4.4.35  Unpostable Resolution

4.4.35.1  (12-29-2009)
Overview

  1. The Generalized Unpostable Framework (GUF) contains transactions that attempted to post to the Master File but failed to match the respective Master File account and thus become unpostable records. Procedures in this chapter contain the unpostable reason codes most frequently received in Examination along with the required resolution.

4.4.35.1.1  (12-29-2009)
Additional Reference Manuals

  1. Refer to IRM 3.12.32 if you want information on SC error resolution.

  2. Refer to IRM 3.12.179 if you want information on resolving IMF/BMF/PMF/IRAF/CAWR unpostables, the overall philosophy, general concepts, and instructions.

  3. Refer to IRM 3.12.166 if you want information on EPMF/IRAF unpostables.

4.4.35.2  (12-29-2009)
Responsibility and Authority

  1. This chapter applies to managers and individuals using the GUF to manage, assign, reassign, research, suspense, close, and/or review Examination unpostable cases.

  2. Centralized Case Processing (CCP) will make every effort to resolve Examination unpostables. If resolution cannot be made after all research has been CCP will work with the area office on a resolution.

  3. If the unpostable cannot be corrected within a reasonable amount of time, use CC AMAXUE to change the TC 300 Indicator to "5 " . This causes the case to appear on the Non-Assessed Closures Listing until another AMCLSE is input and it will prevent the AIMS base from aging.

4.4.35.3  (02-08-1999)
Statute Protection

  1. Employees must be aware of statute limitations for various tax returns. Since protection of statutes is a top priority, the unpostable listings must be carefully analyzed and good judgment must be exercised in the resolution of cases, requisition of returns and preparation of quick assessments.

4.4.35.3.1  (02-08-1999)
Category E2

  1. All unpostable cases must be screened for statute protection purposes prior to taking any resolution action. Category E2 was established to identify Examination statute cases. The E2 category includes UPC 150, 350, and 750 cases with a document code of 47 and imminent statute cases if the transaction code is 300 and the document code is 47. All E2 category unpostable cases must be worked on a priority basis with manual assessments being initiated when necessary for statute protection. Continued statute control is required for all Examination unpostables.

4.4.35.4  (02-08-1999)
AIMS—General Information

  1. CC AMCLSU is the command code that is used to correct Doc Code 47 adjustments that have unposted. A two digit unpostable indicator (Position 47–48 of Line 1) is used to identify the type of unpostable and the function resolving the unpostable.

    • Pos. 47 = "P" if you are correcting an AMCLSF, partial that unposted; "L" if you are correcting an AMCLSE, long closure that unposted

    • Pos. 48 = "E" if it's an Examination adjustment that unposted; "A" if it's an Appeals adjustment that unposted

4.4.35.4.1  (12-29-2009)
CC AMCLSU/LE

  1. Blocking Series must be 00X, 08X, 30X, 38X, 40X, if the Status Code is 90.

  2. Blocking Series must be 10X or 18X if the Status Code is 8X.

  3. The TC 300 indicator must be reset to a "5" using CC AMAXU before an AMCLSU/LE can be input. The indicator must also be reset to a "5" if the unpostable must be returned to the originator for corrective action. Cases that are in Status Code 90 with a TC 300 Indicator of "5" will appear on the Non-Assessed Closures listing.

  4. If an unpostable is corrected using manual assessment procedures, AND THE TC 300 INDICATOR WAS RESET TO A "5" , in order to remove the case from the Non-Assessed Closures listing:

    • input a CC AMCLSU with $0.00 in Item 12, the amount of the manual assessment in Item 35 and,

    • after a successful input, immediately input a CC TERUP to prevent the transaction from going to Master File.

  5. If the TC 300 indicator was not reset to a "5" , do not input an AMCLSU.

4.4.35.4.1.1  (12-29-2009)
Exam Results

  1. When CC AMCLSU/LE is entered, the computer deletes all the information from the data base that was previously input. Therefore, ALL the information from the original Form 5344 must be reinput. If CC AMCLSU/LE is used, the computer will automatically recalculate exam results by subtracting out of results the amount that appears in the "Last Amt Put in Cum Field" and adding into results the amount reinput through CC AMCLSU/LE (this process is not performed when AMCLSU/LE is input to correct an Exam closure to Appeals that unposted) since the amount in the " Last Amt Put in Cum Field is always zero" .

4.4.35.4.2  (02-08-1999)
CC AMCLSU/PE

  1. Blocking Series must be 10X or 18X.

  2. Cannot input unless the partial agreement indicator was previously set.

4.4.35.4.2.1  (02-08-1999)
Exam Results

  1. Calculation of Exam Results depends on whether the case is still in an Exam Status Code or Status Code 8X or 90.

4.4.35.4.2.1.1  (02-08-1999)
Open Inventory Cases

  1. When an AMCLSF is input, the net of tax, penalty, and credits, are captured in both the Last-Amt-Put-In-Cum field and the Cum-Assmnt field. When an AMCLSU/PE is input, the unpostable amount is not removed from the Cum-Assmnt field which causes the adjustment to be included twice when Exam Results are calculated at final closing. The following procedures must be followed to prevent this from happening.

    1. Enter another AMCLSF with amounts necessary to reverse the unpostable AMCLSF IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED BY CC TERUP. This removes the unpostable amount from the Cum-Assmnt field.

    2. Enter the AMCLSU/PE with the correct amounts. This will correct AIMS and update Master File.

4.4.35.4.2.1.1.1  (02-08-1999)
Example

  1. An AMCLSF in the amount of $500 has unposted and you must reinput the AMCLSU/PE with the same amount.

    1. Input an AMCLSF with a TC 301 for $500. This reduces the Cum-Assmnt field by $500.

    2. Immediately input a TERUP to prevent the TC 301 from going to Master File.

    3. Input an AMCLSU/PE for $500. This increases the Cum-Assmnt field by $500.

4.4.35.4.2.1.2  (02-08-1999)
Status 8X or 90 Cases

  1. If an AMCLSF/PE is required after a case is closed, the following procedures must be followed:

    1. Enter the AMCLSU/PE with the correct amounts. This will correct AIMS and update Master File.

    2. To eliminate the double credit for AMCLSU/PE, immediately input a CC AMAXU with an amount that will reverse the AMCLSU/PE in Item 35.

4.4.35.4.2.1.2.1  (02-08-1999)
Example

  1. An AMCLSF in the amount of $500 has unposted and you must reinput the AMCLSU/PE with the same amount.

    1. Input an AMCLSU/PE for $500. This increases the Cum-Assmnt field by $500 therefore $1,000 is included in Exam Results.

    2. Input an AMAXU, Item 35 for −$500. This is to remove the duplicated amount and also causes the Exam Results to be recalculated and re- extracted to the Exam tables.

4.4.35.5  (12-29-2009)
Resolving Unpostables without Source Documents

  1. Occasionally the source document for an Examination unpostable cannot be secured and that document is required for corrective action. In those instances, use the following procedures:

    1. Make at least three attempts to secure the unpostable document. The second request should be made approximately two weeks after the first and the third request four weeks later. If the ASED is imminent, requests can be made at more frequent intervals and a manual assessment must be made if the statute needs protection.

    2. If the return charge out indicates the return is charged to another area, follow-up to locate the return.

    3. If the return has still not been secured, initiate a special search.

    4. If unsuccessful, additional research will he needed to remake Form 5344, Examination Closing Record. This research may include, but is not limited to AMDISA, TXMOD, MFTRA, area office contact, securing the RAR, contacting the taxpayer, and a search of local files. The remade Form 5344 should be clearly annotated "Duplicate Form 5344 prepared by CCP to Correct an Unpostable" .

    5. If Form 5344 is recreated, send to files attached to a Form 2275 with the following in the comments section "REINPUT UNPOSTABLE DOCUMENT-UNABLE TO SECURE ORIGINAL DOC FROM FILES. PLEASE LOCATE UNPOSTABLE DOC AND REFILE UNDER NEW DLN."

4.4.35.6  (02-08-1999)
Civil Penalty Module Unpostables

  1. Civil penalty unpostables may be generated in an Examination category or forwarded to Examination from Document Perfection. IRM 3.12.179 and 3.12.32 provide information for the correction of these unpostables; however, in some instances, additional information is needed for resolution. Form 8278, Computation and Assessment of Miscellaneous Penalties, will be sent to Service Center Files as a source document for all civil penalty assessments initiated by the area office. In instances where the civil penalty source document is not readily available, the information for resolving the unpostable may be acquired using the following information:

    1. Reference Code 600–613—Failure to File Penalties. These penalties are assessed in conjunction with an Examination IMF or BMF case. If the Form 8278 is unavailable, request the related Examination case for that taxpayer to obtain information regarding the penalty.

    2. Reference Code 615—Area Office Form W–2 Penalties After Assessment. The penalty files are forwarded to the service center and maintained in the SCC W–4 Unit.

    3. Reference Code 622–624–626—Return Preparer Penalties. Agreed cases will be filed with the penalty document locator number in return files. Unagreed cases are suspended in the area office. If additional information is required on the unagreed case, contact the Preparer Penalty Coordinator in the area office.

    4. Reference Code 628—Abusive Tax Shelter Penalty. The penalty file is held by Quality Review in the area office for a 120-day suspense.

    5. Reference Code 630—Aiding and Abetting Penalties. The penalty file is held by Quality Review in the area office for a 120-day suspense.

    6. Reference Code 665—Frivolous Penalties. The penalty file is held by Quality Review in the area office for a 120-day suspense.

    7. Reference Code 634–635—Failure to Furnish Information on Tax Shelter and Failure to Maintain a List of Investors. The penalty file should be in return Files under the penalty document locator number.

UPC 160 — Dup File/F Freeze

(1) Optional Fields

  1. Master File area office code

  2. DLN of posted unreversed TC 420 or 424

(2) Categories

  1. E1—Examination Change Batch

  2. E2—Examination—Statute

  3. E3—Examination Void Batch

(3) Conditions

  1. RC3—A TC 420 attempts to post to a module containing an unreserved TC 420.

  2. RC4—A TC 300 without priority code 1, 3, 4, or 7, or TC 421 (Doc. Code 47) attempts to post to a module with a duplicate/amended return freeze (A– freeze).

  3. RC5—A TC 424 attempts to post (except TC 424 with Push Code 010 or 036, or DLN with block and serial of 8888 or 8889) and an unreversed TC 420 or TC 424 is already posted. This condition will also occur when a TC424 (except Push Code 049) or TC 420 attempts to post and the module contains a TC 916 or the entity contains TC 918.

  4. RC6—A TC 421 (Doc Code 47) attempts to post when the TC 640 freeze (F– freeze) is in effect.

  5. RC8—A TC 424 attempts to post to a module containing a TC 494.

(4) Resolutions

  1. For RC3—URC 2.

  2. For RC4—Determine if the amended return is in the case and if it has been considered. If so, URC 2, add PC 1 and re-enter the adjustment.

    1. If not found, review TXMODA to see if a previous adjustment has been made. If so, ensure issue is the same, change the document to TC 300 zero, DC 12, add PC 1 and re-enter. URC 2. If adjustment is not found, place the case in suspense and request the return. If the return has not been considered, route case to classification function and work per their instructions.

    2. If a partial assessment, verify that the AO has the amended. URC 2, add PC 4 and re-enter. Priority Code 4 will allow the partial assessment to post, even if the module contains a duplicate/amended return freeze, without releasing the freeze at Master File. If AO requests, void back to area.

    3. If TC 301, determine if case is a carryback. If so, restricted interest computation is necessary.

    4. If the "A" freeze unpostable is TC 421, check TXMODA to see if adjustment has been made. If so, URC 0. If not, place case in suspense and secure the return. Route case to Classification for review and work per instructions.

    5. If adjustment is required use ADJ54 and PC 1 in Block 15. Cycle in URC 0 to post after adjustment.

  3. For RC5—TC 424 will be worked on 424 Reject Register.

  4. For RC6—If the TC 421 is unpostable because of the presence of TC 640 in the module, research IDRS and AMDIS to determine if posting errors, cycling problems or examination errors caused the advanced payment to post to an incorrect tax module. Also check the spouse's SSN for possible incorrect posting of the payment. If necessary, secure the payment document to screen for use of the wrong TIN, tax period or other data that caused the information to be posted incorrectly to master file.

    1. If the TC 640 was used in error, reverse the TC 640 and post the correct transaction.

    2. If the payment posted to the incorrect module, determine correct TIN or tax period and input a credit transfer. Cycle URC 0 if UPCAS not voided. If UPCAS has voided the unpostable transaction, input TC 421 (REQ77) and TC 290 0 with refile DLN.

    3. If research indicates that the TC 640 posted correctly and the assessment statute expiration date is imminent, expedite the case to Examination Classification if closing was input by the area or to Correspondence Examination if they input the closing for determination to quick assessment.

    4. If research indicates the TC 640 posted correctly and the assessment statute date is not imminent, reject the case back to originator.

    5. For RC8—T/C 424 will be worked on 424 Reject Register.

Exclude TC 300/301/308/309 with a secondary TC 320 or if a TC 320 is already posted, or return has condition code "R" , or return contains Doc. Code 51 or 52.

(4) Resolutions

  1. RC5

    1. Research RAR to see if TC 160 was included but not entered on unpostable record. If so remake document with correct TC 160 amount. Correct hash total and re-enter the complete, corrected Form 5344 using CC AMCLSU. URC D. If no penalty on RAR, check for taxpayers credits. If enough credit was available to cover the additional liability, re-enter Examination adjustment with a TC 160 zero. If the RAR does not include the TC 160 amount, coordinate with Examination Classification for direction.

    2. If unpostable is an overassessment (TC 301) check for possible carryback adjustment and initiate restricted interest computation as necessary. Add the TC 340 with an amount to the Form 5344 correct the has total, re-enter the complete, corrected Form 5344 using CC AMCLSU, URC 0.

    3. If unpostable is a TC 304, 305, 308 or 309 re-enter the Examination adjustment with a TC 160 0. URC D.

      Change TC 304/305 to TC 308/309 when adding a penalty transaction Code.

    4. If unpostable record is for a Form 1120 or 1041, research for an approved Extension of Time. If found re-enter the Examination adjustment with TC 160 0. CC AMCLSU, URC D.

    5. If unpostable is a partial assessment, re-enter the Examination adjustment with TC 160 0.

      • If the unpostable requires a manual assessment and contains a TC 160, the total interest computation must include interest on the penalty per Deficit Reduction Act of 1984, which became law July 18, 1984. (COMPA begins 7/18/84 for returns due prior to 12/31/83.)

      • For income tax returns due after 12/31/82, and are filed more than 60 days late, the minimum penalty will be the lesser of $100 or 100% on the unpaid tax shown on the return.

      • Remember Failure to Pay Penalty when adjusting delinquency. If only delinquency penalty requires an adjustment and there is a TC 27X posted or if the penalties are combined, a TC 270 zero must be input to prevent erroneous adjustment of the Failure to Pay Penalty.

      • Failure to File Penalty (TC 160/166) is computed at 5% per month unless Failure to Pay (TC 276/270) is present. The Failure to File Penalty is then computed at 4.5% and the Failure to Pay Penalty is computed at 5%.
