2.3.39  Command Code FTPIN

2.3.39.1  (06-23-2009)
Overview CC FTPIN

  1. Command code FTPIN displays explanations of the computation of FTP Penalty Overview and/or Debit Interest. The FTP explanation will be displayed first in the multiple screen response. The computations use only information accessed from the ITIF or BTIF tax module.

  2. Only tax periods subsequent to 198212 will be considered.

  3. For a complete computation, the module must not contain any of the restrictive conditions specified in the list of messages in See IRM 2.3.39.2.

  4. Command code FTPIN will not attempt a match of master file's computation in most cases. It will only attempt to match master files' computations on full paid modules (i.e., when the master file status is 10 or 12 and the master file and service center module balances are both zero). When computing on full paid modules, a literal will be displayed on the screen indicating a match or mismatch condition.

  5. The output of command code FTPIN should be reviewed and carefully interpreted if the input TO DATE is prior to the date on any posted/pending transaction that changes the principal. If this condition exists, the following warning message will be displayed on the last screen page: TRANSACTION(S) OCCURRING AFTER COMPUTE-TO-DATE. REVIEW MANUALLY.

  6. The following warning message will be displayed if there is a transaction amount too large to display on the computation breakdown screen. The computation will be completed, but asterisks will be displayed in the amount field. Command code TXMOD or a TIF EDIT (UTL99) can be used to determine the actual transaction amount.
    "WARNING: *'s INDICATE TRANS AMT TOO LARGE TO DISPLAY. COMPUTATION COMPLETED OK"

  7. The command code will allow the TIN, MFT, tax period and name control to be passed from a preceding command code such as TXMOD and other PINEX command codes; thus eliminating the requirement to always input the data on the screen.

  8. The various screen displays for Command Code FTPIN are shown in See Exhibit 2.3.39-1. See Exhibit 2.3.39-2. See Exhibit 2.3.39-3. See Exhibit 2.3.39-4. See Exhibit 2.3.39-5.

Computation Restrictions CC FTPIN

  1. Due to the complex processing requirements, processing cannot always be terminated upon the first condition encountered that prevents computation of interest or FTP penalty. Therefore, in cases with multiple conditions, all non-compute conditions encountered will be reflected in the messages displayed on the screen. The messages and conditions that prevent computation of interest and/or FTP penalty are listed below.

*** Total line will be put out 2 lines following the last detail line.
Note 1: This element will usually carry a transaction code value.
  The following are "dummy" transaction codes that may also appear on the screen:
  912 Indicates trigger in FTP penalty computation to do full paid check. (Only used on modules that have a master file status 12 dated after 12-31-1986. The date tabled is the status 12, date.)
  888 Indicates FTP Penalty rate increased to 1% as of this entry date.
  STOP Indicates the entry date that computation of FTP stopped
  GO Indicates FTP start date when months delinquent is 5 and failure to file penalty has been assessed. Used in conjunction with "STOP" in transaction code.
  DFTF Indicates a dummy transaction date to stop FTP computation to determine how many months FTP has been assessed for failure to file penalty purposes.
  076 or 077 or
376 or 377
Indicates a TC 976 or TC 977 on the module. The transaction code is put in an internal program table as 076/077 for sorting purposes prior to computing the penalty.
Note 2: This indicates status of the transaction in the FTP Table. If table TRANS-CD is 888, its TRANS-STATUS-CD indicates the condition that triggered the increase in the penalty rate to 1%. The values are as follows:
    0 = TC 370
    8 = Status 58
    2 = Status 22
    4 = Status 24
    6 = Status 26
For other than TRANS-CD 888, the following are the TRANS-STATUS-CDs and their meanings:
    O = normal unreversed transaction
    1 = a reversed transaction
    D = This entry is for a dummy TC291/301. This entry indicates the credit amount still remaining after a TC291/301 credit amount was used to net out any TC29X/30X in the FTP Table.
    N = This table entry indicates the transaction amount has been changed by applying a credit amount from a TC 291/301 in the computation process.
    M = This table entry indicates there is a maximum failure to file penalty on the module which affects the maximum penalty allowed in the FTP Penalty computation.
Note 3: Percent field for penalty has been expanded to TWO decimal places. This is to accommodate a possible FTP Penalty of 1/4%. Due to screen limitations, this eliminates the space between 'PERCENTAGE' and subsequent 'PENALTY' field.

  **** If there are "******" in place of amount, a warning will appear after TOTAL INTEREST line indicating that the computation is correct but too many digits.
  ***** This element will usually carry transaction code values. The following are "dummy " transaction codes that may appear in the Interest Table:
    1) 076 or 376 Indicates there is a TC 976 (duplicate return) on the module. It is put in the table as " 076" for sorting purposes.
    2) 077 or 377 Indicates there is a TC 977 (amended return) on the module. It is put in the table as " 077" for sorting purposes.
    3) 022 Indicates a 2% interest trigger. All interest accrued after this date will be charged at a rate that is 2 percent higher than the normal debit interest rate for the period.
    4) 275 Indicates the FTP penalty portion of failure to file penalty that was assessed by master file for the period. For cycles 8500 through 8600, master file was incorrectly assessing full failure to file penalty when they should have assessed 4 1/2 % failure to file and 1/2% failure to pay. For TC 166's posted during this period, IDRS interest processing splits out the failure to pay penalty portion of the TC 166 transaction amount and stores in the table with a dummy transaction code of 275.
    5) 303 Indicates the beginning or ending of an 870 waiver interest free period for adjustments posted prior to 1/1/1988.
    6) 333 Indicates the end of an 870 waiver interest free period for adjustments posted prior to 1/1/88. This is associated to a "999" in the table.
    7) 999 Indicates the beginning of the 870 Waiver interest free period for adjustments posted beginning 1/1/1988.
