Guidelines for Domestic Mailing and Location Addresses

  1. Use the following guidelines when inputting the mailing or location street address:

    1. Do not leave a blank space between the house or building number and an alpha suffix. For example:

      Organization submits: 1234 B North Street
      Input: 1234B North St

    2. Input a house or building number when possible. If no number is present, use a building name. Otherwise, contact the organization.

    3. Always input the suite, apartment number, room number, etc. at the end of the street address line.

    4. If present, always input the street suffix; e.g., street, drive, lane, and terrace.

    5. If present, always input the street directional; e.g., North, South, East, and West.

    6. If the address contains a fraction, input as a slash (/).

    7. If the address contains a hyphen between two numbers, omit the hyphen and leave a space. For example:

      Organization submits: 289–01 Main St
      Input: 289 01 Main St

      Note:

      Do not delete the hyphen if it indicates a range or is part of an apartment number.

    8. If there are two directional in a street address, abbreviate the first directional and leave the second spelled out.

      Organization submits: North South Main St
      Input: N South Main St

      Exception:

      If the address contains NW, NE, SW, SE, do not spell out any part of the directional.

    9. Change RFD and RD (rural delivery) to RR. Delete any leading zeros.

    10. Always enter "and" in place of the symbol "&."

    11. If the address contains a decimal, convert the decimal to a fraction. For example:

      Organization submits: 1.5 miles south of Hwy 19
      Input: 1 1/2 miles south of Hwy 19

    12. If no street address or P.O. Box is provided by the organization, input the word "Local" on the street address line. This should only occur in very small towns.

    13. If the city and state are missing or incomplete and the ZIP code is present, research the ZIP Code Directory, USPS Publication 65, to determine the city and state. If the city and state cannot be determined from the ZIP Code Directory, the envelope if attached, or telephone contact, destroy the EIN application.

    14. If the ZIP code is missing, research the ZIP Code Directory, and enter the ZIP code.

    15. Optional: If the city is a major city, input the Major City Code in place of the city and state on both the mailing and location addresses. Enter the Major City Code, two commas and then the ZIP code.

3.13.12.6.18.3  (01-01-2015)
EO Status Code 01

  1. When an organization is granted an exemption, Cincinnati EO Determinations or NO SE:T:EO will input the information on the BMF to create the EO account, or add the exemption data to an already existing account. When Status Codes 01 or 02 are present on the BMF/EO account, they indicate an exemption was granted to the organization. IRC 501(c)(3), 501(c)(9), 501(c)(17), 501(c)(20), and 501(c)(29) organizations are required to notify the Service they are seeking tax-exempt status; therefore, they must file a Form 1023 or 1024 as applicable with EO Determinations.

    Exception:

    Churches, conventions of churches, integrated auxiliaries of churches, and public charities with average annual gross receipts of less than $5,000 are not required to apply for tax-exempt status.

    Note:

    IRC 501(c) organizations other than IRC 501(c)(3), IRC 501(c)(9), IRC 501(c)(17), IRC 501(c)(20) and IRC 501(c)(29) organizations are not required to file an application for exemption, though they may do so. They are considered exempt even though they do not apply for exemption as long as they are filing the required annual information return.

    Note:

    Beginning January 2004 a Form 990-T or a payment for a Form 990-T will automatically post to an account in EO Status 01-02 if the name control and EIN on the return or payment match the name control and EIN on Master File. A Form 990-T filing requirement will be added to the module.

  2. Status Code 01 can be input by Entity Control from a pilot voucher for a group exemption or from research of EDS.

  3. If Forms 990, 990-T or 5578 are received with a GEN, or you know they are a subordinate of a group ruling, use the pilot voucher to create the EO section on the BMF and to add the subordinate to the GEN File.

    Note:

    Check the SGRI to ensure the subordinate was not removed from the group ruling before creating the EO section. If the SGRI indicates the subordinate was removed but this is a final 990 or 990-T use the pilot voucher to create the EO section. If this is not the final 990 or 990-T, place the account in Status 40.

  4. If research of EDS on first screen indicates status 01, 06 or 09, update the BMF for the EO section, using the procedures beginning in IRM 3.13.12.9.

    Caution:

    If the status code on EDS is other than 01, 06 or 09, do not update the EO Status Code to 01.

  5. If the entity is an Non-Integrated Auxiliary (NIA), the Form 990 FRC should be 01, with SS 03 and Type of Foundation Code 10. Research CC ENMOD to see if the account is on the BMF.

    If Then
    The account is on the BMF, Add the EO section with CC EOREQ/CC EOCHG, Doc. Code 80, TC 016, Definer Codes ABC and add the EO data from the pilot voucher (Form 2363A). The following fields must be added from the Form 2363A: subsection, foundation code (if applicable), classification code, affiliation code, type of organization, status code and date, ruling date, deductibility code and year, new GEN, pension plan, employment code, FYM, NTEE, NAICS code and filing requirements.
    The account is not on the BMF, Add the account to the BMF. Use CCs EOREQ/EOCHG with Doc. Code 80, TC 000 and use the pilot voucher or EDS as the source information to update the BMF.
    The ruling date is available, Use the ruling date when returning the EO Status to 01.

3.13.12.6.18.4  (01-01-2015)
EO Status Code 06

  1. Use Status Code 06 to create an EO section on the BMF for an account which is a state operated university or college, government entity or a Re-insurance company required to file Form 990-T for unrelated business income.

    Note:

    To identify a Re-insurance company check the top of Form 990-T for the words "Re-insurance Company" or similar wording. If unable to determine whether the 990-T is filing for a re-insurance company, put the account in the appropriate status code.

  2. When a Form 990-T is received for this type of entity and research shows it does not have an exemption, use EO Status 06 to add an EO section to the EIN on the BMF.

  3. Input this status code with a TC 012 or 016 using CC EOREQ/CC EOCHG. If a return is received without an EIN and research does not locate an EIN, assign an EIN.

  4. The following items must be present for EO Status 06:

  1. Status Codes 18 and 19 are input by Cincinnati when a private foundation exemption is revoked. The organization is required to continue filing the Form 990-PF return.

  2. Status 18 is used when the organization is a trust. Cincinnati will change the Type of Organization to a 6 and the Subsection Code to a 92. The type of foundation code will be deleted by the BMF. The organization will be required to file both a Form 990-PF and a Form 1041.

  3. Status Code 19 is used when the organization is a corporation. The organization will be required to file both a Form 990-PF and a Form 1120.

3.13.12.6.18.10  (01-01-2015)
EO Status Code 20

  1. Status Code 20 ("Terminated/Out of Business" ) is used when the organization with an individual ruling is terminated or out of business. The filing requirement for all EO returns will be updated to zero automatically.

    1. This status can be input by the campus when correspondence from the organization contains statements such as "out of business" , "no longer in operation" , or "terminated" .

      Note:

      Status 20 is only used for organizations with individual rulings. If the organization is a subordinate of a group and the parent indicates it is no longer part of the group, the subordinate is put into Status 36 or 40 depending on the subsection.

    2. Input this status with a Doc. Code 80, TC 016 and Definer Code B. and the current date is input for the status date (YYYYMM). Destroy per local procedures.

    3. If the organization has an IRC 501(c)(3) exemption with end of year assets greater than $100,000 (see Line 20 Part l on Form 990, Line 21 Part l on Form 990-EZ, Line 6 Part lll on Form 990-PF), do not input Status 20.

    4. When the organization responds to a delinquency notice with statements such as "out of business" , "no longer in operation" , "terminated," etc., a TC 591 cc 020 will be input. When this transaction posts to the tax module which is a primary return, the EO Entity Status will be updated to 20 with the date the TC 591 posted.

      Exception:

      If the BMF shows the account to be a subordinate of a group ruling; i.e., a GEN is present and the AF is 7 or 9, the update will be to a Status Code 28.

    5. When a final return is filed and Computer Condition Code F is input, the EO Entity Status is automatically updated to 20.

      Exception:

      If the BMF shows the account to be a subordinate of group ruling; i.e., a GEN is present and the AF is 7 or 9, the update will be to a Status Code 28.

3.13.12.6.18.11  (01-01-2015)
EO Status Code 21

  1. Status Code 21 ("Unable to locate " ) is used when we are unable to locate the organization. Status Code 21 is generated by the input of CC FRM49 with a TC 593 cc 082. The posting of the TC 593 cc 082 removes all EO filing requirements.

  2. When working an unpostable return which requires the updating of the EO Status Code from 21 to 01:

    1. Check EDS for a "T" case. If a "T" case is found, update the Status Code to 40. Notify the organization they have terminated and must apply for a formal exemption.

    2. If no "T" case is found, update the EO Status to 01 and post the return. Research CC BMFOLI to determine for what years the organization did not file a return and input a TC 474 to create a tax liability for those years.

    3. Update the filing requirements as follows:

    1. If the return indicates gross receipts greater than $50,000, update the 990 filing requirements to 990-01.

    2. If the return indicates gross receipts less than or equal to $50,000, update the 990 filing requirements to 990-02.

    3. If there is no indication or you are unable to determine the gross receipts, update the 990 filing requirements to 990-02.

3.13.12.6.18.12  (01-01-2015)
EO Status Code 22

  1. Status Code 22 ("Revocation" ) is used when the organization's exemption is revoked following review of the organization's account. This status will generate a Form 1120 filing requirement. If the Form 1120 FR is missing, add it to the account.

    Note:

    An organization in EO Status 22 cannot become a member of a group ruling without receiving an individual ruling first.

  2. If the organization files a Form 990-PF but there is a Form 1120 FR, change the status to 01 to post the Form 990-PF, return the account to its previous status after the return has posted. If the organization files a Form 990 but there is a Form 1120 FR, have the Lead determine the disposition of the return. The Lead will check the Docketed Case List for the assigned attorney and contact the attorney for information on how to dispose of the case.

3.13.12.6.18.13  (01-01-2015)
EO Status Codes 23 and 24

  1. Status Code 23 ("Termination Under 507(a)" ) is used when the organization is terminated under 507(a). The filing requirements of all EO returns will be updated to a zero, except Form 990-PF which will not change.

  2. Status Code 24 ("Termination Under 507(b)(1)(A)" ) is used when the organization is terminated under 507(b)(1)(A). The filing requirement for all EO returns will be updated to zero, except Form 990-PF which will not change.

3.13.12.6.18.14  (01-01-2015)
EO Status Code 25

  1. Status 25 Background Information

    1. Status 25 represents private foundations which have received an advance ruling letter from Cincinnati indicating they are terminating under 507(b)(1)(B), also known as a 60-month termination. Cincinnati will update the EO Status to 25 and input an Advance Ruling Date using Form 2363A. There will be a TC 016 with Cincinnati's DO code on CC BMFOLE to indicate the EO status was changed and advance ruling date input.

    2. These organizations will continue to file a Form 990-PF for 5 years, but may elect not to pay tax on net investment income. If they elect not to pay tax, a Form 872B (Consent to Extend the Time to Assess Miscellaneous Excise Taxes) must be attached to the Form 990-PF when filed. The interest on the tax should continue to accumulate in this case, but the organization should not receive notices or penalties. At the end of the 5 years, the organization must show it meets one of the three public support tests under IRC 509(a) (1) and (2) of the Code.

    3. If they do meet the public support test, Cincinnati will issue a new determination letter, update the EO Status to 01, change the FR to Form 990 and remove the advance ruling date. If the organization did not choose to pay their excise tax, they will not owe the interest which has accumulated. If the organization chose to pay the tax during the 60-month termination, they may apply for a refund.

    4. If the organization does not meet the public support test, Cincinnati will remove the advance ruling date, update the EO Status to 01 and the filing requirement will remain a Form 990-PF. If the organization did not pay any excise tax during the 60-month termination, the organization will owe back taxes plus interest.

    5. In the last year of the 60-month termination, the organization may file a Form 990 if they provide the necessary information to Cincinnati as stated in the Form 990-PF instructions and Cincinnati determines they meet the public support test and issues them a new determination letter. Process as follows:

      If Then
      The organization files a Form 990 for the final year of their termination period:
      1. Research EDS to determine if they were approved as a public charity.

      2. If they were approved, update the BMF with a TC 016 Doc. Code 80 Definer Codes AB.

      3. If they have not been approved, correspond with the organization indicating they are required to supply Cincinnati with the necessary information to determine if they are a public charity before they can file a Form 990. Also indicate if they have supplied the necessary information to Cincinnati to please send a copy along with their response. If they did not supply Cincinnati with the necessary information, they are required to file a Form 990-PF for the last year of their termination period.

      The organization responds with a copy of the information supplied to Cincinnati,
      1. Contact Cincinnati asking for a determination of the organization's public charity status.

      2. If Cincinnati indicates the organization is a public charity, update the BMF with a Form 990 filing requirement and EO Status of 01 with a TC 016 Doc. Code 80 Definer Codes AB.

      The organization responds with a completed Form 990-PF:
      1. Attach the Form 990 to back of the Form 990-PF and send the Form 990-PF through for processing.

      .
  2. If a Form 990-PF with the 60 - month termination box checked is received from Code & Edit, research EDS to determine if an Advance Ruling Letter 2245 was issued. There will be no advance ruling date on EDS. Also research IDRS with CC INOLE to determine if the EO Status is 25 and if there is an advance ruling date present. If no advance ruling date is present, it can be found by reprinting the 2245 Letter through the Letter Generation system on the Inventory Control System Menu on EDS.

    1. If an Advance Ruling Letter 2245 was issued to the organization as shown on EDS and the termination period began prior to January 1, 2002, but Master File was not updated, update the advance ruling date as indicated in the advance ruling letter using CC EOREQ/EOCHG, TC 016 Doc. Code 80. It is not necessary to update the EO Status to 25 because the Termination Code 1 will update the status systemically.

    2. If no advance ruling letter was issued to the organization, the EO Status is 25, and there is no advance ruling date on Master File, notify the organization with Letter 3064C they must apply for an advance ruling to qualify for the 507(b)(1)(B) termination per Publication 578. Also notify the organization they will receive a balance due notice. Input a TC 016 Definer Code B to update the EO Status to 01. Circle out the Termination Code 1 on the return.

If no TC 150, 460, 590, 591, 594-599 has posted to a tax module with a Form 990 filing requirement within 90 days of the issuance of the notice, the system will automatically update the EO Status to 32 with a TC 016 Doc. Code 80 Definer Code B.

    Note:

    Due to the difference between the receipt of a return and the posting of a return, EO Status Code 32 may not be updated to 01 Status. If a return is received and account is in Status 32, update to Status 01.
