2.3.50  Command Code LVREQ

2.3.50.1  (01-01-2007)
General Information for CC LVREQ

  1. Command Code LVREQ is used by IRS employees to input requests for taxpayer levy information from the FTD and/or RPS II Master Files. Entering LVREQ or LVREQP will display the screen with the appropriate input format.

  2. Data input using CC LVREQ creates a record to be sent to FTD/RPS II levy processing and will be added to the TIF through the TDA Levy processing string.

  3. Data input using CC LVREQ with a definer of "P" directs the levy source information to a paper listing (LVREQ Levy Source Listing) instead of updating the TIF. This LVREQ Levy Source Listing will be distributed per the functional area code and the receiver employee number entered on the request screen. If the receiver employee number on the request line is not entered the program will use the receiver employee number from line 1 (directly after the command code entry field). If the receiver employee number is not entered on line 1, the program will use the employee number from the SIR (Security Information Record).

  4. The various screens associated with Command Code LVREQ are shown in See Exhibit 2.3.50-1through See Exhibit 2.3.50-7.

2.3.50.2  (01-01-2007)
