2.3.40  Command Code PICRD

2.3.40.1  (01-01-2009)
General Information for CC PICRD

  1. Command code PICRD displays explanations of the computation of Credit Interest (interest due the taxpayer) on allowable refunds and offsets. The computation uses only information accessed from the ITIF or BTIF tax module.

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

  3. Command code PICRD will only attempt computation if master file has computed credit interest (TC776) on the tax module. Command code PlCRD's computation is basically a recompute of master file's computation plus consideration of any qualified TIF pending transactions.

  4. The messages contained in See IRM 2.3.40.3 are strictly informational. They help to explain how the interest was computed. It is possible to receive multiple messages.

  5. 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.

  6. The various screens for command code PICRD are shown in See Exhibit 2.3.40-1 through See Exhibit 2.3.40-4.

  20. UNABLE TO COMPUTE NO POSTED RETURN — There is no posted return associated with this specific tax module.

  21. UNABLE TO COMPUTE CREDIT INTEREST COMPUTATION IS RESTRICTED — Credit interest computation is restricted due to one of the following conditions:

    1. I Freeze on module

  29. UNABLE TO COMPUTE NO MATCHING TRANSACTION FOR REFUND OR OFFSET REVERSAL TRANSACTION — There is a refund/offset reversal transaction that doesn't match a TC on the module.

  30. UNABLE TO COMPUTE REVERSAL OF REFUND OR OFFSET WITH RESTRICTED INTEREST — Manually compute — computer unable to backout restricted interest processing.

  31. NO CREDIT INTEREST ALLOWED. COMBAT ZONE TAXPAYER — Self explanatory.

  32. NO CREDIT INTEREST ALLOWED. UNPROCESSABLE RETURN — Self explanatory.
