2.4.7.1  (01-01-2013)
Centralized Authorization File—General Overview

  1. The Centralized Authorization File (CAF) contains information regarding authorizations that taxpayers have given to third parties. These may be authorizations to represent the taxpayer in certain situations, to receive information (written and/or oral) regarding the taxpayer's account. The names and addresses for the authorized third parties (or reps) are on the database.

  2. The information on the CAF is used to determine whether a person claiming to be a taxpayer's representative is, in fact, authorized to receive taxpayer information or to act on the taxpayer's behalf. It is also used to address refunds (There are some older authorizations that exist with the Refund Indicators set. These authorizations are considered valid and will be allowed to exist until they expire.) and/or copies of notices to a third party, if such authorization has been granted by the taxpayer.

  3. Authorizations are recorded on the CAF by tax module. If an authorization applies to more than one module (defined as unique by Tax Period, Master File Tax Code (MFT) and, [for Employee Plans Master File (EPMF) and some Business Master File (BMF)] Plan Number), it will be input for each module to which it applies.

  4. Transactions are generated to the appropriate master file, based on the information input. Transaction code (TC) 960 is generated to Master File when authorization information is established or updated. TC 961 is generated to Master File when all authorizations for a module have been deleted. Formerly TC 962 was generated when there was a change to the CAF code sent to Master File, but that transaction code is obsolete as of January 2010. TC 960 and TC 961 will act more like "on/off" switches.

  5. CAF has incorporated the use of "Finalist" , a software package for perfecting domestic (US) addresses. Additional messages related to this process may now appear when using ADD3P or UPRCF.

2.4.7.2  (01-01-2010)
CAF Command Codes for Update

  1. KAFRMv (v = definer) — used to request the format for CCs KAFAD, UPTCF, UPRCF, or UPNCF.

    • KAFRM[[slashb]] gives the user KAFADT or KAFADM, depending upon the information found on the CAF via CC CFINK.

    • KAFRMT gives the user the UPTCF format.

    • KAFRMR gives the user the UPRCF format.

    • KAFRMN gives the user the UPNCF format.

  2. KAFAD is used to add to, or modify, authorization information on the CAF files, depending on the definer.

    • KAFADT— used when the third party is already present on the CAF files, but the taxpayer is not. Taxpayer information and appropriate authorizations are input.

    • KAFADM— used when both the taxpayer and the third party are already present on the CAF files. An authorization may be added, deleted, or revoked (replaced).

  3. UPTCF, UPRCF, UPNCF — used to modify either taxpayer or third party data, depending on the definer.

    • UPTCF (UPTCF) — used to update the taxpayer information.

    • UPRCF (UPRCF) — used to modify the third party information.

    • UPNCF (UPNCF) — used to merge two CAF numbers.

  4. FRM3P—used to request the format for CC ADD3P.

  5. ADD3P— used to establish a new third party on the CAF and assign a CAF number. This should only be done after doing proper research via CC RPINK.

  6. KAFMC—used to resolve CAF Number batch merge conflicts. This is a new screen as of July 2009.
