2.3.68.1  (01-01-2015)
Command Code DUPOL

  1. Command Code (CC) DUPOL is designed to research and display information to assist in fraud detection of SSNs in both paper and electronically filed returns. CC DUPOL extracts taxpayer information from the Duplicate TIN Database that contains tax return information for the Tax Processing years 2013, 2014 and 2015.

2.3.68.2  (01-01-2015)
Command Code DUPOL Input Format

  1. The required input for CC DUPOL is:

    1. Command Code

    2. Command Code Definer (3, 4, or 5)

    3. TIN (edited or unedited SSN)

    4. TIN Type Code (also called 'validity digit'; values are blank or * only)

2.3.68.3  (01-01-2010)
Command Code DUPOL Output Screens

  1. Some of the features of the DUPOL command code output display screens include:

    1. CC DUPOL will display Nationwide and individual Service Center counts of how many times a particular SSN was used for the desired year. These counts will only be displayed on the first screen if multiple pages exist.

    2. CC DUPOL will display how many times the SSN was used, how it was used, and who used it.

    3. CC DUPOL will provide IDRS-like paging when multiple records exist.

    4. The paging routine will automatically position the cursor following the Start of Message symbol. When the ENTER key is depressed, the terminal will display the next page or any page designated by overlaying a page number onto the format by key input.

    Caution:

    Do not leave the terminal in a paging condition. Since no entry code is needed for input, anyone could depress the ENTER key and have unauthorized access to the display. Terminate terminal session by inputting SINOF.

2.3.68.4  (01-01-2015)
