Update History

July 2013

Because the use of the BOLO lists was suspended (reported in June), the memorandum is no longer operational therefore we are closing this recommendation. However, separately, we are revising the IRM that provides guidance on processing exempt application and have incorporated into the draft comments received from the Taxpayer Advocate and providing training to staff on how to apply appropriate screening criteria.

June 2013

  • Memo issued on May 17, 2012
  • Memo suspending use of BOLO spreadsheet and outlining alternative procedures, dated June 20, 2013, was issued to staff on June 21, 2013
  • Provide training to staff on how to apply the appropriate screening criteria in the absence of BOLO lists
