2.3.77.1  (01-01-2010)
General

  1. An Innocent-Spouse-Tracking-Record is added to a module on IDRS whenever a Form 8857 is filed with the Service.

  2. As a case proceeds through the various stages needed to process that case, information about that stage and when it occurred is recorded in IDRS using Command Code ISTSE.

  3. Stages entered in error may be deleted. Incorrect information that had described a stage may be corrected.

  4. ISTSE offers a hook to ISTSD to delete the whole case. See IRM 2.3.76

  5. ISTSE may be entered through Command Code ISTSR with no definer, or ISTSR with a definer of 'S'. See IRM 2.4.56.

  6. Once ISTSE has been entered to update a case in an account, all necessary actions can be completed on that case without the need to reinitialize processing. Also, if the user needs to move to a case in another module in that account, ISTSE provides easy navigation to that new case.

  7. ISTSE definer I is designed to be used by Integrated Case Processing (ICP) for inputting Innocent Spouse tracking data.

2.3.77.2  (01-01-2009)
Using ISTSE With No Definer

  1. ISTSE may be entered in two ways. Command Code ISTSR definer S may be asked to pass a case to ISTSE to be updated. See IRM 2.4.56 for details. Command Code ISTSR with no definer may be used to enter ISTSE when initiating or updating a case. See IRM 2.4.56.

  2. Once ISTSE has been entered for an account, it is possible to continue through every module for the same case type (P or S) by entering the next module MFT and Tax Period. The returning screen will show the current stages of the new module case as well as the stage data just entered for the last case. See Exhibit 2.3.77–1.

  3. ISTSE inputs, validates and stores data about the progress of the case through the examination process. It records the stages a case reaches as well as comments about the case as it progresses. In addition, if a stage is changed or deleted, ISTSE marks it as such.

  4. If the same update is to be applied to more than one case, ISTSE will facilitate the process. When the stage and/or comment information is entered, before transmitting it, also entered the MFT and tax period of the new Case. ISTSE will update the current case, and then present the review/input screen for the new case, with the stage data previously entered retained on the new screen. Just tab to the end, and enter, or put in another tax period and MFT, and enter.

  5. The occasion for each stage and its optional and required input fields may be found in Exhibit 2.3.77–3.

  6. ISTSE provides a fast access to the command code that deletes Innocent Spouse cases, ISTSD. To access that command code for the current claim, to a 'Y' in the parentheses after the statement DELETE WHOLE CASE.

2.3.77.3  (01-01-2009)
Using ISTSE With Definer I

  1. ISTSE with definer I is intended to be used by the Integrated Case Processing System interface with the Innocent Spouse Tracking System. It allows multiple stages to be input at one time, and has a more compact but less user-friendly format. See Exhibit 2.3.77–2.

  2. (2) Stage data optional and required data are the same as for ISTSE with No Definer.

  3. (3) Up to 10 stages may be input at once with ISTSE Definer I.
