    1. The module must still be in Status 096.

    2. There must be an audit report record for the module.

    3. The audit report record must be filled in completely.

    If the module fails, the system moves the modules to Status 099. IRM 5.18.1.7.11.45

  3. If the above criteria are satisfied, ASFR will move the module into Status 090 and prepare the 90-Day Letter.

    If Then
    The account is no longer in Status 096 The account is left in its current Status and no other action is taken.
    There is no audit report record for the module The account is moved to Status 031.
    The audit report record exists, but is improperly completed, The system cannot prepare a correct 90-Day Letter or eventual assessment, and again it moves the account back to Status 031 to have the 30-Day Letter regenerated.

  4. The system will determine the mailout date of the 90-Day Letter.

  5. The Status 090 follow-up date is calculated using the exact mailout date that will appear on the printed 90-Day Letter (120 days are added to mailout date for follow-up purposes).

  6. To get the exact 90-Day Letter mailout date and the certified mail number, access the ASFR TDI module and use screen menu option 19.

  7. ASFR generates a file of 90-Day Letters which is printed at the National Print Site. The 90–day Letter consists of:

    1. Form 3219 Notice of Deficiency (2 copies).

    Do not update ASFR entity if the MF entity cannot be updated.

  8. ASFR produces a copy of the certified mail listing. The Post Office stamps the certified mail listing to signify that the 90-day letters were mailed certified. The original stamped copy is retained by the Print Site and routed to the ASFR function.

  9. When ASFR creates a 90-Day Letter, it also requests a TC 494 post to IDRS.

  10. When the Status 090 waiting periods ends (120 days from mailout date), ASFR requests TIF check 4. IRM 5.18.1.8.2.4.

Status 093: RETURN SECURED 30/90-DAY LETTER

  1. Status 093 indicates that a return has been filed subsequent to the issuance of a 30-Day Letter.

  2. Manually update modules to Status 093, if taxpayer files a return and the module is any status greater than 030, but less than 10X. If it is a 10X status, see manager or lead to determine if update out of 10X is possible. To determine if update out of Status 10X is possible, look at the date the module was updated to Status 10X. If weekly processing has occurred since update to Status 10X, you cannot update out of 10X. If the module was updated to Status 102, 104, or 106 and weekly processing has occurred, response is considered a Reconsideration.

    Note:

    Transshipped returns should also be updated with Status 093 prior to being mailed to the campus responsible for processing. A history item should be input to IDRS and ASFR indicating where the return is being transshipped for processing. If the current status of the case is Status 093, do not update to Status 093 again. When updating ASFR, if the entry is made to "line 3" of the comments, the literal will appear on the ASFR 424 - No Activity listing which will assist in working the Status 093 cases.

  3. Status 093 prevents modules from systemically moving to next ASFR Status while tax examiners review filed return.

  5. Research and perfect foreign addresses in Status 094 on the ASFR and IDRS systems. Per the Postal Addressing Standards (Postal Service Publication 28), "the bottom line of the address should show only the COUNTRY name, written in full (no abbreviations).

If weekly processing has occurred since update to Status 10X, you cannot update out of 10X. If the module was updated to Status 102 or 104 and weekly processing has occurred, response is considered a Reconsideration.

    Note:

  3. Do not update modules in Status 100 to Status 109. Modules in Status 100 are sent for TIF check 5, to verify all transactions posted to IDRS. IRM 5.18.1.8.2.5. ASFR systemically updates modules that passed the TIF check 5 to Status 109 to indicate that all required IDRS actions are complete, and to receive proper closing credit on ASFR–200 REPORT—WEEKLY MIS REPORT.

5.18.1.7.11.48  (10-01-2005)
Status 101: CLOSED, No ASFR Assessment (TC 290 zero)

  1. Status 101 indicates that a TC 290 for $.00 was input on IDRS.

  2. Status 101 is a manual update status. Update a module to Status 101 when a 30-Day Letter or 90-Day Letter was issued, and a TC 290 for $.00 has been input to IDRS, but there actually is no tax assessment to be input. Update to Status 101 only after the TC 290 for $.00 was input to IDRS. A TC 290 for $.00 is input when it has been determined that no tax is due on the module.

  3. Do not update modules in Status 101 to Status 109. Modules in Status 101 are sent for TIF check 5 to verify all transactions posted to IDRS. IRM 5.18.1.8.2.5. ASFR systemically updates modules that passed the TIF check 5 to Status 109 to indicate that all required IDRS actions are complete, and to receive proper closing credit on ASFR–200 REPORT—WEEKLY MIS REPORT.

    Because a dummy TC 150 is established on MF, input a TC 290 for $.00. DO NOT skip ASFR Status 100-104 series of ASFR closing statuses even if it appears unnecessary. If a module moves directly from Status 090 into Status 109 without going through statuses 100-104 series, the system cannot credit the proper closure count on the ASFR-200 REPORT - WEEKLY MIS REPORT.

Status 385: CHECK FOR POSSIBLE DOUBLING UP OF MINORS

    If Then
    There is a small discrepancy (e.g., major states there are 18 case minors, but there are actually only 17 minors on ASFR. )
    1. Use CC SUPOL to review the IRP documents to locate the missing case minor(s) and manually add it to ASFR. Be sure to add this new minor's income into the correct field on the case major (e.g., Interest income must be added into the case major interest field).

    2. If no other problems detected with the module, move the module to Status 031.

    The case major has double the number of case minors that actually exist
    1. Correct the income total on the case major (e.g., major shows 22 minors, but there are only 11 minors; major income fields are double their correct amounts).

    2. Update module to Status 031.

    Note:

    Print the Status 385 Listing using the Manager's Menu.

Cases in status 714 have not been started (no dummy 150 generated), but there are related modules on ASFR for this account which have been started. Cases will remain suspended in status 714 until all started modules are closed off ASFR. Then, the case will systemically move to status 715. Each week, cases in status 714 will be reviewed to determine if the TDA condition is still present. If it is, the case will remain in status 714. If it is not, the case will return to the previous status code.

Once the record has generated, IDS will determine the appropriate non ASFR assignment for the case and be responsible for taking all the necessary actions for reassigning that account. Because of the timing of IDRS programs, most actions will take place a week and a half after ASFR has generated the A2 transaction. Because of the delay, ASFR will also review these cases to determine if the TDA condition is still present. If it is, the case will remain in status 716. If it is not, the case will return to the pre-714/715 status code.

5.18.1.7.11.67  (06-28-2010)
