2.3.28.1  (01-01-2012)
Overview of Command Code FTDPN

  1. Command Code FTDPN is used by IRS employees as a calculator for manually computing FTD penalty.

  2. A tabbing feature is available within the command code which enables the user to go from field to field without having to space over each position.

  3. Command Code FTDPN will now allow computation of FTD penalty on liabilities between 100,000.00 and 99,999,999.99 for tax periods 199303 and subsequent.

  4. For tax periods 199303 and subsequent, CC FTDPN will now allow the user the option of altering credits for the purposes of FTD penalty computation. A credits screen, after the liability screen on the computation, will display the credits from the tax module. The user may alter the amounts, the dates of the transactions and the transaction codes. A new computation will be displayed computing FTD penalty with the new credits. The program will combine like transaction codes dated the same day.

  5. For tax periods 199303 and subsequent, CC FTDPN will allow the user the option of changing the BASE-PERIOD-CD and the STATE-CD for computation purposes via FTDPNA and FTDPNB screens. FTD penalty will be computed under the deposit requirements of the altered BASE-PERIOD-CD and consider the holidays of the new STATE-CD.

  6. For tax periods 199303 and subsequent, federal and local state holidays will not be considered banking days in computing FTD penalty.

  7. Only federal holidays will not be considered business days when computing FTD.

  8. The liability and credit sreens you will be able to enter amounts larger than 99,999,999.99 with one significant decimal point (Example 199,999,999.9). Note: Due to space limitations when displaying liabilities and credits greater than 99,999,999.99 there will only be one decimal place displayed.

  9. The averaging of liabilities will now be able to handle up to 999,999,999.99.

2.3.28.2  (01-01-2007)
CC FTDPN with a definer A

  1. Command Code FTDPN with a definer of A, will result in an FTDPNB input screen display format.

    1. The user then inputs the period liabilities and debit amounts for the specific tax module.

    2. the TIN, MFT and TAX PERIOD do not need to be entered if the prior command code was TXMOD.

    3. For tax periods prior to 199212, if a quarter liability amount is input (for averaging) it is divided by 12, rounded, and displayed on Page 2 of FTDPNB output at period letters B, D, F, H, J, L, N, P, R, T, V, and X.

    4. When in a MONTHLY deposit status and there is no line 20 money amounts, but there is a schedule B, then accumulate each month's money amounts and make the due date of each month's total the 15th of the following month.

    5. when in a SEMI-WEEKLY deposit status and there is line 20 money amounts, but no schedule B, then divide each of the three money amounts by four and place the result in the first four Wednesdays of each month and compute the penalty.

    6. Fields may also be changed and re-entered using FTDPNB.

2.3.28.2.1  (01-01-2007)
Average Liability Amount

  1. For tax periods after 199212 and the liability is to be averaged, and there is no valid schedule B or line 20 money amounts on the return:

    1. For Form 941, a SEMI-WEEKLY depositor, the total tax amount is divided by 12 with the result displayed on the first four Wednesdays of each month. For Form 943 and Form 945, a SEMI-WEEKLY depositor, the total tax amount is divided by 48 with the result displayed on the first four Wednesdays of each month.

    2. For a MONTHLY depositor, divide the total tax amount by 3 and set monthly due dates for Form 941 and divide the total tax amount by 12 and set monthly due dates for Form 943 and Form 945.

2.3.28.3  (01-01-2007)
CC FTDPN with a definer Blank

  1. Command Code FTDPN with a blank definer will result in a multiple screen FTDPNB response. These screens display the liabilities from the posted return on the TIF and the FTD penalty computation calculated by the command code. This eliminates the need to manually input the liabilities. If the user wishes to change any of these liabilities, the entry code must be entered either by keying down to an unused line or by keying to the right of the required data on the last significant line. The program will then re-compute the FTD penalty based on the new liability amounts. When overlaying the liabilities, the user has the option of either right or left justifying the liability amounts.

2.3.28.4  (01-01-2007)
CC FTDPN with a definer G

  1. CC FTDPN with definer "G" is used to allow User(s) to compute Form 941, Form 943, Form 945, Form 940, Form CT-1, Form 1042, and Form 944. Generic Account. Authorized User(s) does not need any account on TIF Data Base to compute FTD penalty. IF CC FTDPN with "G" definer is input correctly, a new literal " GENERIC ACCOUNT:" on the 2nd line of the FTDPNB Liability and Credit Screens will be displayed. This will remind user(s) that the CC FTDPN is using a Generic Account and all liabilities and credits will need to be keyed in for computation.

2.3.28.5  (01-01-2008)
CP 568 FTD Notice

  1. For tax periods 199303 and subsequent, CC FTDPN will have an option that allows user to request an FTD Letter. (Please refer to the Users Guide for the CP 568 FTD Notice Requests through IDRS CC FTDPN.)

  2. For tax periods 199303 and subsequent, CC FTDPN will now allow users the option to review or view CP568 letter request on the screen before deciding to print. CC FTDPN will also display a new informational screen every time users request a letter. This screen lists all Paragraph Codes available when generating a CP568 Letter. In addition, new Paragraph Codes (211 and 212) have been added. Paragraph Code 211, allows users to create an open text on cover letter while Paragraph 212, creates an open text as part of the explanation pages. Once a user inputs one of these Paragraph Codes, an FTDPNB Text Screen is displayed. This screen will allow users to input up to 15 lines of open text exactly as it appears on the letter. Note, the open text can also be viewed as part of the letter via on-line view function. Note: This review function can be only applied for Form 941. Start from tax period 200612, CC FTDPN for Form 945 and start from tax period 200812 for Form 944 will allow users the option to review or view CP568 letter request on the screen before deciding to print. Once a user input View function on the view page, the standard paragraph and all explanation pages will be displayed on the screen. The user then can select the paragraph code to print on the letter.

  1. If Command Code FTDPN with definer A is input correctly, the format for FTDPNB will be generated.

  2. Command Code FTDPN with definer C is for FIFO computation for tax period greater than 200112. If there is mismatch between Master file and IDRS, then a warning message will be printed: 'Warning: Use Definer C for FIFO Computation'. If the FTD Penalty excess $250. A warning message will be printed: 'Warning: FTD Penalty excess $250.00 for FIFO, use most-recent method'.

  3. If command Code FTDPN (no definer) is input correctly, FTDPNB will be displayed along with the period liability amounts from the posted return. It will also display the FTD penalty computation based on the liabilities on the posted return and its associated debits.

  4. If the Safe Haven Rule condition is encountered when processing a tax module, a warning message will be generated in inverse video at the bottom of the last FTDPN output screen for tax periods 199212 and earlier. This message will read:

FTD Penalty Amendments, per RIS TPS50038:
Amendment #1.
*NOTE: Starting Tax Year 199712, for Form 941, Form 943, and Form 945, CC FTDPNB Credit Screen will be displaying a new Electronic Deposit Year indicator in the second Iine starting at position 69 to 72 (YYYY). This applies to mandated Taxpayers required to deposit using the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) or those Taxpayers mandated in 1995 and 1996 thru TAXLINK System. In addition, the literal "TC" on the fifth line had been changed to "TC/E" , where "E" signifies EFTPS or TAXLINK deposit. All credit transactions (NNN) that carries the Electronic Payment Indicator (EFTPS-ELEC-DPST-IND) or TAXLINK File Location Code (FLC) will be displayed on the Credit Screen with this new format " NNNE" , ex., 650E. Regular coupon deposits or Non-EFTPS deposits, if MANDATED account; will be displayed on the Credit Screen as " NNN" , space after the "NNN" means a coupon or NON-EFTPS deposit. Command Code FTDPN can now accept EFTPS or TAXLINK Credit Transaction on the FTDPNB CREDIT screen by inputting this new format "NNNE " , such as TRANS-CODE (650E/670E). This transaction will be considered an Electronic deposit when CC FTDPN re-computes the FTD penalty.
*NOTE: The Indicator Year will indicate the tax year a Taxpayer is mandated to start using the EFTPS. Once a Taxpayer is mandated to deposit thru EFTPS, CC FTDPN will start monitoring the presence of the Electronic Payment Indicator on every deposit (TC's) when determining whether the EFTPS avoidance penalty applies. This new indicator (EFTPS-ELEC-DPST-IND) will be part of the posted (TIF62) and pending (TIF63) records using these format codes 01, 11, 13 and 47.
Amendment #2.
*NOTE: Starting Tax Year 1997, all EFTPS Payment Transactions (TC 610/640/660/670) that carry an Electronic Payment Indicator (EFTPS-ELEC-DPST-IND) will be treated as a good FTD credit (TC 650) not subject to a 10% payment avoidance penalty.
Amendment #3.
*NOTE: For FTD deposits made on MFT 01/11/16 tax modules with 199612/199703/199706/199709/199712 tax periods, the following penalty-waiver rules apply for FTD deposits dated between January 1 to September 30, 1997. For purposes of this penalty waiver, CC FTDPN will now recognized Financial Agent (FA) Enrollment Code and Mandated Tax Year as two types of indicators as a part of the criteria for allowing the EFTPS waiver.
    CC FTDPN will now display a literal "E" in position 68 in the first line of the FTDPNB CREDIT SCREEN, if a Taxpayer is considered as ENROLLED or the Financial Agent (FA) Code is set by the Banks.
EFTPS Avoidance Penalty Criteria:
1. For FTD deposits dated between Jan. 01, to December 31, 1997 (inclusive):
  * FTD, EFT Avoidance Penalty will NOT be assessed on taxpayers who were mandated to start depositing Electronically in Jan. 1997. This penalty will still be applied to 1995/1996 EFT-Mandated Taxpayers.
Late Deposit Penalty Criteria:
1. For FTD Deposits dated between Jan. 1, to Sept. 30, 1997 (inclusive):
  * FTD Late Penalty will NOT be assessed on any Taxpayer who deposits Electronically.
  * FTD Late Penalty will NOT be assessed on any Taxpayer who has deposited by regular coupon if his FA indicator is set (i.e., he has ENROLLED EFTPS or Electronic Payment Indicator = 1 on the TC650).
Amendment #4. Extends the EFTPS Avoidance Penalty Criteria of Amendment #3.
EFTPS Avoidance Penalty Criteria:
1. For FTD deposits dated between July 01, 1997 to December 31, 1997:
  * Penalty will NOT be assessed on taxpayers who were mandated to start depositing Electronically in Jan. 1997. This penalty will still be applied to 1995/1996 EFF-Mandated Taxpayers.
Amendment #5. Extends the EFTPS Avoidance Penalty Criteria of Amendment 4 and Late Deposit Penalty Criteria of Amendment #3.
EFTPS Avoidance Penalty Criteria:
1. For FTD deposits dated from December 31, 1997 to June 30, 1998:
  * Penalty will NOT be assessed on taxpayers who were mandated to start depositing Electronically in Jan. 1997 and 1998. This penalty will still be applied to 1995/1996 EFT-Mandated Taxpayers.
Late Deposit Penalty Criteria:
1. For FTD Deposits dated from Oct. 1, 1997 to December 30, 1997 (inclusive):
  * FTD Late Penalty will NOT be assessed on 1997 Mandated Taxpayers enrolled in or volunteering to use EFTPS.

Command Code FTDPN Application Indicators

The following are the values and meanings for the Explanation Code(s) displayed on the screen: (Only for tax periods 199106 and later)

EXPL CODE TEXT
01 The undeposited taxes are less than or equal to 5% of the tax liability for this eighth-monthly period. The remaining undeposited taxes are due with the first deposit required after the 15th of the following month.
02 The undeposited taxes are less than or equal to 5% of the tax liability for this eighth-monthly period. The remaining undeposited taxes are due at the end of the following month.
03 Your payment is penalized 10% because you did not deposit your money with an authorized financial institution or a Federal Reserve Bank or branch that serves your area.
04 The applied credit was timely and not penalized.
05 The undeposited taxes are less than or equal to 2% of the tax liability or $100.00 of the tax liability, whichever is greater. The remaining undeposited taxes are due the first Wednesday or Friday on or after the 15th of the following month.
06 The undeposited taxes are less than or equal to 2% of the tax liability or $100.00 of the tax liability, whichever is greater. The remaining undeposited taxes are due at RDD.
07 This SHORT-FALL amount is carried forward and due with the return.
08 This SHORT-FALL amount is carried forward and due on the first Wednesday or Friday on or after the 15th of the following month.
09 This due date was determined from using a STATE or FEDERAL holiday in the computation
10 Your Deposit or Credit was penalized 10% because you did not deposit your money thru ELECTRONIC FUNDS TRANSFER (EFT).
11 Your Credit was posted as a Payment Transaction (TC 610/640/660/670) and was deposited using the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS). The transaction carries an Electronic Payment Indicator (EFTPS-ELEC-DPST-IND) and this will be treated as a good FTD deposit, not subject to 10% payment avoidance penalty. (Per, RIS50038: Amendment #2)
12 Your late Deposit or Credit was dated between Jan. 01 to Sept. 30 1997 and was made Electronically. This FTD Deposit will not be assessed for late FTD penalty. (Per. RIS50038: Amendment #3)
13 Your late coupon deposit was dated between Jan. 1 to Sept 30 1997 and will not be assessed for late FTD penalty because we considered you as an ENROLLED EFTPS (Financial Agent is set) or one of your deposits was made Electronically (Electronic Payment Indicator = 1 on the TC650). (Amendment #3)
14 The Net Return Liability (Lesser of Total Tax Settlement of Tax Per Taxpayer) is $2500 or less you are computing. Due to this, your deposit or credit can also be made as a check (to the IRS) for the full amount with your return without incurring FTD (Failure to Deposit) penalty. Starting Tax Periods 200103 and subsequent for Form 941/Form 943/Form 945 the "DeMinimus Rule " of $1000 or less was changed to $2500 or less. Command Codes PIFTD and FTDPN will now display Explanation Code 14 for information purposes only. This will inform users that their computation falls under the " DeMinimus Rule" . Per RIS# EXM-00049
15 The new Intended Payment Data (IPD) information found in the credit (TC650/660) was used in computing the FTD late deposit penalty. Starting ONLY in Tax Period 200003 and subsequent, Command Codes FTDPN and PIFTD) will be recognizing the presence of the Intended Payment Data (IPD) field in determining FTD late deposit penalty. PIFTD will use this date information for computing or recomputing the penalty. This new IPD date field will be found on TIF62 and TIF63, using format codes 11, 13 and 43. Per. ETA90036.
16 The credit or TC650 used to satisfy the Liability Amount was a designated credit input by the user in the FTDPNB credit screen.
17 Denotes that the presence of TC971 AC260 on the TAX MODULE and any FTD, penalties incurred, whether late FTD penalties (TC650) or Avoidance penalties (TC610, TC670) will be given Y2K FTD penalty relief, per RIS EXM00010A. This RIS provides Taxpayers who called and reported Y2K problem penalty relief. Only those taxpayers who have FTD penalties (late penalty and/or avoidance penalty) will be given penalty relief.
18 Denotes That changing liability payment schedule (Monthly to Semi-Weekly, Semi-weekly to Daily, Monthly to Monthly/Daily/Semi-weekly and vice Versa) will be given FTD penalty relief whether Late FTD penalties (TC650) or Avoidance penalties(TC610, TC670). Per RIS #EXM-00051
19 FTD penalty relief for Disaster. For any FTD deposit that is due within the disaster window, then extend the liability due date of that deposit to either 15 calendar days for the original due date of to Disaster Due Date - whichever date is earlier. If this new liability due date falls on a Fed/State holiday, then make the liability due date the next business day.
20 Indicates that the payment is a non-EFTPS credit transfer payment and the 10% avoidance penalty was not imposed. Note:Payment was moved in from another module. FTDPN cannot determine if the payment was an EFTPS payment. Verify whether or not the TP is liable for the 10% failure to use the EFTPS system penalty. When transferring a non-EFTPS payment into a required TP account, masterfile will NOT assess the avoidance penalty. A manual TC 180 will need to be assessed at the time of the credit transfer, or masterfile will waive the avoidance penalty.
21 For form 944, if the total liability for the quarter is less than $2,500, then sum the quarterly liability amount. Per EXM60048a00
22 Start from 201003, the new Safe Harbor rule for MFT 01 will be applied if:
1. Current-posting form 941's Total settlement is equal to or larger than $2,500
2. No next-day deposit obligation: and
3. Prior-Quarter-Indicator = 1 (amount in the immediately-prior quarter Form 941 is less than $2,500, or there is no return posted in the immediately prior quarter) Per Ris EXM090644
23 Avoidance penalty was waived for TC 670 payments between 1/1/2011 and 2-18-2011 posting for tax periods ending 201012 thru tax periods ending 201112 and there is no EFT-YR present.
24 Deposit due date was extended 3 additional business days from the normal deposit due date when there is no EFT-YR present and the normal deposit due date is dated between Jan thru May of 2011.

PARA CODE TEXT
011 - (Reasonable cause (cover page))012 - (Reasonable cause (expl-pages)) If you believe you have a reasonable cause for not making the deposits, please explain at the end of this letter and return it by August 30, 2004. A company officer or other authorized representative must sign the statement. The IRS will remove a penalty, or any portion of a penalty, if it is the result of written advice from the IRS. However, there are two conditions: you must have provided adequate and accurate information when you requested the advice and advice must have been given in response to a specific written request.
020 - (Penalty for late deposit) We charged a penalty because, according to our records you did not make your tax deposit on time or in the correct amount.Form 944: For employers who are in the Employers' Annual Federal Tax Program (Form 944) whose tax liability for the year equals or exceeds $2,500 but those employment tax liability for a quarter of the year is deminimis (less than $2,500) will be deemed to have timely deposited the employment taxes due for that quarter if you fully deposit the employment taxes accumulated during that quarter by the last day of the month following the close of that quarter. Employment taxes accumulated for less than $2,500 during the fourth quarter can be either deposited by January 31 or remitted with a timely filed return for the return period.
023 (Penalty Waived) We waived the 10 percent penalty for the deposit not made by EFTPS.
030 - ( all penalty rates/days late) The amount of the penalty is determined by how late the deposit was made. In addition, credits are applied to the most recent period or periods within the specified tax period to which the credit relates. Your penalty rate is figured as follows: 2 percent for deposits made 1 to 5 days late. 5 percent for deposits made 6 to 15 days late. 10 percent for deposits made 16 or more days late, but within 10 days of the date of the first notice we sent you asking for the tax due. 15 percent for amounts still unpaid more than 10 days after the date of the first notice we sent you asking for tax due. 10 percent for deposits made at unauthorized financial institutions. 10 percent avoidance penalty for deposits not made through EFTPS as required by law.
After 12/31/2010 the paragraph will read
The amount of the penalty is determined by how late the deposit was made. In addition, credits are applied to the most recent period or periods within the specified tax period to which the credit relates. Your penalty rate is figured as follows: 2 percent for deposits made 1 to 5 days late. 5 percent for deposits made 6 to 15 days late. 10 percent for deposits made 16 or more days late, but within 10 days of the date of the first notice we sent you asking for the tax due. 15 percent for amounts still unpaid more than 10 days after the date of the first notice we sent you asking for tax due. 10 percent avoidance penalty for deposits not made through EFTPS.

032 - 5% (6 to 15 days late) The amount of the penalty is determined by how late the deposit was made. In addition credits are applied to the most recent period or periods within the specified tax period to which the credit relates. Your penalty rate is figured at a 5 percent for deposits made 6 to 15 days late.
033 - 10% (16 or more days late) The amount of the penalty is determined by how late the deposit was made. In addition credits are applied to the most recent period or periods within the specified tax period to which the credit relates.

240 - No penalty due, within tolerance Dear Taxpayer; Thank you for your reply, dated mm dd, yyyy to our letter proposing a federal tax deposit penalty on your Form 941/Form 945/Form 944 for the period ending mm dd, yyyy. Based on the information you provided we have determined that no penalty is due.
036 - 10% (avoidance or EFT compliance) The amount of the penalty is determined by how late the deposit was made. In addition credits are applied to the most recent period or periods within the specified tax period to which the credit relates. Your penalty rate is figured at 10 percent avoidance penalty for deposits not made through EFTPS as required by law.
040 - 10% (unauthorized deposit) The penalty was charged because, according to our records, you paid your taxes to an unauthorized financial institution, directly to the IRS, or with your return. The penalty is 10 percent of each payment not properly deposited. There is a limit to the amount of tax you may pay with your return. On the Form 941/Form 945 series/Form 944, if your total accumulated taxes for the return period are less than $2500, you may pay this amount with your return.
After 12/31/2010 the paragraph for quarterly returns will read
The penalty was charged because, according to our records, you paid your taxes to an unauthorized financial institution, directly to the IRS, or with your return. The penalty is 10 percent of each payment not deposited electronically through the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS). There is a limit to the amount of tax you may pay with your return. On the Form 941 series, you can pay your total Form 941 tax liability when you timely file the form if both:
* Your total Form 941 tax liability for either the quarter or the preceding quarter or the preceding quarter is less than $2,500 , and
* You did not incur a $100,000 next day deposit obligation during the quarter.
After 12/31/2010 the paragraph for annual returns will read
The penalty was charged because, according to our records, you paid your taxes directly to the IRS, or with your return. The penalty is 10 percent of each payment not deposited electronically through the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS). There is a limit to the amount of tax you may pay with your return. If your total accumulated taxes for the return period are less than $2500, you may pay this amount with your return.
050 - Averaging Total Tax Liability We charged a penalty because we could not determine if your deposits were made timely or in sufficient amounts. We arrived at this conclusion because your record of Federal Tax Liability was incomplete or illegible, or the liability amounts you reported did not equal the net taxes for the tax period. Therefore, we averaged the total tax liability (reported on Form 944) and distributed it equally throughout the tax period. We applied your deposits and payments to the averaged liabilities in the date order we received your deposits. We figured the penalty on any tax not deposited on time or in the correct amount.
060 - Deposit (s) applied in date order We applied your deposits and payments in the date order we received them. We used your Record of Federal Tax Liability to determine where to apply your deposits. We figured the penalty on any tax not deposited, deposited late, or not deposited in the correct amounts.
070 - Send Form 945-A/ Send Schedule B If you believe we computed the penalty incorrectly, please send us a complete breakdown of your tax liability by filling in Form 945-A/ schedule B (Annual Record of Federal Tax Liability ) for tax years 1993 and later.Form 944: If you believe we computed the penalty incorrectly, please send us a complete breakdown of your Form 944 tax liability by filling in Form 945-A, Annual Record of Federal Tax Liability.
080 - Semi-weekly, send schedule B Our records show you are a semi-weekly depositor but your Form 945-A Annual Record of Federal Tax Liability , Schedule B, Employers Record of Federal Tax Liability, did not have enough information on it for us to determine if you made your deposits on time or in the correct amounts.Our records show you are a semi-weekly depositor for Form 944, but your Form 945-A,Annual Record of Federal Tax Liability , did not have enough information on it for us to determine if you made your deposits on time or in the correct amounts.
090 - Monthly, send schedule B Our records show you are a monthly depositor but your Monthly Summary of Federal Tax Liability did not have enough information on it for us to determine if you made deposits on time or in the correct amounts.
100 - Explains Semi-weekly rule Our records indicate that you are a semi-weekly depositor. You should be following the semi-weekly deposit schedule because your total Form 945/Form 941 - tax liability in your look back period was more than $50,000. Therefore, your deposits should be made according to the following schedule: If you pay wages on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday the Deposit is due by the following Wednesday. If you pay wages on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday, the Deposit is due by the following Friday.
110 - Explains Monthly rule Our records indicate that you are a monthly depositor. You should be following the monthly deposits schedule because your total Form 945/employment tax liability in your look back period was $50,000 or less. For liabilities accumulated within any one monthly period, your deposit is due the first banking day on or after the 15th of the following month.
120 - $100,000 one day requirement If, during any month, your accumulated Federal Taxed reach $100,000 or more, you must make a deposit on the next banking day. This one-day deposit requirement overrides any other deposit rule. For the remainder of the year you must follow the semi-weekly deposit schedule.
130 - $100,000 on Monthly Your requirements changed from monthly to semi-weekly, Monthly depositors who reach a liability of $100,000 or more within any one month immediately become semi-weekly depositors for the remainder of the current year and for the following calendar year.
140 - Lookback period rule Your deposit schedule for the calendar year is determined from the total taxes in a four quarter/Form 945 taxes in the lookback period. The lookback period is the second calendar year preceding the current calendar year. For example: the lookback period for the year 2000 is 1998.Form 944: Your deposit schedule for the calendar year is determined from the total Form 944 taxes reported in the look back period. The look back period is the second calendar year preceding the current calendar year. For example: the look back period for the year 2008 is 2006.
151- Safe Harbor, Monthly The regulations provide a safe harbor exception for any deposit where unusual or unforeseen circumstances prevent you from timely depositing 100% of your liability. If you deposit at least 98% of your tax liability by the deposit due date, and the shortfall does not exceed the greater of $100 or 2 percent of the required deposit, you have met the deposit requirement for that liability. For a monthly depositor, any shortfall amount must be remitted or deposited by the return due dates.
152 - Safe Harbor, Semi-weekly The regulations provide a safe harbor exception for any deposit where unusual or unforeseen circumstances prevent you form timely depositing 100% of your liability. If you deposit at least 98% of your tax liability by the deposit due date, and the shortfall does not exceed the greater of $100 or 2 percent of the required deposit, you have met the deposit requirement for that liability.
170 - Deposit (s) not immediate credit We charged you with the penalty for not making federal tax deposits on time because your deposit was not considered an immediate credit item by your bank. Each Federal Reserve Bank has its own guidelines for what it considers an immediate credit item. Therefore, you should contact the Treasury Tax and Loan or Federal Tax Department at your bank to resolve any difference between the date stamped on your receipt and the date your check was cancelled.
181- In future complete Monthly ROFT In the future, please complete all applicable entries in the Form 945-A (Annual Record of Federal Tax Liability) / in the Record of Federal Tax Liabilities section of your tax return on the Monthly Summary of Federal Tax Liability. Show the amount of tax liability (not the deposit amount) for each period in which you paid wages to employees.
182 - In future complete schedule B In the future, please complete all applicable entries in the Form 945-A (Annual Record of Federal Tax Liability) / in the Record of Federal Tax Liabilities section of your tax return on the Form 941 Schedule B (Employers Records of Federal Tax Liability).

Form 944: In the future, please complete and include with your Form 944 the Form 945-A, Annual Record of Federal Tax Liability. Show the amount of tax liability (not the deposit amount) for each period in which you paid wages to employees.
190 - Not consider immediate credit Apparently, your deposit was processed under normal Federal Reserve Bank procedures. However, the bank did not consider your deposit (s) an immediate credit item. When this is the case, we must charge you the penalty for not making federal tax deposits. Your bank can explain which checks it considers immediate credit items.
200 - Review schedule records The schedule you provided indicates you are reporting wages for the pay period in which they are earned, rather than the date they are actually paid. This situation will cause your deposits to appear late. Please review your records, and if this is the case, please complete and return the enclosed Form 945-A, Annual record of Federal Tax Liabilities/Form 941, Schedule B, Employers Record of Federal Tax Liabilities.

230 - Explanations RRA 98 3304 (a) & (b) Our records indicate that you were issued a notice for the tax period ending mm dd, yyyy, That included a Federal Tax Deposit (FTD) penalty assessment for late paid deposits. The Internal Revenue Service Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 (RRA 98) Section 3304 (a) and (b) allow you provisions for decreasing an FTD penalty assessment related to deposits required after January 18, 1999. The notice issued included an FTD penalty computed under section 3304 (c) where deposits are applied to the most recent period or periods within the specified tax period to which the deposit relates. The IRS issued Revenue procedure 99-10 that allows taxpayers to designate the application of federal tax deposit for a particular return period, in order to minimize the FTD penalty under section 6656. The procedure applies to deposits required after January 18, 1999. Section 3304 (a) allows taxpayers 90 days from the date of the penalty notice to contact the IRS and designate the deposit period or periods within a tax return period to which the deposits of tax are to be applied. The IRS will adjust the penalties and notify you of the new penalty amount in writing. Section 6656 of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) provides that in the case of any failure by any person to deposit (as required by the IRC or regulations) on the date prescribed any amount of tax in a government depository, there will be imposed upon such person a penalty equal to the applicable percentage of the amount of the underpayment, unless it is shown that such failure is due to reasonable cause and not due to willful neglect. The penalty ranges from 2 to 15 percent depending upon the lateness of the deposit. Section 6656 (c) (2) (B) provides a waiver after the taxpayer is required to change the frequency of their deposits. The penalty relief is allowed provided you meet the net worth requirement ($2,000,000 or less for individuals, $7,000,000 or less for any owner or an unincorporated business, any partnership, corporation, association, unit of local government, or organization) and file a timely employment tax return. The relief provided by Section 6656 (c) (2) (B) is effective for deposits required after January 18, 1999. If you qualify for relief under either of these sections, please return this letter with your supporting information, or call the telephone number shown above for assistance. We apologize for the delay in notifying you of this penalty relief provision.
