what goes in the system, how it is processed and what is to come out.

    2. Records of Transactions. Important events or transactions are promptly recorded and classified in accordance with documented procedures.

    3. Execution of Transactions. Events or transactions are authorized and executed only by persons with authority to do so.

    4. Separation of Duties. Key duties and responsibilities in authorizing, processing, recording, and reviewing transactions are separated among individuals.

    5. Supervision. Qualified supervision is provided.

    6. Competent Personnel. Managers and employees are knowledgeable, have professional integrity, and receive adequate training to do the work assigned to them.

    7. Accountability for Resources. Records are kept to show custody and use of resources. The records are periodically reviewed to determine reliability.

    8. Audit Resolution. Actions are taken for agreed to recommendations resulting from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), or GAO reviews.

  3. Each employee should review the above standards, apply them when possible, and take the following actions if appropriate:

    1. Make changes where possible or recommend the change to management if weaknesses are identified.

    2. Look for indicator of control weaknesses during Quality Improvement Projects.

    3. Include reviews or reports of employees, managers, TIGTA, and the GAO in determining the adequacy of controls.

    4. Look at the conclusions of any reviews or reports and consider how application of the internal control standards might correct an identified problem.

  4. To illustrate, internal controls used in RRACS include:

    1. The double entry system for general ledger accounts and periodic trial balances.

    2. The use of control accounts or memorandum records when prescribed to ensure the accuracy of subsidiary or individual records maintained in the operating units of the service.

    3. Follow up, by responsible supervisory personnel, of error situations, imperfections in operating methods, or changes in operations requiring alterations as a result of instructions from Headquarters or other IRS offices.

    4. The responsibilities HQ managers have for internal checks to meet special local conditions. All supervisory personnel are cautioned to avoid unnecessary duplicate and costly checking, verifying, and balancing accounting summaries with supporting documents.

1.31.7.3.3  (07-26-2011)
Government-Wide Accounting (GWA) Modernization

  1. The GWA Modernization project is an FMS effort to capture accounting transaction on a real-time basis, instead of a monthly basis. RFM has implemented the following efforts for the GWA modernization project:

    1. All RFM ALCs are GWA Reports for the IPAC system. All IPACs to the RFM ALC are sent to GWA real time and do not have to be reported on the SF224 at month end.

    2. HQ ALC (20096500) will use the GWA Re-classification Module to report all re-classes. The GWA reclassification module is a way to capture re-classes on a real time basis, instead of waiting for the end of the month. The reclassification module will replace the current SF224 process for HQ ALC (20096500).

1.31.7.3.4  (07-26-2011)
Government Accountability Office(GAO) Audit Assistance

  1. The annual financial audit by the GAO of IRS tax transactions will be made at the location where the operations are conducted and the accounting records maintained.

  2. Copies of End of Month Reconciliation; related original refund and check cancellation voucher schedules with any required supporting documents; Regional Finance Center (RFC) confirmation listings, etc. are to be retained in the files, in accordance with the GAO Manual. Separate files will be maintained, in accounting period order, of the refund disbursement and check cancellation schedules, and other documents relating to the End of Month Reconciliation as follows:

    1. Original paid refund schedules SF 1166, Optical Character Recognition (OCR), Voucher and Schedule of Payments.

    2. Original "accomplished" Refund Cancellation schedules SF 1098, Schedule of Cancelled Checks; SF 1184, Unavailable Check Cancellation; IPAC, Inter- Governmental Payment and Collection System and TFS 3813, Schedule of Undetectable Checks.

  3. The following additional records will be made available: Business Master File (BMF), Individual Master File (IMF), Custodial Account Data Engine (CADE) and Non Master File (NMF) Recaps of Assessments, Abatements, etc., Form 8485, Assessment Adjustment Case Record documents, and Form 2285, Concurrent Determinations of Deficiencies.

    Note:

    Both Forms 8485 and 2285 will be made available for selected restricted interest cases only, and taxpayer names will be obliterated or removed.

  4. Also, specific transcripts will be produced on request by GAO auditors for individual cases selected for verification of refund interest computation.

    Note:

    Taxpayer names must be obliterated or removed from transcripts prior to delivery to GAO.

RRACS Accounting Applications

  1. HQ staff accountants and accounting technicians input data to RRACS using the procedures described in the following subsections:

    1. IRM 1.31.7.4.1 describes the system and IRM 1.31.7.4.2 outlines the security rules.

    2. IRM 1.31.7.4.3 contains instructions for changing static tables in the system. Any changes made to the tables should be limited to a minimum number of employees to ensure that the tables reflect the latest and most accurate information.

    3. IRM 1.31.7.4.4 describes data entry procedures, research options, Month End Closing, Statement of Differences, and report generation. Enterprise Computing Center/ Martinsburg Computing Center (ECC/MCC) downloads are discussed in the remaining subsections.

1.31.7.4.1  (07-26-2011)
Description of System

  1. RRACS controls and reports all financial activities of the Service's Tax Processing System, including taxes owed, collected and refunded. This system maintains the Service's accountability, and it interacts and touches all of the processing, examination, and collection systems in the SPC.

  2. Taxpayer accounts are maintained in four separate systems depending on the type of tax and tax period. These are:

    1. Individual Master File (IMF) Accounts --Taxpayer accounts for Individuals.

    2. Business Master File (BMF) Accounts --Taxpayer accounts for businesses.

    3. Automated Non-Master File (ANMF) Accounts --Taxpayer accounts that have not been prescribed for entry into the master file records, but are processed in the IRS.

    4. Custodial Account Data Engine (CADE) File --Taxpayer accounts for certain types of Individuals.

  3. Each SPC is assigned revenue accounting responsibilities coinciding with its areas of administrative jurisdiction and legal accountability. The RRACS provides for the merging of computer output with manual operations to produce required records and reports. Each SPC maintains double entry ledger accounts covering the various revenue transactions, and provides for consolidated recording of assessments, collections, receivables, refunds, over-assessments, and other elements of revenue accounting.

  4. Reports include required data for each area office and SPC. Each general ledger account is numerically identified by a four-digit number. This number is used when referencing a general ledger account, both in procedural instructions and on reports or other forms.

  5. Periodically, financial reports are prepared or processed by the SPCs and the computing center, and furnished to the HQ Office and the Treasury Department's Financial Management Service (FMS) for use in publishing consolidated reports and for evaluating operations. The data for these reports are obtained from the general ledger, or are contained in computer generated or manual output relative to taxpayer accounts. The data provides the HQ Office with information pertinent to operational areas.

1.31.7.4.2  (07-26-2011)
System Security

  1. The following is a partial list of rules that apply to users of any computer system operated by the IRS, including RRACS (a complete list of security rules can be found in the Modernization Information Technology System (MITS) Security Policy and Standards document:

    1. All assigned passwords will be delivered to employees by Online 5081.

    2. Operator Identification Numbers (IDs) and entry codes must be protected and not revealed to anyone. The manager should be notified if there is a suspicion that a password, ID, or entry code have been compromised. All non-IDRS system generated generic passwords must be changed immediately.

    3. Passwords, operator ID, or entry codes should not be shared between employees.

    4. Only data required to accomplish official duties should be accessed.

    5. The screen should be cleared when work is completed.

    6. Sign off anytime when away from the terminal.

    7. Immediately retrieve all hard copy printouts generated.

    8. Do not disclose procedures or telephone numbers which permit system access from a remote location.

    9. Do not use personally owned hardware and software at the work site.

    10. Use only government issued equipment to execute official duties. Use only IRS authorized software.

    11. Observe all software license agreements. Do not make unauthorized copies of software.

    12. Do not use any public domain or shareware software on IRS computers test it on a system that does not process taxpayer or employee payroll data.

    13. Promptly report all security incidents/violations to a supervisor.

  2. Users are not to disclose or discuss any IRS related information with unauthorized individuals. The Privacy Act of 1974, 5 USC 552A (B.) prohibits the unauthorized disclosure of information from systems of records pertaining to individuals. The statute provides criminal sanctions under the Privacy Act. A person making a willful unauthorized disclosure of information covered by the Privacy Act may be charged with a misdemeanor and subject to a fine of up to $5,000.00.

  3. Users will be asked to sign a statement that they will follow the above rules carefully to protect the integrity, confidentiality and availability of all IRS data.

  4. RRACS creates an audit trail of all activity in the System so that a user's individual actions can be traced and (if necessary) recreated. Some elements of the audit trail will occur on the workstation and some will occur on the Local Area Network (LAN) and Mainframe components.

  5. RRACS uses the OS/2 "LOCKUP" utility to control initial access to the RRACS applications. Lockup requires a password to gain access to the system.

  6. To enter/re-enter the system from this "lockup" screen, enter the system password and press return. Contact the system administrator if unable to enter/re-enter the system.

  7. Each personal ID is recorded with all logon and logoff attempts and is retained as an audit trail on all posting activity.

1.31.7.4.3  (07-26-2011)
Maintenance Windows

  1. Occasionally, RRACS will change the business rule using the Maintenance Window due to processing changes, new legislation and modernization of feeder systems.

1.31.7.4.4.1  (12-01-2003)
General Procedures

  1. Data Entry Rules, Windows Hierarchy, General Steps, Menu Options, and Other Options are discussed in the following subsections.

1.31.7.4.4.1.1  (07-26-2011)
Data Entry Rules

  1. There are a few "ground rules" that are true for many input windows. Rather than repeat them in every instance, the operator should learn these basics before starting data entry.

    1. The Account Period is a mandatory selection for most journals. From the Main Menu, accept the highlighted current month or select the future month.

    2. The Prepared Date should be entered using the (07-26-2011) format with numbers and hyphens. Do not omit leading zeros.

    3. The decimal point needs to be included if cents are present in money amounts.

    4. The tab or mouse is used to move from one entry field to another entry field.

    5. The OK button is used to retain entries in a dialog box.

    6. The Post button is used to validate all fields or selected fields within the window and post to the database.

    7. The shift and the tab key should be held simultaneously to move the cursor backward to the prior input field.

    8. The system date and time are displayed on the window in the upper right hand corner. Neither of these can be changed.

    9. All entry fields are surrounded by borders except for read only or calculated fields.

    10. Originating source (Deposit Windows) can not be changed using Edit.

    11. Minus signs are not allowed on the windows. See the Data Base Administrator (DBA) if something was entered in error.

    12. The numbers on the alpha keyboard can be used. However, the 10-key numeric arrangement usually provides better accuracy for numbers.

    13. Message lines are included on Maintain Transaction Window. Use message for additional information to identify a record as part of the audit trail.

    14. All fields do not have validity checks to ensure correct entry. Some fields that do not have checks may be very important to the audit trail and may be used to identify a record. It is important to enter "DOC IDs " , "Type Code" , " Assessment Dates " , etc., correctly before posting them to the database.

    15. The journal number should always be transcribed onto the source document as soon as it appears on the screen. It is an important part of the audit trail.

    16. The Refresh button from the action bar is used to clear the window and start over.

    17. The Help button in the action bar is used to secure " help" information.

    18. When the RRACS Sub Menu has items listed in the record area followed by an ellipse (…), the system will go directly to the RRACS Intermediate Window.

    19. Anytime there is a document for Public Debt, a State must be selected.

    20. Information entered on the Maintain Journal Entry window will appear as a journal entry on the Maintain Source Journal window.

    21. When asterisks are present in the Ledger Classification Account, select the Display Account button for journal transaction details.

    22. When scrolling to select a Ledger Classification account, debit accounts are listed in numeric order, followed by the credit accounts.

1.31.7.4.4.1.2  (07-26-2011)
