Introduction to IDRS Command Code MFTRA

  1. IDRS Command Code MFTRA is used to request taxpayer information in the form of hardcopy transcripts. These requests are forwarded to the MF at the Enterprise Computing Center - Martinsburg (ECC-MTB). After the information is extracted from the MF it is passed to the Service Campuses where the Transcript Research System (TRS) processes the data and formats the transcripts. These transcripts are then printed at the Service Campus or the Remote Office of the requestor. MFTRD/ACTRA display functionality was removed in January 2003.

  2. As of January 2012, CADE 2 is used along with cycle element data to indicate the day of week in the cycle when an activity took place such as the processing day for an extract, when a notice was generated, a status was updated, etc. Subsequent values:

    00 N/A
    08 Indicates weekly processing only; no daily posting.
    01 Indicates IMF/CADE2 day 01 (Friday) posting.
    02 Indicates IMF/CADE2 day 02 (Monday) posting.
    03 Indicates IMF/CADE2 day 03 (Tuesday) posting.
    04 Indicates IMF/CADE2 day 04 (Wednesday) posting.
    05 Indicates IMF/CADE2 day 05 (Thursday) posting.

2.3.32.2  (07-01-2008)
Overview of Master File Extraction Process - Obsolete Effective 07/2008

  1. Transcript requests are fulfilled by several systems. The Microfilm Replacement System (MRS) is an automated research system that replaces most of the microfilm research for tax data in the Service Campuses and Remote Offices. MRS replaces the Taxpayer Name Directories with the Key Index File. The IMF and BMF Accounts Registers and IMF Spouse SSN Directory are replaced by parts of the Transcript Research System (TRS) which provide for requesting, extracting and editing MF transcript data. Retention Registers are produced for entity and tax modules removed from the Master Files. Requests for modules on Retention will be submitted using the current procedures. For example, all IMF accounts that have gone to Retention will continue to be found by researching the IMF Retention Register Microfilm with the appropriate District Office and year. Similarly, almost all BMF accounts that have gone to Retention will be located on the BMF Retention Register Microfilm. Some of the BMF MFT's that have gone to Retention in cycle 197901 or earlier can be found by searching the Residual Master File Retention Register microfilm. The partnership Name Directory and the national EO and EP Alpha Registers are produced on microfilm. Microfilm operations, which utilize document images (for example: FTD and WIRS) are not affected by MRS. WIRS data can be requested via Command Code MFTRA. FTD microfilm cannot be requested via MFTRA.

2.3.32.3  (01-01-2000)
Special Search Conditions on Master File

  1. MF Search by TIN — Account Found Requests are researched at the MF via the input TIN. In the event the primary SSN is unknown, a request may be input with the Spouse's SSN and a Spouse SSN Indicator. This will cause a search of the ECC-MTB Spouse SSN XREF File using the input SSN. If a primary SSN is found, an attempt will be made to extract data from the MF for that TIN. The Primary SSN will become the account TIN on the hardcopy transcript.

  2. MF Search by TIN — Account Not Found — If data is not found on the MF for a TIN, a search will be made of the TIN Change File at ECC-MTB. If a new TIN is found the requestor will be notified and the request itself will be held at ECC-MTB until the next night when an attempt will be made to extract tax account data under the new TIN.

2.3.32.4  (01-01-2003)
MF Search Order

  1. Command Code MFTRA requests will be run against the various files at ECC-MTB in the following order:

    1. Spouse's SSN Cross Reference File — If request indicates this search is necessary, this file is searched. It contains Spouse SSN references to Primary SSN for the current IMF Name lines.

    2. Active Entities or Tax Modules are searched.

    3. Inactive Entities or Tax Modules are searched.

    4. Lower Levels — Normally, all extracted data will be extracted and returned to the user overnight. However, in unusual circumstances, data for older tax years which reside on the IMF and BMF Level 3 files at ECC-MTB will be delayed another day.

    5. TIN Change X-Ref File — If the requested module is not on the Master File at all, the request will be passed against this file. If a TIN is found on this file, the requestor is notified and the request is automatically input in the next night's extract under the New TIN (exception: the request is a Spouse SSN request). The TIN Change X-Ref File contains a record of all TIN changes made at the MF from January 1978 to the present. TIN changes, which took place prior to this date, must be researched on the old microfilm.

    6. DROPPED/DELETED Entity File — The DDEF is searched to see if an account has also been aged off or deliberately deleted under the same TIN even if the TIN is not on the Active Master File.

2.3.32.5  (01-01-2005)
Delivery Time Frames for Master File Transcripts

  1. ECC-MTB transcripts obtained from the IMF and BMF files at ECC-MTB via IDRS Command Codes MFTRA are usually returned to the user within 24 hours if input prior to the cutoff time (4:00 p.m. EST).

  2. Requestor should NOT ask for the same data twice in the same day. Duplicate requests tie up system resources. Potential abuse can be traced via a batch program (TRS91). ECC-MTB can only process a total of 100 requests for the same TIN per night. All requests over 100 will not be processed.

  3. All requests are sent through a data communications link between ECC-MTB and each Service Campus on a daily basis. If the request is input prior to a specified cutoff time in the afternoon most requested data will be extracted from the Master Files that night and returned to the user the following day.

  4. NUMIDENT transcripts will be returned in approximately three days. Hardcopy transcripts will be manually distributed at Service Campuses. Remote Office receive their requests via local printers. TIGTA transcript files are sent electronically by KCSC.

2.3.32.6  (01-01-2002)
Alternative Method of Requesting Master File Transcripts

  1. For those users who have limited access to an IDRS terminal, requests may also be entered via other information systems. These requests are processed through a batch program (TRS90) before going to MF. Other IDRS Command Codes may have the capability of generating a transcript request but are not part of the TRS.

2.3.32.7  (01-01-2003)
Formats for Transcripts

  1. Command Code TFTRA - Eliminated 01/2005.

2.3.32.8  (07-01-2008)
MFTRA Request Types

  1. Various Request Types may be input with Command Code MFTRA. The request type determines the kind of data desired by the requestor and the extent MF sequence search described above. If the request is valid, and no entity for the TIN is found on the IMF or BMF, there will be an attempt to extract the same data from the Invalid Segment using the same SSN, on the following day. A request for a specific type will result in the most extensive search. This search will continue through the sequence, including the lower levels until the requested data is located (provided the account is present on one of the files). Request Types C, B, +, -, A, D, Y, Z, # and T will not physically search the lower levels but will generally provide a list of modules available on the lower levels and a separate list of modules removed to the Retention Register. The following table describes the type of data returned for the various Request Types is as follows:

    C Complete — The complete entity module (including posted transactions) and all non-low-level tax modules followed by a list of all low-level modules. Do not use the " C" Request Type except in the rare instance where none of the other Request Types listed below are adequate. The overzealous use of " Completes" can jeopardize the 24-hour turnaround standard for all users.
    M MFT (BMF and IMF) — The entity module (except posted entity transactions), and all non-low-level modules for input MFT.
    E Entity — The complete entity module (includes posted transactions)
    T Transaction Code — The entity module (except posted entity transactions) and all non-low-level modules containing requested transaction code.
    A Transaction Amount — The entity module (except posted entity transactions) and all non-low-level tax modules which have a posted transaction with a money (debit/credit) amount matching the input Transaction Amount. If the transaction amount desired is a credit, input a minus (-) after the amount.
    D Transaction Date — The entity module (except posted entity transactions), and all non-low-level tax modules with a posted transaction carrying the same Transaction Date as the input Transaction Date.
    B Open Balance — The entity module (except posted entity transactions) and all non-low-level tax modules that meet offset criteria. If no modules meet offset criteria, only Entity information will be supplied.
    + Debit Balance — The entity module (except posted entity transactions), and all non-low-level tax modules which meet offset criteria. If no modules meet offset criteria, only Entity information will be supplied.
    Credit Balance — The entity module (except posted entity transactions), and all non-low-level tax modules with a credit module balance.
    P Plan Names and Plan Data — Eliminated 01/2004. Use EMFOL.
    Y All BMF Tax Modules for One year — The entity module (except entity posted transactions) and all of the non-low level BMF Tax Modules for the requested one year period.
    X BMF or IMF hardcopy literal transcripts are designed primarily for taxpayer and/or taxpayer representative use.
    Request Type "X" is unlike most Request Types, since it will search for and extract data for a Tax Module which has been inactivated to the Lower Level File.
    L Lower Level MFT (BMF and IMF) — The entity module (except posted entity transactions) and all lower-level modules for the MFT input (hardcopy only). The Lower Level Files contain dormant modules which are not yet old enough to go to Retention.
    Z Request for a Specific Tax Module from the Annual Temporary Retention Register Backup File — The entity module (except posted entity transactions) from the Active Master File and the Specific Tax Module that has just gone to Retention in cycle 01 (hardcopy only), from the Annual Temporary Retention Register Backup File. Only the current year is held on the ATRR Backup File. It is updated weekly on Fridays.
    G Debtor Master File Transcript — Eliminated 01/2005.
    W Wage Information Retrieval System - Eliminated 07/2008.
    # Document Locator Number — The entity module (except posted entity transactions), and all non-low-level tax modules which have a transaction with the DLN matching the input DLN.
    K Yearly BMF Literal transcript for all MFTs.
    U NUMIDENT Transcript — Contains entity information from the Social Security Administration (SSA).
      If none of these Request Types are input, a specific tax module request will automatically be generated. It will provide the entity module (except posted entity transactions), and the requested tax module from whatever level it is on. A list of Retention Register information will be provided only if the module is not on the MF and is old enough to be on the retention register, and the entity module exists on the active MF.
    J Form 4340, Certificate of Assessments, Payments, Other Matters was implemented 07/02/2001 for specific work units.

Terminal Messages and Responses

  1. The following table displays the message returned and the possible corrective action.

    MSG PLEASE CORRECT INVALID/INCONSISTENT FIELD(s)
    * If data is invalid, or invalid and inconsistent, an asterisk will appear to right of the field(s).
    ? If input data is inconsistent only, a question mark will appear to the right of the field(s).
    RESP Correct data and re-enter.
    Note To facilitate the correction of the screen for re-entry, the cursor will be moved to position one on the first line that has within it at least one invalid/inconsistent entry.
    Note If the TIN field is identified as invalid (*) and the correction results in a valid SSN, change the asterisk (indicating the invalidity) to a comma, to eliminate any possibility of the SSN being validated as an invalid-segment SSN.
    Note If a TIN is entered on both line 1 and line 2, then the TIN on line 2 will be marked as invalid (*).

    MSG LINE 24 CANNOT BE USED FOR INPUT
    RESP Remove information from line 24 entry and reenter.
    Note If data was input on Line 24 of the screen, lines 1 through 23 will be redisplayed with this message.

    MSG INPUT IGNORED — PREVIOUS REQUEST COMPLETED SCREEN HAS BEEN ERRONEOUSLY RE-INPUT
    RESP To use part of a previous screen, the "RC" or "IG" literals must be removed on lines that are altered.
    Note Lines having an " RC" or an "IG" literal are ignored on subsequent entries.

    MSG REQUESTS FOR MFTRD INVALID as of 01/17/2003
    RESP None.

    MSG REQUEST COMPLETED EMP# XXXXXXXXXX MMDDYY HH: MM
    RESP None
    Note Valid Response. Indicates that the request(s) is valid and consistent, and has been accepted.
    Note If there is only one request on the screen, and it has been accepted as valid and consistent, the cursor will be moved to the first position of the first line.
    Note If more than one request on screen, and at least one is accepted as valid and consistent, the cursor will be moved to the first position of the first line where the next batch entry would begin. Screen remains intact, to facilitate further requests.
    Note Only request lines without "RC" or "IG" in position 75 thru 76 are validated and accepted.
    Note Leftover screens with the REQUEST COMPLETED message on line 24 can be reused, but only entry lines without the "RC" or the "IG" literals will be processed.
    Note The "IG" literal replaces the "RC" literal when a line is retransmitted without removing the "RC" literal.

Record Element Description

Item Description
1 COMMAND CODE — MFTRA for hardcopy requests.

Note:

MFTRD realtime requests was deleted 01–2003.
2 TIN AND FILE SOURCE — Valid File Sources are blank, *, P, X, or V. For multiple entries: An "R" may be entered instead of the TIN AND FILE SOURCE to repeat that of the previous entry. This will repeat the TIN AND FILE SOURCE from line 1 or 2 unless another TIN has been entered on a subsequent entry. For operator convenience, if TIN is left in Line 1 from a previous Command Code entry, this TIN will be used instead of a TIN that would otherwise need to be entered on line 2.
When the TIN and FILE SOURCE are entered on line 1, the Comma field breaker is not required to be entered on line 2. In this case, Item 3 begins in position 1 of Line 2.
For multiple inputs, an "R" may be entered instead of the TIN and FILE SOURCE to repeat that of the previous entry.
3 SPOUSE SSN/INVALID SEGMENT REQUEST CODE — One or two position code which is optional for IMF and BMF SSN requests only. Cannot be entered with BMF EIN or Numident requests. Also, cannot be entered for REQUEST — TYPE's "X" , "K" or "U" .
If entered on BMF SSN requests, the only value permitted is "I" .
I — Indicates to MFTRA to generate two requests, one directed to the valid segment for this SSN (" this SSN" meaning only to the original SSN input), the other directed to the invalid segment (only for the original SSN input). Transcript data from the valid segment and transcript data from the invalid segment will be returned overnight for the original SSN entered.
If present on IMF requests, the only values possible are "S" , "B" , and "I" . However, if both the SPOUSE SSN and the INVALID SEGMENT REQUEST indicators are entered, the SPOUSE SSN indicator must be entered first. Thus, the only valid combinations on IMF request entries are "S" , "B" , "SI" , "BI" (generates 4 requests with one entry), or "I" , where
I — See explanation above.
S — Search the input TIN on the Spouse's SSN File to find a primary SSN for searching the Master File. This indicates that the input SSN is known to be a secondary (Spouse's) SSN. The program will attempt to locate the primary SSN and return output under the primary SSN only.
B — This indicates that it is not known whether the input SSN is a primary or a secondary SSN. If the SSN is a secondary SSN, the program will locate the primary SSN and return output under the primary SSN. If the SSN is a primary SSN, the program will return output under the input SSN. If the SSN is both a primary and a secondary SSN, the program will return output for both cases.
4 REQUEST TYPE — See general information for a description of the output. (For IMF-29 formally IRAF, G, K, L, M, P, U, X, Y, Z and # are not valid.)
  C = Complete
  M = MFT (BMF and IMF)
  E = Entity
  T = Transaction Code — TRANSACTION CODE field must also be input.
  A = Transaction Amount — TRANSACTION AMOUNT field must also be input. Also minus sign, if matchup to a credit transaction is desired.
  D = Transaction Date — TRANSACTION DATE field must also be input.
  B = Open Balance
  + = Debit Balance (including accrued penalty and interest)
  - = Credit Balance
  P = Plan Name List and all Plan Module Data, for one EPMF account eliminated 01/2004. Use EMFOL.
  G = Debtor Master File List of Obligors (DMF) eliminated 01/2005.
  Y = All BMF Modules for One Year. This feature should reduce the need for Complete Requests.
  X = BMF or IMF Hardcopy Literal transcripts. The results of this request are designed to be distributed to the taxpayer and/or his representative.
  K = Yearly Literal transcript for all MFT'S for BMF.
  J Form 4340, Certificate of Assessments, Payments, Other Matters
  L = Request for all of the Lower Level Tax Modules for a particular MFT (BMF and IMF only). This should reduce the need for entering multiple specific tax module requests for those modules residing on the Lower Level Files.
  U = NUMIDENT (IMF Only) Transcript returned in approximately three days. This information will be obtained from the Social Security Administration (SSA).
  Z = Request for One Specific Module from an Annual Temporary Retention Register Backup File. (BMF and IMF only). "Z" will cause the generation of a transcript from the special annual file from which the latest Retention Register was extracted in cycle 01. This annual file will serve as a temporary backup to current microfilm processing. Once a week, ECC-MTB will pass one week's accumulation of " Z" requests against this annual file. Note that "Z" requires the entry of the full correct tax period.
  W = Wage Information Retrieval System - Eliminated 07/2008.
  # = Document Locator Number — DLN field must also be input (IMF and BMF).
  None = Specific Tax Module — MFT and Tax Period, MFT and Plan Number of MFT, Plan Number and Tax Period must also be input.
5 MFT — If input, must be 2 digits which pass standard validity criteria as described in IRM 2.3.8 except: MFT of 00 and NMF MFTs are invalid. May be input without a request type but with a tax period (to request a Specific Tax Module) or with Request Type "M" with no tax period (to request all tax modules for an MFT). For multiple inputs an "R" may be entered instead of the MFT to repeat that of the previous entry.
6 PLAN NUMBER — Must be 3 numeric characters. Valid range is 001–999. Must be present for EPMF MFT 46, 74, and 76.
7 TAX PERIOD — YYYYMM format.
The full six digit TAX PERIOD must be entered when only one Specific Tax Module or one BMF Literal Tax Module is requested for a quarterly return (MFT 01, 03, and 04). However, as an option to obtain the transcripts for all the quarters of the requested tax year for these same MFT's, enter only the year (for example 85).
For Specific Tax Module requests or BMF or IMF Literal requests for annual returns (MFT–30, 02, 05, 06, 07, 33, 34, 36, 37, 44, and 67), the year is required, but the month ending is optional. If the month ending is known, enter it. If the month ending is omitted, Master File processing will attempt to locate a Fiscal Year Month on the entity to use to match up to the Specific Tax Module. If there is no FYM on the entity, the default is to "12" . MFT 10 and MFT 11 must be entered with full TAX PERIOD. MFT 15 tax period must be 199012 or greater and month must be 12.
A tax period of " 000000" may be entered for a specific request for MFT 01 or MFT 52 only, to obtain a transcript for a Federal Tax Deposit module. For multiple inputs an "R" may be entered instead of the TAX PERIOD to repeat that of the previous entry.
8 TRANSACTION CODE — If present, must be three numeric characters.
9 TRANSACTION DATE — Input in MMDDYYYY format. May not be later than the current date.
10 TRANSACTION AMOUNT — Input commas when required. First position may not be blank or $. If the amount is a credit amount input a minus (-) after the amount, if a debit input nothing after the amount. May not exceed 14 characters (excluding minus sign). For IMF: May not exceed 13 characters (excluding minus sign).
11 Reserved
12 RECEIVER EMPLOYEE NUMBER — Input only if the receiver of transcript data is other than the terminal operator. (See Item 15 below for exception when using the "L" feature.) First 2 characters must be a valid Service Center or District Office, within input Service Center's jurisdiction. Last eight characters may not be all zeros. For multiple inputs an "R" may be entered instead of the RECEIVER EMPLOYEE NUMBER to repeat that of the previous entry's. If the RECEIVER NAME/REMARKS is to be entered but not a RECEIVER EMPLOYEE NUMBER, enter a comma in its place followed by RECEIVER NAME/REMARKS immediately to the right.
13 RECEIVER NAME/REMARKS — If receiver does not have a unique Employee Number, input identifying information for transcript distribution. Do not input "*" , or "?" . For multiple inputs an "R" may be entered instead of the RECEIVER NAME to repeat that of the previous entry's. (See Item 15 below for exception when using the "L" feature.) This field can contain one to 21 characters.
14 LINE REPEAT INDICATOR— (Optional) If the operator wants the two previous line items (items 13 and 14) to be carried over to all the subsequent entries on this screen, then the operator enters an "L" in item 15. Both RECEIVER EMPLOYEE NUMBER and RECEIVER NAME/REMARKS must be input when using the "L" . You cannot use the Repeat Indicator " R" to repeat the RECEIVER EMPLOYEE NUMBER and/or RECEIVER NAME/REMARKS field on any request following an "L" line until both fields have been changed, voiding the previous " L" line repeat indicator. The values in items 13 and 14 will be written on every subsequent MFTRA request until both fields are changed (manually entered) by the operator. By the use of "L" , an operator can easily enter multiple requests on the same screen with the same RECEIVER EMPLOYEE NUMBER and RECEIVER NAME/REMARKS with a minimum of keystrokes.
15 RC LITERAL/IG LITERAL — This will be either "RC" (which stands for REQUEST COMPLETED for this one entry), or "IG" (which stands for REQUEST IGNORED for this one entry), or two blanks. None of these "RC" or " IG" literals will be present on an initial entry, but they may be present on a subsequent entry. If present, and the operator wishes to enter a subsequent request on that line, the "RC" or " IG" must be manually cleared out. Any entry ending with an " RC" or an "IG" is ignored by MFTRA on any possible subsequent re-entries. This feature allows the operator to alter any one (or more) of the entries and re-enter any portion of the screen (or the entire screen) without the need to clear out individual line entries and literals. Leaving the "RC" or the "IG" intentionally on subsequent entries prevents inadvertent duplicate requests.
Manually clearing out the "RC" entry or the "IG" entry (via "NEW LINE" button on keyboard) facilitates the entry of multiple screens of specific requests. Those entries initially ending with an "RC" that did not have the "RC" entry cleared out will not be accepted for re-entry, and will be identified on subsequent entries with "IG" to indicate they were ignored. For example, if eight specific requests are entered on one screen for all the quarters of MFT "01" Form 941 Tax Returns in the years ending in 1987 and 1988, and the operator also desires to obtain all the quarters of MFT "03" Form 720 Tax Returns for the same taxpayer and for the same years, all the operator has to do is change all the MFT's to "03" and clear out the "RC" or the "IG" literals, then re-enter with the entry code to the right of the last significant entry line.

Command Code MFTRA Input Examples — Request Types

Specific Tax Module — This entry will produce a transcript containing entity data (except posted transactions), all data for the requested tax module, and for IMF and BMF, and a list of inactive (lower level) modules. If the requested tax module is not found on the Master File, retention register (vestigial) data will be returned, but only for the specific tax module requested and only if this specific tax module has gone to the retention register. Except for Request Types "L" and "X" , this is the only Request Type, which will extract tax module data from the lower levels. Note that the full tax period must be entered for quarterly returns. For yearly returns, the entry of the Month Ending portion of the Tax Period is optional. If the Tax Module requested has gone to the Retention Register, an Automatic Microfilm request will be generated without the need for input of an ESTAB "M" .

Credit Module Balance Request — This entry will produce a transcript containing entity data (except posted transactions) and all tax modules with credit module balances. For IMF and BMF, this also includes a list of inactive (low level) tax modules.

This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. Please click the link to view the image.

Transaction Amount/Date/Code/DLN Requests — These entries will produce a transcript containing entity data (except posted transactions) and any tax modules which contain a transaction that had the same Transaction Amount, Transaction Date, Transaction Code or DLN as was input.
In order to match up to a Credit Amount on Transaction Amount searches, a minus sign (-) must be entered. Leaving a blank to the right of the Transaction Amount will only match up to Debit Amounts.

This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. Please click the link to view the image.

The Request Type determines when an additional input field is required. If Request Type "T" is input, then the Transaction Code must be input. If Request Type "A" is input, then the Amount field must be input. If Request Type "D" is input, then the Transaction Date must be input. If Request Type "# " is input, then the DLN field must be input.

MFT (Tax Class) Request — This entry will produce a transcript containing only those tax modules for the input MFT (BMF and IMF) Also, entity data (except posted transactions) and a list of retention register (vestigial) and inactive (low level) tax modules.

This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. Please click the link to view the image.

All BMF tax modules for a year, use Request Type "Y" . Note: month portion of the tax period field is optional. The use of MFTRA (hardcopy) is preferred, due to volume of data extracted. Type "Y" will obtain information for the four quarterly returns that precede and correspond to the Fiscal Year Month Ending. For example, if a corporation files its corporate return (MFT = 02) with a Tax Period Ending 200106 and the Request Type "Y" is entered for " 2001" , the quarterly returns extracted along with the corporate return will be those for 200009, 200012, 200103 and 200106.

BMF and IMF Literal transcripts (hardcopy only), use Request-Type "X" . Note month portion of the tax period field is optional for most yearly tax modules and all quarterly filed tax modules. To obtain all 4 quarters of tax modules for MFT 01, 03, or 04, omit month portion. For all but two of the yearly filed tax modules, omit month portion. The full six-digit Tax Period must be entered for yearly filed returns for MFT 10, MFT 11 and MFT 15. MFT 15 tax period must be 200212 or greater and month must be 12. The four requests below will extract transcript data for seven tax modules even if the Fiscal Month Ending for the Form 1040 and Form 1120 returns is "09" . Data will be returned and edited for a module, even if found on a Lower Level at ECC-MTB. However, an Automatic Microfilm request will not be generated by IDRS if the module resides on the Retention Register.

Yearly BMF literal transcripts, use Request-Type "K" . Only the year portion of the tax period field is required for yearly tax modules and quarterly filed tax modules. Data will be returned and edited for a module, even if found on a Lower Level at ECC-MTB. However, an Automatic Microfilm request will not be generated by IDRS if the module resides on the Retention Register.

Command Code MFTRA Input Example — "Batch" Entry and Use of "L" Line Repeat

Data can be entered on lines 2 through 23. Line 24 is reserved for error messages. The line repeat indicator "L" is used to repeat the Receiver Employee Number and the Name/Remarks field when entering multiple requests; both fields must be input when using the line repeat indicator "L" . When using the "L" , the fields will be generated for each subsequent request on the screen unless both fields are changed by the operator.
To change the Receiver Employee Number and/or Name/Remarks field on any line subsequent to the "L" line, you must re-enter both fields. In addition, you cannot use the Repeat Indicator "R" to repeat the Receiver Employee Number and/or Name/Remarks field on any request following an "L" line until both fields have been changed, voiding the previous "L" line repeat indicator.

Not using "L" example — five transcript requests are generated.

5 MFT (present for Request Type "M" or Specific only).
6 TAX PERIOD/PLAN NUMBER—Can contain Tax Period, Plan Number, or Plan Number and Tax Period (present for Specific requests only). Can also be all zeros for specific request for MFT 01 only.
7 SPOUSE SSN SEARCH INDICATOR-S—Searched the input TIN on the Spouse's SSN File to find a primary SSN for searching the Master File.
8 TRANSACTION CODE/AMOUNT/DATE—Depending on the Request Type this field will carry a transaction cod (TCnnn) the transaction amount (with commas and decimal point) or the transaction date (MMDDYYYY).
9 REQUEST TIME—In format HH:MM, this field shows when the requestor input the request. This will provide aid in resolving whether request was made before or after the cutoff time (generally 4 P.M. Eastern time) for a day's requests.
9A REQUEST SOURCE AND REQUEST SUB SOURCE—Indicates which system generated this MFTRA request.
10 RECEIVER NAME/REMARKS

12 DUE TO RESEQUENCING Literal—Will appear only when this request is satisfied due to re-sequence processing by the Master Files. Example: If there is no match to the account originally requested, but there is a TIN Change situation, the first request (an advice record) will be returned without this message, but this message will appear when the request is satisfied the next night at NCC using the TIN obtained from the TIN Change file. This message will prove helpful in distinguishing between requests that were immediately satisfied as opposed to those that were re-sequenced.
13 RESEARCH CONTROL MESSAGES—can be a variable number of the following messages:
ACCOUNT FOUND ON DMF—The Debtor Master File was searched and at least one Debtor Obligation was found.
ACCOUNT NOT ON DMF—The Debtor Master File was searched but no account matches the SSN entered.
ACCOUNT FOUND ON SSA FILE—The Social Security Administration File was searched and at least one Numident record was found.
ACCOUNT NOT ON SSA FILE—The Social Security Administration File was searched but no account matches the SSN entered.
SP SSN NOT ON SP SSN FILE—Input SSN not on Spouse's SSN File.
NO TIN ON TIN CHG FILE—TIN was not found on the Master File or on the MF TIN Change File Cross Reference File.
INPUT SP SSN-nnn-nn-nnnn—A search of the Spouse's SSN File revealed a primary SSN, this message records the input SSN that was used to obtain the primary TIN.
PRIM ON SP SSN-nnn-nn-nnnn—Spouse's SSN Indicator was input and the search of the Spouse's SSN File revealed this Primary SSN. Input ACTRA with this Primary SSN to display account data.
OLD INPUT TIN-vvvvvvvvvvvv (v=TIN)—This account is under a new TIN which was found on the TIN Change Cross Reference File. The TIN in this message was the input TIN.
  NEW TIN FR TIN CHG FILE-vvvvvvvvvvvv (v=TIN)—A new TIN was found on the TIN Change Cross Reference File and this is that TIN. Input ACTRA with this new TIN to display account data. ACTRA data will be available the second day after the request day.
MF NOT SEARCHED—This message should normally only appear if (1) the MFTRA request indicated a Spouse SSN File search, (2) the SSN was of found on the Spouse SSN File and so was forwarded straight to the TIN Change Cross-reference File (bypassing the MF) (3) the TIN was not found on the TIN Change Cross-reference File—therefore the input TIN was not searched for on the MF. (If a search of the MF is desired, input another request without the Spouse SSN Indicator). It will therefore appear along with the messages "SPSSN NOT ON SPSSN FILE" and "NO TIN ON TIN CHGE FILE" .
ENTITY NOT ON ACTIVE—Master File was searched and no account was found. This message always refers only to the TIN that was originally requested. If the message "OLD INPUT TIN" (see above) precedes this message, then the TIN to the right of the " OLD INPUT TIN" is the entity that is not on the Active Master File.
ACCOUNT DATA DELAYED—Master File was searched, account data was found and will be received in 1 or 2 days. This delay is caused when tax module data is on less active (lower) levels of the MF.
REQUEST RESEQUENCED AT MF—An operational problem has occurred at ECC-MTB which prevented extract of requested data. Request will a automatically re-sequenced by ECC-MTB processing for the next night's extract.
  ENTITY FOUND ON ACTIVE MF—Request Type "E" (Entity) was input and the entity was found.
ENTITY FOUND ON DROPPED MASTER FILE
(Note: This message only appears on HARDCOPY transcripts and is included in this LEM only because some employees do not have access to IRM 21.2.4, Transcripts in IRM 21.2) For every BMF and IMF Entity Request (Type "E" ), there is an automatic attempt at ECC-MTB to locate an account with the same TIN on the Dropped Master File. If there is no match-up on the DROPPED MASTER FILE, no special message is returned to IDRS. If there is a match-up, a hardcopy transcript is returned with this message and a YEAR REMOVED field, so that user can initiate a MICROFILM request (via ESTAB "M" ), if desired. The DROPPED MASTER FILE contains a minimal amount of information about accounts which have aged off the Active Master Files and Lower Level Files. The most valuable item of information is a list of those tax modules for that TIN which have gone to RETENTION. A limitation of the DROPPED MASTER FILE is that it extends back only as far as those accounts which have been dropped since January 1984.
  ENTITY FOUND ON DELETED MASTER FILE—
( Note: This message only appears on HARDCOPY transcripts and is included in this IRM only because employees do not have access to IRM 21.2.4, Transcripts, in IRM 21.2.) Similarly, for every BMF and IMF Entity Request (Type "E" ), there is an automatic attempt at NCC to locate an account with the same TIN on the Deleted Master File. If there is no match-up on the DELETED MASTER FILE , no special message is returned to IDRS. If there is a match-up, a hardcopy transcript is returned with this message, so that user can initiate a MICROFILM request (via ESTAB "M" ), if desired. The DELETED MASTER FILE can be a valuable source of information about Account Merge situations. The DELETED MASTER FILE transcript contains much the same information as appears on Entity Requests against Active accounts, including Entity posted Transactions
( Example: TC 020). A valuable item of information is a list of those tax modules for that TIN which have gone to RETENTION. A limitation of the DELETED MASTER FILE is that it extends back only as far as those accounts that have been deleted since January 1984.
ENTITY ONLY FOUND ON ACTIVE MF—Request Type "C" (Complete) was input and only an entity was found on the MF.
  ENTITY AND TAX MODULE DATA FOUND ON MF—Request Type " C" (Complete) was input for a non-EPMF account and entity and tax module data was found.
ENTITY AND PLAN DATA ONLY FOUND ON MF —Request Type "C" was input for an EPMF account and no tax module(s) was found.
ENTITY AND PLAN DATA FOUND ON MF—A request for a specific EPMF tax module did not find a tax module but did find entity and plan data.
ENTITY PLAN AND TAX MODULE FOUND ON MF——Request Type "C" (Complete) was input for EPMF and the account has entity, plan, and tax module data.
REQUESTED TAX MODULE FOUND ON MF—The specific tax module that was requested was found on the MF.
  TAX MODULE(S) FOUND FOR MFT—Request Type " M" (MFT) was input and tax modules were found for the input MFT.
OPEN BAL TAX MODULE(S) FOUND ON MF—Request Type "B" (Open Balance) was input and open balance tax modules were found.
CREDIT BAL TAX MODULE(S) FOUND ON MF—Request Type "-" (Credit Balance) was input and credit balance tax modules were found.
DEBIT BAL TAX MODULE(S) FOUND ON MF—Request Type "+" (Debit Balance) was input and debit balance tax modules were found.
TAX MODULE(S) FOUND FOR TC—Request Type "T" (Transaction Code) was input and the account has a tax module(s) containing the input TC.
TAX MODULE(S) FOUND FOR TC AMOUNT—Request Type "A" (Transaction Amount) was input and the account has a tax module(s) containing the input transaction amount.
TAX MODULE(S) FOUND FOR TC DATA—Request Type "D" (Transaction Date) was input and the account has a tax module(s) containing the input transaction date.
TAX MODULE(S) FOUND FOR DLN—Request Type "#" (Document Locator Number) was input and tax modules for the matching DLN were found.
REQUESTED TAX MODULE NOT ON MF—The requested specific tax module, plan data or quarterly modules for the input year are not on the MF.
NO TAX MODULE FOR MFT—Request Type "M" (MFT) was input and there were no tax modules on the MF account for the input MFT.
NO OPEN BAL TAX MODULE—Request Type " B" (Open Balance) was input but no open balance modules are present on the MF account.
NO CREDIT BALE TAX MODULE—Request Type "-" (Credit Balance) was input but no credit balance modules are present on the MF account.
NO DEBIT BAL TAX MODULE—Request Type "+" (Debit Balance) was input but no debit balance modules are present on the MF account.
NO TAX MODULE WITH TC—Request Type " T" (Transcription Code was input but there were no tax modules containing the TC input.
  NO TAX MODULE WITH TC AMOUNT—Request Type "A " (Transaction Amount) was input but there were no tax modules containing the transaction amount input.
NO TAX MODULE WITH TC DATE —Request Type "D" (Transaction Date) was input but there were no tax modules containing the transaction date input.
NO TAX MODULE WITH DLN—Request Type " #" (Document Locator Number) was input but there were no tax modules containing the DLN input.
MERGE IN PROCESS TO THIS TIN REQUEST WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY SATISFIED WHEN MERGE COMPLETE IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO REQUEST AGAIN—An account merge is taking place at the MF. Do not input another request for this TIN. The request will be automatically generated when merge is complete and returned in HARDCOPY format. It could take up to 3 weeks to receive your transcript.
  MERGE IN PROCESS FROM THIS TIN REQUEST WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY SATISFIED WHEN MERGE COMPLETE IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO REQUEST AGAIN—An account merge is taking place at the MF. Do not input another request for this tin. The request will be automatically generated when merge is complete and returned in HARDCOPY format. It could take up to 3 weeks to receive your transcript.
NEW TIN FROM TIN CHANGE FILE nnnnnnnnn REQUEST FOR NEW TIN AUTOMATICALLY GENERATED—The account merge has completed at the MF. Transcript for new TIN will be received with the following day's transcripts.
REQUEST FOR INV SEGMENT TIN IS AUTOMATIC—Whenever no entity for this TIN is found on the IMF, IRAF, or BMF when a Valid segment SSN is requested, there will be an attempt to extract the same data from the Invalid Segment using the same SSN, on the following day. Requester does not need to re-input request using Invalid Segment SSN. This special processing does not apply to requests directed toward the Spouse SSN file. Also note that the automatic search toward the Invalid Segment SSN is not performed once any data in any form (even if only entity information) is returned from the request directed toward the Valid Segment SSN.
14 SEPARATE DELETED DATA TRANSCRIPT IS PRINTED—
( Note: This message appears on HARD COPY transcripts. Only printed on IMF and BMF Entity Requests which find no data when directed toward the Active Master File and TIN Change File. However, the same day's search of the Deleted Entity File does find a match to that TIN. The data from the Deleted Entity File is returned to a transcript separate from the "No Data" transcript associated with this message.
SEPARATE DROPPED DATA TRANSCRIPT IS PRINTED—
( Note: This message appears on HARD COPY transcripts. Only printed on IMF or BMF Entity Requests which find no data when directed toward the Active Master File and TIN Change File. However, the same day's search of the Dropped Entity File does find a match to that TIN. The data from the Dropped Entity File is returned to a transcript separate from the "No Data" transcript associated with this message.
SEPARATE DROPPED + DELETED DATA TRANSCRIPTS ARE PRINTED—

When the REQUEST TYPE "S" in the Request Data, only one reference to a retention register module will be extracted to this list. The message "A MICROFILM REQUEST HAS BEEN GENERATED" will be displayed only for this case to show the operator that there is no need to input an ESTAB " M" . It has been done automatically for specific requests only. There is no need to request microfilm, unless the entity module does not exist on the active master file. However, if the removal cycle indicates that this module was removed to the Retention Register during the current year, and if your Service Center has not received the microfilm, MFTRA Request Type "Z" should be used.

When the REQUEST TYPE= "C" a complete list of modules is returned. Operator must input one or more microfilm requests via CC ESTAB "M" ( See IRM 2.3.18) to obtain data for these modules, if desired.
