2.4.17.1  (01-01-2002)
General Information about Command Codes ADD24/34/48, ADC24/34/48, FRM34, DRT24/48

  1. This section provides instructions for inputting two-sided credit transfers. These adjustments were formerly prepared on Form 4256, Dual Debit/Credit Transfer (Document Code 34); Form 2424, Account Adjustment Voucher (Document Code 24); and Form 3809, Miscellaneous Adjustment Voucher (Document Code 48).

2.4.17.2  (01-01-2000)
Command Code Definitions:

  1. Preceding Command Codes are ACTON, SUMRY, TXMOD and ADDnn or ADCnn (nn = 24, 34 or 48). To research Accounts on the IDRS use CC SUMRY. When no Account is present on IDRS use CC ACTON to create a Dummy Account. TXMOD is then used to select the Primary Account information. ADDnn or ADCnn CC are used to generate a screen display for inputting and storing taxpayer and tax module information to the Adjustment Command Code.

  2. Adjustment Command Code are FRM34, DRT24 or DRT48. They are generated as a displayed format for inputting tax data for the adjustments.

2.4.17.3  (01-01-2002)
Definitions of Accounts

  1. Dummy Account — To perform a Credit Transfer an account must be on the IDRS file. If an account is not present, Command Code ACTON will create a Dummy Account so that tax module can be transferred.

  2. Primary and Secondary Accounts are used to complete a Credit Transfer. The Primary account is the tax module called up after inputting Command Code TXMOD. The Secondary Account is the other module involved in a two-sided adjustment

  3. Debit and Credit Side— the debit side of the adjustment is the tax module to which the debit primary transaction(s) will be posted. ADDnn Command Code is used to debt primary accounts. The credit side of the adjustment is the tax module to which the credit primary transaction(s) will be posted. ADCnn Command Code is used to credit primary account. Use either Command Codes ADCnn or ADDnn to complete a transfer.

2.4.17.4  (01-01-2002)
Command Code Input for Single Transfers

  1. Prior to making a credit transfer adjustment, research the tax module using CC SUMRY. At least one of the tax modules involved must be present on IDRS. A dummy tax module created with CC ACTON will satisfy this requirement. In addition, research the Secondary Account on IDRS prior to input of a two-sided credit transfer. After inputting ADDnn or ADCnn Command Code the Non-IDRS Indicator field display on the screen must specify the condition of the Secondary Account on the IDRS file, as determined by this prior research.

    1. CC TXMOD input selects the Primary Account and stores TIN, File Source, Name Control, MFT, Report/Plan Number (RPN) and Tax Period. The tax module must be on IDRS. Only MFT 76, 74 and 46 require a Report Plan Number (RPN) entry. The RPN field is not displayed on any other MFT.

    2. CC ADann must be preceded by CC TXMOD. D or C in the third position of this CC indicates whether the Primary Account stored by TXMOD is to be the Debit or Credit side of the adjustment. Document Code 24, 34 or 48 in the last two positions identifies the type of adjustment to be made. TIN, File Source, Name Control, MFT, RPN and Tax Period for the Secondary Account are input with this CC.

    3. Credit Transfer inputs are allowed for Dummy Accounts established on the IDRS TIF before posted information has been extracted to the TIF from the IRS Master Files. Checks are performed by CC ADC24/ADC48/ADD24/ADD48 to confirm that for adjustment attempts on Dummy Accounts, the account is posted to the IRS Master File (IMF, BMF, or IRAF). If the account is not established on the Master File or if the account (Valid SSN, Invalid SSN or EIN) is established but the Name Control on the TIF account does not match the current Master File Name Control, then an error response will be returned by CC ADC24/ADC48/ADD24/ADD48.

    4. Inputting CC ADC34 or ADD34 will generate the Adjustment Command Code FRM34. Use this format to transfer payment credits between modules within IMF or BMF when no secondary transaction is required; See also CREDIT FREEZE CODE— See Exhibit 2.4.17-3. Cont. (1) or to transfer a previously offset overpayment credit (IMF to BMF) between BMF modules (TC 792/790).

    5. Inputting CC ADD24 or ADC24 will generate the Adjustment Command Code DRT24, Use this format to transfer credits between files (IMF or BMF ) or when a secondary transaction code is required.

    6. Inputting CC ADD48 or ADC48 will generate the Adjustment Command Code DRT48. Use this format to transfer Overpayment Credit Elect, Refund Repayment, Substantiated Credit Allowances or Withholding/FICA Credit.

    7. All the above adjustments are two-sided. However, Doc Code 24 and 48 adjustments may be used to debit and credit the same tax module. Normal Command Code Input operations are followed.

  2. Case Controls

    1. Credit transfer adjustments may not be input if there is an open case control assigned to another employee on either side of the transfer. This kind of open case will have a base with Status of S, A or M only. However a base which is in Status B or C and is controlled to another employee does not prohibit a credit transfer.

    2. If the last control base on the module has the same terminal operator's employee number as the assignee number and if that base was updated to status C today, an additional control base will not be established, the input case control information will be ignored by the computer.

    3. If the input terminal operator has no control base established for the module being adjusted, a control base will generate automatically. Status Code "C" , Category Code "TPRQ" , Activity Code 34-CR-TRANS (if. Doc Code is 34).

    4. Only one case control is generated if the Primary and Secondary Account are the same tax module (Doc Code 24 & 48 only)

    5. If the input terminal operator has an open control base established for the module, the activity code " CRED-TRANS " or "34-CR-TRANS" will be generated unless another activity code is screen input.

    6. Use ACTON to control an adjustment case when immediate action cannot be taken, or if necessary when a control already exists in the module. When a module is not present on IDRS or if the module is a memo module, input of ACTON will create a dummy module and establish the case control; it will also generate TC 902 requesting the module from the master file onto IDRS. See IRM 2.3 Section 12 on Command Code ACTON.

    7. If TXMOD displays "ENTITY-CONTROL " in position 44 of line 3 or SUMRY displays an "E" in position 20 of line 1, the entity module contains an open control base which may be related to your case. Contact the controlling employee before taking action.

2.4.17.5  (01-01-2006)
Command Code Input for Multiple Transfers

  1. Multiple Credit Transfer Operations—where it is necessary to make multiple successive credit transfers involving the same tax module, the following procedures will simplify the operation by eliminating the TXMOD inquiry step and utilizing previously displayed data when inputting CC ADCnn or ADDnn.

    1. Establish the module into which or from which credits will be successively transferred as the Primary Account using CC TXMOD.

    2. After the first transfer has been completed following FRM34, DRT24 or DRT48. CC ADDnn or ADCnn must be input again for each transfer in order to supply the data for the Secondary Account. Only data from the Primary Account is stored from the prior command code. Multiple successive transfers must have the same document code; e.g., ADa24 may not follow FRM34 or DRT48.

    3. Input ADCnn or ADDnn on the "Request Completed" display of the previous transfer, utilizing the Secondary Account data already displayed and modifying the data by overlaying the NON-IDRS-IND.

    IF the NON-IDRS-IND Then
    is not an equal sign (=) Overlay using the Start-of-entry indicator (▸)
    equals a (A) or (@) displayed from the prior transfer) Overlay it with a blank

  2. Modify TIN/File Source, MFT, RPN, Tax Period and/or Name Control of the Secondary Account if it will be different from the Secondary Account of the previous transfer. The data fields may be changed by overlay but must remain in the same screen position. Before transmitting be sure to position the cursor after the 'Remarks' field.

    Note:

    A TC 762 should never be input to the IMF to adjust a TC 766 amount when the DLN of the TC 766 contains an "08" Doc. Code. A TC 760 should never be reversed with TC 762 unless the TC 760 was in error or the liability has been adjusted. All TC 760s will reflect a Doc. Code " 51" ; therefore, research must be done to identify those TC 760's relative to the rebate program.

2.4.17.6  (01-01-2000)
Command Codes ADD34 and ADC34

  1. Use one of these command codes to request the format for CC FRM34. CC TXMOD must precede this request. Use SUMRY to research account. At least one of the tax modules must be on IDRS from which to generate data for the Primary Account (the account addressed by the preceding CC TXMOD). (2) Valid Response — the format for CC FRM34 is returned. If ADD34 was input, the TIN, File Source, MFT , RPN and Tax Period from CC TXMOD which is the primary account are generated on line 1 and the TIN, File Source, MFT, RPN, Tax Period and Name Control from ADD34 are generated on line 11. If ADC34 was input, the primary account's TIN, File Source, MFT, RPN and Tax Period generate from CC TXMOD are on line 11 and the TIN, File Source, MFT, RPN, Tax Period and Name Control from ADC34 are generated on line 1.

2.4.17.7  (01-01-2002)
Command Code FRM34

  1. Use this command code to transfer payment credits (as on Form 4256) between modules on one Master File (IMF or BMF). See also CREDIT FREEZE CODE See Exhibit 2.4.17-3. Cont. The format for CC FRM34 is generated as a response to CC ADD34 or ADC34 and is not keyed in. Account and module identification data is generated from CC TXMOD or ADa34 and may not be altered. CC FRM34 causes debit and credit transactions to be generated to the applicable accounts and modules on the Master Files, effecting the transfer of credits
