2.4.9.1  (01-01-2009)
Overview: Entity Changes

  1. Entity changes may be input if the taxpayer's account is on the IDRS TIF. The TIF contains selected taxpayer accounts extracted from the Master Files or created to support Collection and Examination case processing for Non-Master File accounts. Entity changes for Master File related accounts (IMF, BMF and EPMF) may also be input if a Dummy entity is present on the IDRS TIF.

2.4.9.2  (01-01-2009)
Utilization of IDRS for Entity Changes

  1. Determination of availability—If the taxpayer's TIN is known, Command Code ENMOD will indicate if the taxpayer's entity information is on the IDRS file. Command Code NAMES and NAMEE may be used for entity research purposes in cases where only taxpayer's name and address are known.

  2. Accounts which will accept entity changes—Entity changes can be made to accounts with the following types of entity data:

    1. Full Entities—Accounts for which posted entity data has been extracted from the IMF, BMF or NMF or created for NMF by CC's AMNON, TDIRQ or NMFTM.

    2. Dummy Entities—Accounts for which no data has yet been (or can not be) extracted from Master Files. Entity changes are not allowed for NMF Dummy entities.

2.4.9.3  (01-01-2009)
Command Code ENREQ

  1. Command Code ENREQ with a blank definer is keyed in after a response to ENMOD indicates that the entry is on the file. Response to " ENREQ" is a generated INCHG format for IMF accounts or BNCHG format for BMF, NMF and EPMF accounts.

  2. Command Code ENREQ with "R" definer is keyed in after response to ENMOD indicates that the entry is on the filer. Response to "ENREQR" is a generated IRCHG for IMF accounts and BRCHG format for BMF and EPMF accounts.

  3. The format will be completed in a prescribed manner with the elements to effect the entity change.

2.4.9.4  (01-01-2009)
Command Code ENREQ Validation

  1. Invalid data will be indicated on the screen display according to the following guidelines:

    1. When individual data fields contain invalid entries, the applicable format, complete with all entries previously keyed in by the operator, will be redisplayed. The asterisk will be displayed following the invalid field.

    2. When the invalidity involves an inconsistency between two or more data fields, an asterisk will follow each interrelated field.

    3. Where the invalidity involves the omission of data in one or more fields requiring multiple entries, the format will be redisplayed. An asterisk will follow only erroneous fields, which are included in the input data.

    4. To correct an invalid entry in fields containing asterisks, input the correct data as an overlay on the erroneous information. Re-release the display.

    5. Every TIN and name control that is input will be validated by NAP processing before the proper input screen format is returned and completed and the transaction released for posting to the master files.

    6. If the full account (not dummy) is on the Taxpayer Information File (TIF) the validation is on the TIF.

    7. If the account on the TIF is a dummy or can not be determined to be established, the TIN and name control will be validated against the NAP.

2.4.9.5  (01-01-2009)
Error Messages and Responses for CC ENREQ, BNCHG, BRCHG, INCHG and IRCHG

  1. EOREQ REQUIRES BMF EIN

  2. INVALID VALUE FOR TC-000-INTEND-IND

  3. LAP/NAP ACCESS CODE INVALID

  4. LAP/NAP ACCOUNT CODE INVALID

  5. REQUEST DENIED - PRIOR CC ENMOD WAS A REMOTE REQUEST

  6. REQUEST DENIED - TC000 ON ITIN NOT ALLOWED

  7. TIN NOT ON LAP - TEMPORARILY ADDED

  8. ACCOUNT IS ALREADY ON FILE—The account was created through some other source subsequent to ENMOD response and before completion of ENREQ.

  9. PRIOR CMND CD MUST BE ENMOD—ENREQ was input but not preceded by ENMOD.

  10. ID INFO CHANGED-RESTART—Generated data consisting of TIN and name control on line 1 of display has been altered. Restart with ENMOD and ENREQ.

  11. INVALID CMND CD ROUTED TO ENREQ—System error contact CSA.

  12. MEMO ACCT-MODULE PRESENT—CC ENREQ has been attempted for a type of entity, which will not accept entity changes.

  13. NON-DUMMY NMF ACCT MUST BE ON TIF—NMF entity change processing requires that a full account be present on the TIF.

  14. TIF NC INV( )—The name control on the TIF account does not meet standard validity criteria. See IRM 2.4.8. for dummy accounts use CC ACTON to correct TIF account name control. If condition ever occurs on full account (real) account advise System Control Point.

  15. TIF FILE NOT AVAILABLE—The TIF file that is used to validate TC 000 EIN's is not available at the moment. Re-input the entity.

  16. TIN EXISTS ON MF—The TIN and name control are valid on the NAP and the TC 000 INTEND IND is set indicating that a TC 000 transaction is about to be entered. These conditions are in conflict.

  17. INVALID TIN TYPE ON NAP REQUEST REC—The wrong type of TIN is input (example EIN with "R" , the valid codes are blank space or "P" , asterisk, V, W or X). This response indicates a program error-notify the IDRS Support Staff.

2.4.9.6  (01-01-2009)
Command Codes INCHG, IRCHG, BNCHG or BRCHG

  1. Use the Command Codes INCHG, IRCHG, BNCHG or BRCHG to enter an entity change to an account on the TIF. Format and Command Code are generated by CC ENREQ. The results are a pending transaction to the TIF, and output transactions to the BMF, IMF or EPMF as applicable; or an update to entity data on an NMF account.

  2. Command Codes INCHG, IRCHG, BNCHG nor BRCHG can be input to Memo Entities (those entities on IDRS that are in a re-sequence condition).

  3. These Command Codes are designed to initiate an entity change with applicable entity data entered on a standard format received from the ENREQ Command Code. They enable most entity information to be input directly through IDRS.

  4. Command Code IRCHG is not a restricted use Command Code.

  5. Command Code BRCHG is a restricted use command code. BRCHG is restricted for the use of the Entity Control Unit in the Service Center per National Office Memo to security. Transaction Code 011 and 053 cases may only be entered through Command Code BRCHG. Command Code BRCHG can perform all the entity change processing that Command Code BNCHG can do.

  6. The procedural instructions for entity change transactions are maintained in IRM 3.13.36 EPMF Account Numbers.

2.4.9.7  (01-01-2009)
Types of Changes

  1. The entity changes, which can be effected by direct input, are divided into two categories; those changes employed to add new or update obsolete information and those of a corrective or remedial nature. Generally, the first category is available to designated personnel in both field and service center functions. A specialized group or groups in the service center employ the second category.

2.4.9.7.1  (01-01-2009)
Changes Permissible by Service Center and Field Offices

  1. Change or correction of address (including zip).

  2. Correction of name because of missing or change in filing status.

  3. Change in name due to an adjustment (e.g. separate to joint status).

  4. Correction, addition or deletion of filing requirement codes, filing status code or spouse's SSN.

  5. Miscellaneous changes which do not significantly alter the basic character of the entity, such as correction of typographical errors or omissions in name or address of the entity.

  6. Change of SSN.

2.4.9.7.2  (01-01-2009)
Changes Specifically Restricted to Designated Service Center Personnel

  1. Change of EIN.

  2. Change in basic name identity, e.g. from partnership to corporate status or from "Smith" to "Jones" (This does not apply to CC INCHG).

  3. Scrambled SSN Codes.

  4. Master File Account deletion.

2.4.9.7.3  (01-01-2009)
Transaction Code and DLN

  1. In most cases a transaction code will not be entered. IDRS will generate the transaction code from the data elements entered on the INCHG or BNCHG formats. IDRS will also generate the DLN. The entity change will receive a partial DLN and be in "EP" pending status until quality reviewed. After the quality reviewer releases the entity change, it changes to PN status and the remainder of the DLN will be generated. An IDRS Transaction Record is produced daily for each Entity Change and will be maintained by Return Files.

2.4.9.7.4  (01-01-2009)
Non Master File Accounts

  1. An IDRS NMF account is unique in that, rather than representing a computer maintained record in one of the Master Files, it is a Service Center based record, established for TDA, TDI or AIMS processing. Consequently the data flow and the systemic techniques employed to update an IDRS NMF entity are somewhat different than those for other types of accounts contained in the system.

    1. The status change of an NMF entity change pending transaction from EP or PEND to a "posted" condition does not indicate that the change has been effected. This merely indicates that a document has been generated to be routed to the responsible SC function so that they can manually update, or confirm the change to the ULC.

    2. Account Number changes on NMF accounts require the manual repositioning of the entities within IDRS. The account must be deactivated at the old account number location (TC020) and re-established at its new location.

2.4.9.7.5  (01-01-2009)
Daily Transaction Register

  1. Only Doc Code 63 transactions such as Address changes, Primary Name Line change, Account Number change, (TC 020) may appear on the Daily Transaction Register. Only those transactions where the Transaction Register Indicator has not been set or generated to a value of "1" (suppress issuance value) will appear.

2.4.9.7.6  (01-01-2009)
Association-Input:

  1. Physical association of the entity change source documents with the printed IDRS Transaction Record (5147) is required for several types of entity changes: Form 1128 must be associated with the TC 053 and 059 Transaction Records, Form 8279 must be associated with the TC 060,061,064 and 066 Transaction Records, Form 8274 must be associated with the TC 070 Transaction Record, Form 2553 must be associated with the TC 090 Transaction Record and Form 2553 must be associated with the TC 094 Transaction Records. To make possible the post input association of the source document with the generated F5147 IDRS Transaction Record containing the DLN assigned to the transaction, input of a three digit Sequence Number (CC BNCHG range 001–999) is required with TC 070 and 090.

    1. The terminal operator assigns a three-digit number to each input transaction beginning with 001 with the first input each day. Separate sequence number series are assigned to each type of input. The operator records the Sequence Number on the source document.

    2. Daily the operator places the source documents for each type of work in ascending sequence Number order, in a separate folder marked with the input date, operator employee number and type of work. The folders (after any Quality Review operation is completed) are forwarded to be associated with the IDRS Transaction Records—which for association input are printed in output sort sequence by type of work, input date, employee number and sequence number instead of by DLN.

2.4.9.8  (01-01-2009)
Codes and Abbreviations

  1. See Document 6209 for specific reference information on some of the following entity data:

    1. Standard State Abbreviations and District Office Codes

    2. Employment Codes (BMF)—Employment Codes identify employers who are other than normal business employers.

    3. Filing Status Code (IMF)—Filing Status Codes identify the current marital filing status of the individual taxpayer.

    4. Filing Requirement Codes—Filing Requirement Codes are posted to the Entity Section of the Master File to identify the type of returns a taxpayer must file. They are also used to identify the types of forms the IRS must mail to the taxpayer.

2.4.9.9  (01-01-2009)
Error Messages and Responses

  1. Invalid data will be indicated on the screen display according to the following guidelines:

    1. When individual data fields contain invalid entries, the applicable format, complete with all entries previously keyed in by the operator, will be redisplayed. The asterisk will be displayed immediately following the literal and invalid input data field.

    2. Where the invalidity involves an inconsistency between two or more data fields, each interrelated field will be followed by an asterisk.

    3. Where the invalidity involves the omission of data in one or more fields requiring multiple entries (e.g. year entry in conjunction with Primary Name entry) the format will be redisplayed. An asterisk will follow only erroneous fields that are included in the input data.

    4. To correct an invalid entry in fields containing asterisks, input the correct data as an overlay on the erroneous information. Re-release the display.

Only valid entry is ‘Y ’ (Yes).
‘N’ is the default value.
Only valid with TC's 000 and 014.
For the entry of ‘Y’ to be valid, an address must be entered, either manually or with the entry of ‘Y ’ in the DUP-ADDR-IND field, in the previous INCHG screen. An entry of ‘Y’ in the DUP-ADDR-IND field without an address being entered in the previous INCHG transaction will return an error message.
When a ‘Y’ is entered in the DUP-ADDR-IND field, the address itself will not appear until the INCHG has been transmitted and a ‘REQUEST COMPLETED’ screen returned.
The DUP-ADDR-IND can only be used with consecutive INCHG transactions. The point of it was to allow the automatic entry of an address if many INCHG's in a row were being sent to the same third party address.
NOTE: You must be careful when using this indicator to avoid sending an INCHG to the wrong address which could result in a possible disclosure issue.
11 FS   Filing Status Code.

IMF Name Line Change

This example deals with changing Name Lines on IMF. Changes can be made to correct typographical errors, as well as to affect substantive changes In the PRIMARY NAME, or to change, add or delete CONTINUATION OF PRIMARY NAME information. For Civil Penalty cases, see Reference MFT and PRIMARY NAME criteria in General Format information.

Screen Display:

This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. Please click the link to view the image.

Specific Notes:

Item Description and Validity
1 Only the most current Address and CONTINUATION OF PRIMARY NAME are maintained on the IMF. Therefore, do not change the CONTINUATION OF PRIMARY NAME to reflect what was correct for a prior year unless it is also applicable to the most current period.
2 If a CONTINUATION OF PRIMARY NAME constitutes a part of the taxpayer entity for the current year, it must be entered even though it is unchanged.
3 If only a CONTINUATION OF PRIMARY NAME is being changed, the First Name must be entered even though it is unchanged. New Name Control and Year Digits must also be present.
4 To eliminate an unwanted CONTINUATION OF PRIMARY NAME, enter the PRIMARY NAME, unchanged and leave the CONTINUATION OF PRIMARY NAME blank.
5 Care should be a exercised when making name corrections involving the Validity of the account, i.e., changes that affect name controls. A re-sequencing and merging of an account's condition may arise.
6 The IMF PRIMARY NAME data must fit into the 35 spaces allotted for first name. It may be necessary to reduce the name data to comply with this requirement. Note # 7 lists steps to take until space requirements are met.
7 Reduce middle name(s) to initial(s).
Reduce secondary taxpayer's first name to an initial.
Reduce primary taxpayer's first name to an initial.
8 A right hand bracket to the left of the surname is required to indicate where the Name Control begins. A right hand bracket must be entered to the right of the surname if a suffix follows the surname and the surname is less than four characters. These brackets must NOT have a space before or after them. Exhibit 2.4.9-5
8 The Filing Status Code must be present.
9 Other changes may be made with a Name Line Change.
10 If ENMOD indicated an IRA indicator of "1" (Primary taxpayer has an IRA) or " 2" (Secondary taxpayer has an IRA), and the entity contains both husband and wife first names, and the order of the first names is being changed, make certain that the IRA indicator is consistent with the name change.

IMF—040, 041 to Change SSN or Nameline

These transactions are normally initiated only by SC entity control function personnel; however, it is occasionally input by personnel in other areas. The exact circumstances under which personnel other than entity control personnel will input these transactions are defined in procedural manuals for the various functional areas.

Screen Display:

This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. Please click the link to view the image.

Specific Notes:

Item Description and Validity
1 This example deals with two transaction codes which specifically bypass the Social Security DM–1 tape (a tape containing all valid SSN-Name combinations) to post an entity change of SSN and/or Name Control. The TC 040 directs to the valid segment of the Master File. The TC 041 directs to the invalid segment of the Master File. A simulated name change may be input to correct the validity on the Master File to agree with the SSA tape.
2 All input transactions are passed against the Social Security Tape for comparison to determine validity, a match directs the input transaction to the valid segment of the Master File and a mismatch directs the input transaction to the invalid segment.
3 Infrequently, the SSA is required to remove a name for a given SSN from its records. If an account has been established under the SSN-Name, transactions cannot reach that account after removal of that name from SSA tape . A TC 040 would be necessary to bypass SSA tape to reach this entity. A simulated name change will result in the revalidation of the SSN-Name and the account will be re-sequenced to the invalid segment of the IMF where transactions may address it. A TC 040 may be used when the validity of the Master File name is known to be valid.
4 It is possible for an account with a valid SSN-Name to be on the Invalid segment of the IMF. This condition is due to failure of an account to merge when re-sequenced from the Invalid to the Valid Segment. The account is directed back to its original slot on the Invalid Segment. A TC 041 is necessary, to bypass the DM–1 tape to reach this entity. The SSN may be changed to a Temporary number that will enable adjusting transactions to post to the account. A TC 041 may be used when the validity is known to be invalid.
5 TC 040/041 input must contain an SSN and/or Name Line change. The only other data which may be input are Spouse SSN, Filing Status Code, Post Delay Cycle Code and CONTINUATION OF PRIMARY NAME, File Source of SSN must be blank for TC 040 and " *" for TC 041.

Exhibit 2.4.9-7

Specific Notes:

Item Description and Validity
1 Only the most current address is maintained on the IMF; therefore, DO NOT change the address to reflect what was correct for a prior year unless it is also applicable to the most current period.
2 Only the most current address is maintained on the IMF; therefore, DO NOT change the address to reflect what was correct for a prior year unless it is also applicable to the most current period.
3 When both the location address and the P.O. Box or mailing address are present then, the location address information will be entered on the CONTINUATION OF PRIMARY NAME and the P.O. Box or mailing address will be entered in the Street Address Line. Abbreviate all words of the address subject to the abbreviation's list in General Information.
4 If the taxpayer does not have a street address, city, state and zip code are acceptable input.
5 A Major City Code may be used in place of City Name and State. See Document 7475 for Major City Codes. Street Address and Zip Code must be entered. When a major city code is used on input the expanded city, state version of the major city will be returned on the valid screen response.

IMF—Establishment of an Account on the Master File

This example deals with establishing a new account on the Master File. In order to input this transaction a dummy entity module must be established under the correct SSN and Name Control. The module can be established using CC ENREQ. However, there may still be instances when the use of CC ACTON may be warranted. If inputting a temporary SSN, an asterisk (*) must also be input after the invalid number.

IMF—Removal of an Account from Master File

This example deals with the deletion of an account from the IMF. Extreme care should be taken in determining if a record should be deleted from the IMF. The record deleted should be incorrect and have no value or effect on accounting control or reports.

Screen Display

This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen. Please click the link to view the image.

Specific Notes:

Item Description and Validity
1 An SSN change cannot be made by deleting a record from the IMF and then adding the record back to the file under a different SSN. Instead, the SSN change procedures should be used.
2 When an entity without Tax Modules is deleted from the IMF, the contents are physically removed from the IMF. If there are Tax Modules present in the account, the Filing Requirement code is changed to 8 by the computer. This prevents future mail outs and module establishment, but does not prevent subsequent posting to existing modules.

BMF—Removal of an Account/EO Section from the Master File

This example deals with a deletion of an erroneous account or an erroneously established Exempt Organization Section from the BMF. Extreme care should be taken in the determination to delete an account. When the Master File Account has only entity information established without any tax modules, a TC 020 will physically delete the account from the BMF. When the Master File Account has tax modules established, the account will not be deleted from the BMF, but the Filing Requirement Codes will be changed to "8" to indicate that the account is inactive. A TC 022 will delete only the Exempt Organization Section from the BMF.
