2.3.44  Command Code PIVAR

All Official Use Only content has been replaced with ≡.

2.3.44.1  (01-01-2009)
General Information for Command Code PIVAR

  1. Command code PIVAR displays an explanation of the computation of the following penalties on a specific tax module:

    1. Bad Check See Exhibit 2.3.44-3.

    2. Failure to Report Tip Income See Exhibit 2.3.44-4.

    3. Fraud See Exhibit 2.3.44-5.

    4. Late Filing (also known as daily delinquency penalty) See Exhibit 2.3.44-6. See Exhibit 2.3.44-7. See Exhibit 2.3.44-8.

    5. Negligence See Exhibit 2.3.44-9.

  2. Four types of non-error responses are possible:

    1. Those penalties which were not assessed WILL NOT APPEAR on the screen. If all of the penalties were not assessed, a special no-penalties format will be displayed. See Exhibit 2.3.44-10.

    2. If a penalty was totally abated or requires special information as to why there is no computation breakdown an information line will be put out directly below the penalty name.

    3. A penalty computation breakdown will be displayed which explains how the penalty was computed.

    4. It is also possible to have a combination of penalty explanations using (b) and (c) above. The appropriate penalty name will be shown before each type of output.

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

  4. The computation uses only information accessed from the ITIF or BTIF tax module.

  5. For a complete computation, the module must not contain any of the restrictive conditions specified in the list of messages in See IRM 2.3.44.2.and See IRM 2.3.44.3.

  6. 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.

  7. The input screen is shown in See Exhibit 2.3.44-1.

  8. The output error display screen is shown in See Exhibit 2.3.44-2.
