Overview of Command Codes REQ77, FRM77 and FRM7A

  1. Command Code REQ77 is used to request a format to input a transaction normally input on Form 3177, Notice of Action for Entry on the Master Files/IDRS, or a related document. The format requested would be either Command Code FRM77 or FRM7A format.

  2. Command Code REQ77 with a blank definer will result in the FRM77 format.

  3. Command Code REQ77 with a definer of A will result in the FRM7A format.

  4. If no taxpayer account information (TIN, File Source, MFT, Tax Period and Name Control) is input with REQ77 with a blank definer then a prior Command Code entry is necessary. Command Code ENMOD or SUMRY should be used if the input transaction changes entity information. Command Code TXMOD should be used if the transaction addresses a tax module. ADJ54 and ACTON, as well as FRM77 itself, can also be used as the prior Command Code. If the taxpayer account information is entered with REQ77, no prior Command Code is necessary. No prior Command Code is used when REQ77 is input with an A definer. If a Transaction Code 122 or 126 is to be generated, the taxpayer information must be entered with CC REQ77.

  5. Command Code FRM77 will generate one transaction.

  6. Command Code FRM7A will generate up to twenty-one transactions, one transaction for each line of valid input. The file source of all transactions input on one screen must be the same.

  7. Command Code FRM77 will generate a dummy entity module when the taxpayer entity module is not present on the Taxpayer Information File (TIF) and the name control matches the NAP name control, and the plan number matches the NAP plan number (EPMF account). If a transaction addresses a tax module that is not present, a dummy tax module will be generated. The dummy entity and tax modules will not be generated for NMF transactions nor will they for transactions that fail the additional NAP and Individual Master File On-Line (IMFOL) or Business Master File On-Line (BMFOL) validations (see #8).

  8. If the input is for a BMF or an IMF/MFT–30 and there is no tax module match on the TIF or there is a 2 in the MOD-MEMO-CD, the IMFOL/BMFOL will be accessed by the NAP to see if there is a match on the master file. If not, the transaction will not be generated unless it is one that can establish a tax module (TC 460, 468, 469, 470, 474, 480, 500, 520 (CC 61–67, 81, 83, 85), 540, 560, 582, 810, 930, 960 or 971 (with selected action codes). These transactions must then pass additional NAP validations using the ADDITIONAL-FIELD-IND-GRP before they will be generated. See IRM 2.4.19.2 #4, for error messages resulting from these validation checks.

  9. Transactions input through IDRS can be identified by the Julian date in the DLN. It is the current processing date plus 400.

  10. A return to prior Command Code TXMOD, ENMOD or SUMRY may be accomplished with entry of the Command Code alone.

  11. Transactions will have the TIN and Name Control matched with the data present on the TIF. If the Name Control does not match the TIF, an appropriate error message will be returned. If this is a dummy account with a 3 in the MEMO-CD of the BASIC-ENTITY-REC, it will be treated as a full account. If the Name Control matches and it is a dummy account (MEMO-CD 2), the TIN and Name Control will be matched against Master File data on the NATIONAL ACCOUNT PROFILE (NAP) unless the transaction is 971 or 972 with action code 63. If this is an EPMF account (regardless if a dummy or a full account) the plan number will be matched against the NAP plan number. It will work as follows:

    1. FRM77 will access the NAP and matching will be done from the information present, and either the transaction will be accepted or an appropriate error message will be returned.

    2. FRM7A will not access the NAP. If NAP validation is required, an error message will be returned to the operator requesting the transaction be reinput using FRM77.

  12. FRM77 may be used as a prerequisite of Command Codes ACTON and DOALL. Because of the protected fields, user should move cursor to the " home position" (row 1, column 1) and clear the screen when using FRM77 as a prerequisite.

Error Responses

  1. Error messages will be displayed in inverse video on line 14 of FRM77. For Command Code FRM7A some error messages will appear at the end of the relevant line and some on line 24.

NOTE: 1) An asterisk in the file column indicates the transaction is valid for that file; a dash indicates that the transaction is not valid. TC 971 and 972 are valid for NMF only if the 971/151-CD is 043, 057, 063, 065–069, 157, 163, 200–214, 260-261, 605, 610-629, 663-665.
NOTE: 2) Transactions which have an asterisk next to them are entity transactions. A TC 470 or 472 will be treated as an entity if the closing code is 97 and the MFT and tax period are zeroes. A TC 971 or 972 will be treated as an entity transaction if the 971/151–CD is 050, 051, 084–087, 192, 198, 265, 281, 298, 334–338, 341–349, 360, 362, 363, 381-385, 501, 504-506, 522 (IMF only), 523-525, 529, 647, 648, 688 and the MFT code and Tax Period are zeroes.
