2.4.27.1  (01-01-2004)
Assignment Number Introduction

  1. Each Taxpayer Delinquency Analysis (TDA) and Taxpayer Delinquency Investigation (TDI) account is assigned to either an individual, group of individuals, or a specific function to be worked. The accounts may be real (established on the TIF from Master file data) or dummy, (established on the Taxpayer Information File (TIF) without data from master file). The assignment number, or ASSIGNMENT-NUM, is used to indicate where, or to whom, the account is assigned.

2.4.27.2  (01-01-2004)
Assignment Number Composition

  1. The ASSIGNMENT-NUM is made up of 8 digits. These digits are divided into 4 sets of 2 digits each.

2.4.27.3  (01-01-2004)
Assignment Number Format

  1. The Format of the ASSIGNMENT-NUM is as follows:

    Assignment number format

    Assignment number format

2.4.27.3.1  (01-01-2004)
Assignment Number - AO

  1. The AO or Area Office is defined in IRM 2.24.1 , Document 6209 and IRM 2.4.9.

2.4.27.3.2  (01-01-2004)
Assignment Number - TO

  1. The TO or Territory Office (see Document 6209 and IRM 2. 4. 9 for explanation).

2.4.27.3.3  (01-01-2004)
Assignment Number - OS (BG)

  1. The OS or Organizational Segment contains Division/Branch/Group/Function/Etc., may also be referred to as BG or Branch Group, values include:

    • 00-89 see Document 6209 , ADP and IDRS Information, Sec. 11–2.

    • 91 Inspection (Internal Audit)

    • 94-95 Employee Plans

    • 96-97 Exempt Organizations

2.4.27.3.4  (01-01-2004)
Assignment Number - EE

  1. The EE is the Employee Number, for details, see Document 6209 and IRM 2. 4. 9.

2.4.27.4  (01-01-2004)
Assignment Number Generation

  1. a) The first 4 digits (AOTO) of the ASSIGNMENT-NUM is generated systemically as follows:

    1. From any pending address change, if present.

    2. From the controlling location code of the account, or where the account is being worked, if present.

    3. From the primary location code, or where the account is being stored.

  2. The AOTO of the ASSIGNMENT-NUM is generated manually by use of real-time inputs. The real-time inputs are used to input initial assignment numbers and update existing assignment numbers.

2.4.27.5  (01-01-2004)
Assignment Number Source

  1. Weekend Analysis: batch programs WTU23 for TDA (an account in service center status 22, 24, or 26) and WTU25 for TDI (an account in master file status 03) may both update the assignment number.

  2. Weekend Maintenance: when all delinquencies on an account have been resolved (not in TDA or TDI status), the assignment number is changed to AOTO0000 by WTU29.

  3. Batch updates: accounts assigned to Integrated Collection System (ICS), Automated Collection System (ACS), or Automated Substitute for Return (ASFR) may update the assignment number by using batch update programs including IDS03.

  4. Terminal inputs: assignment numbers may be updated manually by using Command Codes ASGNI, ASGNB, STAUP(STATI, STATB), INCHG/BNCHG, and DOALL.

2.4.27.6  (01-01-2004)
Assignment Number Retention

  1. An assignment number history is retained until the account is removed from the TIF.

2.4.27.7  (01-01-2005)
ASGNI/ASGNB Description

  1. ASGNI/ASGNB has five functions that may be used with accounts that are present on the TIF. Multiple functions may be input on a single request screen. These functions include:

    • Controlling and updating TDA and TDI assignment numbers.

    • Posting Notice Codes for subsequent processing by weekly analysis.

    • Posting Alpha Case Codes for subsequent processing by weekly analysis.

    • Posting Determined Grade Levels for subsequent processing by weekly analysis.

    • Requesting a printed TDI supplement.

  2. Definer 'F' when used with ASGNI and ASGNB produces a formatted screen which allows for multiple inputs. Definers Q, D, A, L and C allows for single input.

2.4.27.8  (01-01-2005)
ASGNI/ASGNB Notice Code Description

  1. Notice codes include the following:

    • "A" , "U" , and " I" accelerate TDI issuance.

    • "T" issues a duplicate TDI.

    • "R" re-issues a TDI notice.

    • "D" with "nn" number of cycles is used to delay issuance of a notice or a TDI for the account for " nn" cycles (nn = 00-15).

    • If an account is to be both delayed and then accelerated at the end of the delay period, input no more than 1 acceleration code in addition to Notice code "D" and its associated cycle.

    • "X" is used to eliminate a previous Notice code of "U" due to input of an address change.

2.4.27.9  (01-01-2005)
ASGNI/ASGNB Alpha Case Code Description

  1. Alpha Case codes "Ca" (a=A-Z) causes a case code to be generated and appended to the TDI Compliance section of the TIF. Collection codes include:

    Collection Code Case Code Collection Code Case Code Collection Code Case Code
    CA 3949 CJ REJC CS ****
    CB 4298 CK UNPO CT ****

2.4.27.10  (01-01-2010)
ASGNI/ASGNB Determined Grade Level Description

  1. Determined grade level "G" and associated grade levels (00,09,11-13) are input to override the computer generated predicted grade level. Grade levels are:

    • 09 = Grade 9

    • 11 = Grade 11

    • 12 = Grade 12

    • 13 = Grade 13

    • 00= Other

2.4.27.11  (01-01-2005)
ASGNI/ASGNB TDI Supplement Description

    • "C" - requested for SCCB

    • "A" - requested for ACS

    • "R" - requested for RP

    • "F" - requested for CFf

    • "E" - requested for EXAM

2.4.27.12  (01-01-2005)
ASGNI/ASGNB TDI/TDA Definers

  1. ASGNI/ASGNB definers include:

    • "F" produces a formatted input screen for ASGNI/ASGNB.

    • "H" produces a help screen with brief explanations of the formatted screen fields.

    • "V" produces a screen with current version information.

    • "D" is used after TDINQ, ENMOD, TXMOD, or SUMRY and if input with a valid BGEE and AOTO, will assign the account just accessed by one of the above command codes to the assignment number requested.

    • "Q" is used after TDINQ, ENMOD, TXMOD, OR SUMRY and will assign the account just accessed to assignment number AOTO7000 (the Queue).

    • "A" is used after TDINQ, ENMOD, TXMOD, or SUMRY and will accelerate an account to full TDI.

    • "L" is used after TDINQ, ENMOD, TXMOD, or SUMRY and if input with a two digit number of cycles will delay action on the account the number of cycles input.

    • "C" is used after TDINQ, ENMOD, TXMOD, or SUMRY and if input with a two digit number of cycles will accomplish the functions of both "A" and "L"
