Overview of Exempt Organizations Business Master File

  1. This IRM contains procedures and instructions for identifying and processing Exempt Organization data posted to the Exempt Organizations/Business Master File (EO/BMF).

  2. The Business Master File (BMF) and the Exempt Organizations Master File (EOMF) were merged January 1, 1981, and the resulting file is referred to as the EO/BMF.

    Reminder:

    The EO/BMF was first established as the result of a questionnaire IRS sent to half a million organizations shown as tax exempt according to IRS records. IRS posted selected exemption data to the EOMF from the responses received.

  3. The EOMF was then updated by:

    • The Area Office (AO) and Headquarters' (HQ), (formerly National Office).

    • Issuance of new determination letters and rulings for exemption via the EP/EO Determination System (EDS),( formerly the Employee Plans and Exempt Organizations Application Control System (EACS))

    • Vouchers prepared by various IRS functions

  4. Items posted to the EOMF included, but weren’t limited to:

    • Returns received

    • Examination results

    • Collection activity

EO/BMF Description

  1. The EO/BMF, of magnetic tape records, constitutes IRS EOs basic record source. Each record is divided into two parts:

    1. An entity module of data identifying and describing the EO and its exemption

    2. A return section of data from EO returns and examinations.

  2. In general, organizations included on the EO/BMF are organizations for which an application for exemption has been processed. These include the following types of organizations:

    1. Independent organizations covered by individual rulings or determination letters

      Exception:

      Individual churches and synagogues affiliated with well-known religious denominations.

    2. Organizations covered by group exemption letters and required to file EO returns (including both central and subordinate organizations)

      Exception:

      Subordinate units of Federally-chartered organizations exempt under (IRC 501(c)(1). These organizations are controlled and regulated by another government agency and subject to the supervision, periodic audit and examination procedures of the agency (e.g., Federal Credit Unions, Federal Land Banks, Federal Land Bank Association, and Federal Intermediate Credit Banks).

    3. State-chartered credit unions covered by group returns which are included in group exemptions may be omitted from the EO/BMF at the appropriate (AO) Manager’s discretion.

Elements and Use of the EO/BMF

  1. The EO/BMF produces the following, for HQ and AO, EO information needs:

    • Management information reports

    • Tables

    • Rosters

    • Other lists

  2. The Martinsburg Computing Center (MCC):

    1. Maintains the tape file, which produces Master File tables for HQ and AOs.

    2. Refers the tapes to the service centers or Detroit Computing Center (DCC) for production of appropriate printouts.

EO/BMF Submodule Records

  1. The data unique to EO (subsection (SS), classification (CL), etc.) is stored in the EO Section (Submodule) of the BMF entity.

  2. Any common data (Filing Requirements (FRs), etc.) is stored in the regular section of the BMF entity.

EO Entity Record

  1. The EO Entity Record for each organization consists of the unique information identifying the organization as having been granted tax exempt status.

    See Title
    IRM 25.7.1.3.2 EO/BMF Processing Procedures
    Exhibit 25.7.1-2 EO/BMF Name Abbreviations
    Exhibit 25.7.1-3 Table of EO Status, (TF) and AF Codes
    Exhibit 25.7.1-4 Table of EO SS and CL Codes

EO/BMF Processing Procedures

  1. This section lists guidance to the AO and HQ Employees who work with EO and EO/BMF programs in carrying out their responsibilities under the EO/BMF system. This includes:

    • Preparing and processing EO/BMF vouchers

    • Processing exempt organization returns

    • Using EO/BMF output to help in administering the exempt organization provisions of law, particularly in monitoring and enhancing compliance.

  2. Under the EO/BMF system, there are records on tape which contain data essential to administer the EO functions. The data consists of:

    1. Name and address

    2. FRs

    3. Filing history

    4. Type of organization,

    5. IRC SS under which an organization is currently recognized as exempt, have been denied, or failed to establish exemption since January 1981, or the exemption of which has been revoked or terminated after December 1980.

  3. When the EOMF merged with the BMF in January 1981, generally, only active EOMF accounts were placed on the BMF. The inactive accounts (except revoked private foundations) were placed on an EO Inactive Retention Register (EOIRR) for research purposes.

    Note:

    All active EOMF accounts were placed on the BMF with a BMF Entity Module and an "EO Submodule" or "EO Section."

Transaction Codes (TC)

  1. Changes are made to an EO/BMF account using Integrated Data Retrieval System (IDRS) Command Code (CC) EOREQ/EOCHG or EACS.

  2. EO entity changes are input with Document Code 80 or 81. Each of these Document Codes indicates special processing on the BMF. Both Document Codes will create an EO Section or EO Submodule on the BMF.

    1. When Document Code 80 is used, it changes only the account for the Employer Identification Number (EIN) input.

    2. Document Code 81 changes the Group Exemption Number (GEN) File at MCC and updates all accounts with a common GEN on the BMF.

  3. Form 2363-A, Request for IDRS Input for BMF/EO Entity Change, or CC EOCHG is used to input TCs 000, 012, 013, 014 and 016 onto the BMF.

    1. If the transaction is for one account, an EIN must be present.

    2. TC 016 (Document Code 81) can also be used to change entity data to all organization(s) exempt under the same (GEN).

TC Descriptions

  1. TC 000 — Document Code 80

    1. Use when the EIN isn’t on the BMF. You may also use this TC to establish 941 FRs simultaneously.

    2. Use TC 000 when adding a new organization that is a member of a Group Ruling to the BMF. This TC is primarily for campus use, but AOs or HQ may occasionally need to establish a subordinate unit.

    3. Use when adding an EO/BMF account that isn’t a member of a Group Ruling.

  2. TC 000 — Document Code 81

    1. Use if the EIN isn’t on the BMF and a new subordinate is being added to an existing GEN, or if a new Group Ruling has been granted and the subordinates are being added to the BMF.

    2. When this TC is used, a TC 016, Document Code 81, Definer Code "D" must be input to create a complete EO/BMF entity on the MF.

      Note:

      For campus use only.

  3. TC 012 — Document Code 80

    1. Use to reopen an account that had all its FRs turned off. Must enter the SS/CL codes and at least one EO FR must be activated.

    2. Use when an EO/BMF account has FRs consisting entirely of 8’s. The FRs become 8’s because of a partial merge (TC 011) or when a TC 020 is posted.

  4. TC 013 — Document Code 80

    1. Use when the Organization/Primary Name is changed. TC 013 may also be used to change the name and address of the EO account.

  5. TC 014 — Document Code 80

    1. Use this code when changing the address of an organization.

    2. You may also input the care of (c/o) name and/or foreign or location addresses with this TC.

  6. TC 016 — Document Code 80

    1. Use when changing or adding exemption data to an account that is already on the BMF.

  7. TC 016 — Document Code 81

    1. Use when changing exemption data for all subordinates under one GEN Number. The input document must contain the "FROM GEN" and the Parent’s EIN and Name Control (NC).

    2. This TC will generate a transaction identical to the input TC 016, for every subordinate on the GEN File with a common GEN.

BMF TC Definer Codes

  1. Enter Definer Codes A, B, or C, as appropriate. You may input up to three TC Definer Codes in any order. These codes are used with TC 012/016 to instruct the computer that all the fields on sets of data must be input and validated.

    1. For TC 012 and TC 016, a Definer Code is always required if a FR for Form 990, Form 990-T, Form 5227 or Not Required is input.

    2. When Definer Code A, B, or C is used, all or one may be present with TC 016, Document Code 80 or 81.

    3. When the TC is 012, Document Code 80, Definer Code A can be the only code present.

  2. The use and required input for each Definer Code are explained below.

Definer Codes
  1. Definer Code A identifies a change being made to either the SS Code, CL Code, EO FR, or the TF, if applicable. The TF is a required input for SS 501(c)(3) only. These fields are considered a set and the data for all must be entered even if modifying or changing only one element on the EO/BMF.

    Note:

    Although not part of the set, the Fiscal Year/Month (FY/M) (accounting period) must be entered with Definer Code A, Document Code 80, when a positive FR is input (other than N/R 1).

    1. Definer Code A, Document Code 80 — TC must be 012 or 016. At least one FR (990, 990-PF, 990-T, 5227 or Not Required(NR)) must be input. SS, TF (if applicable), CL Code and Accounting Period (FY/M) and RM must be input.

      Note:

      If 990-T FR is input, a 990 or 990-PF must also be input.

    2. Definer Code A, Document Code 81 — TC must be 016, "FROM GEN" must be input. The FR must be NR of 1. SS, TF (if applicable), CL Code and RM must be input.

  2. Definer Code B identifies a change being made to the Status Code (ST) and/or the Status Date. This is considered one field and all the data must be entered.

    1. Definer Code B, Document Code 80 — TC 016. Input ST and Date (YYYYMM) and RM.

    2. Definer Code B, Document Code 81 — TC 016. Input "FROM GEN" . Input ST and Date (YYYYMM) and RM.

  3. Definer Code C identifies a change being made to the Ruling Date (RD) and/or AF Code. It requires TC, From Gen, and AF Code be input.

    1. Definer Code C, Document Code 80 — TC 016. Input GEN, RD and/or AF Code and RM.

    2. Definer Code C, Document Code 81 — TC 016. Input "FROM GEN" . Input RD and/or AF Code and RM.

EO/BMF Entity Module

  1. A TC 000, Document Code 04, 63, 80 or 81 creates the BMF portion of the EO/BMF Entity Module and contains the following information:

    1. EIN

    2. NC and CD

    3. Establishment Date

    4. Employment Code (EC)

    5. FY/M

    6. Filing Requirement Code (FRC)

    7. Reserve

    8. BMF Print Name Lines

    9. Address/City/State and Zip

    10. Primary Location Code (PLC)

  2. BMF Entity Module — Integrated Data Retrieval System (IDRS) Command Code’s (CC) BNCHG or EOCHG can change the BMF Entity Module information, as specified below.

Data Fields
  1. EIN — Entity Control assigns this number and each organization should have only one number. Entity Control can only change the number with a TC 011, Document Code 63. This provides for consolidation of all tax modules for an organization on BMF, under one EIN (in either an active or inactive status) and thus preserve returns data. We must refer all EIN changes to the Ogden Submission Processing Center (OSPC) to initiate the action, Attention: Entity Control Unit.

  2. NC — The name control is created by coding the organization’s name. CC EOCHG with a Document Code of 80, TC 013 or 016 on IDRS, can only change the name control.

  3. CD — The check digit is created from the EIN when the account posts to the BMF. It can’t be changed.

  4. Establishment Date — The establishment date is the date that the organization started business or was established on the BMF. A TC 000 creates the establishment date. It can’t be changed.

  5. EC — This code identifies the Type of Employment Taxes that an organization is or isn’t required to pay. A Document Code 63 or 80 can change this code.

  6. FYM — The FYM is created when the organization is established on the BMF or when the first return is posted. Document Code 63 or 80 can change it.

  7. FRC — Under certain conditions, exempt organizations can have a BMF FRC (Forms 941, 720, 940, 943, 1120, 1041 or 1065, etc.). These FRC’s can be changed with a Document Code 63 or 80. We can only change the positive EO FRC’s (Forms 990, 990-T, 990-PF and 5227) with a Document Code 80. To delete an EO FR, use a Document Code 63.

  8. Print Name Lines — Four name lines are created from the EO Section in the following order:

    • Organization Name

    • Sort Name

    • Foreign/Location Address

    • C/O Name (in care of name)

  9. The BMF Print Name Lines can only be changed with a Document Code 80. The Print Name Lines are used for the BMF outputs, such as notices, transcripts, etc. These name lines aren’t used for the EO Return Mailing Labels.

  10. Address/City/State and Zip — A Document Code 63 or 80 can change the address data from the return.

  11. Primary Location Code (PLC) — The PLC is the AO code based on the address where the taxpayer receives mail. The BMF should generate the PLC, or we can create or change it by CC BNCHG, Document Code 63 or 50. The PLC is issued to identify the campus controlling the account.

EO Section of the BMF

  1. A TC 000, Document Code 80 or 81 creates the EO Submodule (EO Section) of the EO/BMF Entity Module for a new entity. If the entity is already on the BMF, a TC 016 with a Document Code 80 or 81, creates the EO Section.

  2. CC EOCHG can only change the information on the EO Submodule (EO Section) as identified below.

Data Fields
  1. Subsection (SS) — Current and Prior — Identifies the IRC Section under which the organization is exempt. It also determines the type of return the organization must file. The current SS should be shown on IDRS CC INOLE, BMFOL, or ENMOD. If an incorrect SS is on the BMF with a Status 06, 07, 10, 11, 40 or 41, it can be deleted with the input of Document Code 99.

  2. Classification Code (CL) — This code identifies the type of organization or the purpose for which it was established. One to four different codes may be present. The CL should be shown on IDRS CC INOLE, BMFOL, or ENMOD.

  3. ST — Current and Prior Status — This code shows the status of the organization. The code identifies if the organization has been granted an exemption or, if it has been applied for, revoked or terminated. The AO normally establishes the ST when the exemption is granted, denied or revoked. However, Ogden Submission Processing can establish ST Codes 06, 07, 10, 11, 12, 20, 40 and members of a Group Ruling. Also, Ogden Submission Processing must input Status 01 when:

    1. An entity is found in a closed status on EACS/EDS.

    2. A copy of a determination letter has been received,

    3. To reestablish a good status after Status 20 or 21 has posted.

    Note:

    The current ST should be shown with the Status Date (YYYYMM) on IDRS CC INOLE, BMFOL or ENMOD. The current and prior ST is shown on the EO Registers on IDRS.

  4. AF Code — This code shows whether the organization received an individual ruling or is part of a Group Ruling. We don’t normally change the AF code unless the entity is changing from a group to an individual ruling or from an individual to a group ruling. The AF should be shown on, IDRS CC INOLE, BMFOL or ENMOD and the EO Registers on IDRS.

  5. RD — This is the date the exemption was granted (ruled on). This date is normally not changed except by the AO. The RD should be shown on IDRS CC INOLE, BMFOL or ENMOD.

  6. Group Exemption Number (GEN) — When we grant the organization a group exemption, the Ohio AO assigns a GEN. This number identifies all the organizations (subordinates) that are a part of the group. The GEN should be shown on IDRS CC INOLE, BMFOL, or ENMOD. It can be changed, but CAUTION must be used.

  7. Foundation Code (TF) — All organizations that are exempt under IRC 501(c)(3) must have a TF. This code identifies the TF. The AO normally changes this code. The TF should be shown on IDRS CC INOLE, BMFOL or ENMOD. If a TF remains on the BMF because the SS was changed to one that doesn’t require a TF, we can delete the TF with the input of a TC 016, TF 99, Document Code 80.

  8. Deductibility Code and Year (DC) — This code shows whether contributions to the organization are deductible from income. The AO determines the code when they grant the exemption and only the AO can change it. The DC, with the century and year (CCYY), should be shown on IDRS.

  9. Type of Organization (TO) — This code shows whether the organization is a trust, a corporation, an association, etc. The AO assigns the code when they grant the exemption and is normally changed by them. The TO is shown on IDRS.

  10. Area Office (AO) — This code identifies the district where the organization’s principal place of business is located and determines the AO. The AO should be changed if the taxpayer’s address is changed. The AO is shown on IDRS.

  11. File Folder Number (FFN) — This code identifies the Administrative Case File Folder Number located in the AO. The AO assigns the FFN when they receive an application for exemption. The FFN must normally not be changed. The FFN is shown on IDRS CC INOLE, BMFOL or ENMOD.

  12. Pension Plan (PP) — This code shows whether the organization has a pension plan. The AO assigns it when they grant the exemption and the AO normally changes it. The PP should be shown on IDRS.

  13. Advance Ruling Date (AD) — If the organization has an "advance ruling," the AO must input the AD. The AD should be shown on IDRS.

    Note:

    AD was done away with in 2008 and this field should now only be used when the organization is in status 25.

  14. Large Case Code (LC) — If the AO identifies the organization as a "large case," they should input this code. The LC should be shown on IDRS.

  15. Organization/Primary Name — The name of the organization. It is used to create the BMF print lines. The Organization/Primary Name should be shown on the EO Mailing Labels. Also, the Organization/Primary Name should be shown IDRS.

  16. Sort Name (SN) — This is the name the organization is doing business under, and may be different from the Primary Name. The Sort Name becomes a second sort reference on the BMF Print Name Lines. It is also shown on IDRS. The input of two dollar signs ($$) in the SN field (CC EOCHG) will delete a Sort Name on the BMF.

  17. In Care of Name (CO) — When the organization requests that all correspondence be addressed in care of someone, this name must be present. The input of two dollar signs ($$) will delete a "Care of Name" on the BMF.

  18. Foreign or Location Address (FA) — When the organization is located in a foreign country, the complete address should be entered here. If the organization has an address where it is located that is different from the mailing address, it should be entered in this field. The input of two dollar signs ($$) deletes a Foreign or Location Address.

Specific EO Return Elements on the BMF

  1. The following data elements are transcribed from EO returns and posted to the EO/BMF.

    1. Total Assets (End of Year)

    2. Total Income or Gross receipts (depending on return)

    3. Asset Code derived from a) above

    4. Income Code derived from b) above

  2. Fields a–d are retained on the EO/BMF.

Request for IDRS Input

  1. Form 2363-A is used to establish or change EO accounts on the BMF. Form 2363-A must be used to:

    1. Add an EO Submodule to an account on the BMF

    2. Update an EO Submodule to a BMF account already established on the BMF

    3. Add or update the account of a parent or subordinate of a group on the BMF and the GEN File

  2. These instructions are for inputting an IDRS transaction with CC EOCHG when creating an entity on the BMF (TC 000); adding or changing an EO Section on the BMF (TC 016); or changing an already established EO Section on the BMF (TC 012, 013, 014, or 016).

  3. When the input of Form 2363-A results in a reject, see IRM 2.4.10, IDRS Terminal input - Command Codes EOREQ and EOCHG, for processing CC EOCHG. This IRM provides the validity and consistency checks for the existence of an invalid condition.

    Caution:

    Any EOCHG input will create an EO Section on the BMF; therefore, be sure it is an EO account before using CC EOCHG.

  4. The following lists the CC EOCHG format fields:

    • Command Code

    • EIN Number

    • Name Control

    • Document Code

Form 2363-A Preparation Instructions

  1. See below and IRM 2.4.10-2, Command Code EOCHG, for specific instructions to prepare Form 2363-A:

  2. Header Area

    1. Employer ID Number (EIN) (Box 1) — Enter the 9 digit Employer Identification Number (EIN).

    2. Name Control (Box 2) — Enter as determined by name or the Name Control as shown on the BMF. We derive the Name Control for EO from the first four significant characters of the name. First position must be an alpha or numeric character. The remaining positions must be alpha, numeric, blank, ampersand or hyphen. Blanks in the Name Control are permissible only at the end of the Name Control to make it a four-position Name control.

      Exception:

      Exclude the word "The" when used as a prefix to the name and the word "The" is followed by more than one word. Also, for "trusts" select Name Control from the surname.

      Examples of Name Controls

      Name Name Control
      Minnow Bass of Free Zinnia MINN
      Fig Daisy Helpers Union FIGD
      (The) Beagle of the Little Apple BEAGSHRI
      Herring Apple Trust HERR
      The Grayling THEG
       

    3. Document Codes (Box 3) — Check the appropriate box. Only one box must be checked per voucher. Document Code 80 is used to update one account on the BMF. This Document Code also may be used to add or update one subordinate of a group ruling once the group parent has been established. When a Document Code 80 is used, the BMF should update only the EIN account shown on the input record. Document Code 81 is used with mass establishments, additions, or changes for group ruling organizations. This is used when the data is the same for all subordinates. When a Document Code 81 is used, the BMF should update each account that is on the GEN File for the parent EIN and From GEN input.

    4. TCs (Box 4) — Check the appropriate box. Only one box must be checked per voucher. For CC EOCHG the TC input should determine the consistency and validity checks that must be done. The required input for each TC with each Document Code follows.

Overview of Group Exemption Procedures

  1. A central organization which is tax exempt under IRC 501(c) may obtain exemption recognition, on a group basis, for subordinate organizations under its general supervision or control. The purpose of the group exemption is to relieve subordinate organizations from filing their own exemption applications.

Group Exemption Requirements

  1. Central organizations that apply for a group exemption letter must obtain their own exempt status recognition. See Sec. 4 of Rev. Proc. 80–27 , 1980–1 C.B. 677, for the requirements for inclusion in a group exemption letter.

  2. Central organizations must establish that the subordinates included in the group exemption letter are:

    1. Affiliated with it.

    2. Subject to its general supervision or control.

    3. Exempt under the same IRC 501(c) paragraph.

      Note:

      The subordinates don’t need to share the same 501(c) paragraph with the central organization.

    4. Not a private foundation, as described in IRC 509(a), if requesting IRC 501(c)(3) status.

    5. In the same accounting period as the central organization, if included in a group return.

    6. Not organized and operated in a foreign country.

  3. Subordinate organizations seeking IRC 501(c)(3) exemption recognition are subject to the 15-month provision of IRC 508(a).

    1. If all subordinate organizations have been formed within the 15-month period before the group exemption application submission date, the subordinate organizations may receive exemption recognition effective as of their creation dates.

    2. However, the IRS may issue a group exemption letter covering subordinates, one or more of which haven’t been organized within the 15-month period before the submission date, if all subordinates are willing to accept exemption recognition as of the application date.

  4. To be included in the group exemption letter, each subordinate organization must submit written authorization to the central organization.

    1. A duly authorized officer of the subordinate must sign the authorization.

    2. The central organization must keep the authorization for as long as the group exemption is in effect.

Exempt Organizations Rulings and Agreements Responsibilities

  1. All applications, except those meeting certain criteria, undergo review by Exempt Organization Ruling and Agreements (EO R&A) in Cincinnati, OH.

  2. EO R&A:

    1. Issues group exemption ruling or determination letters.

    2. Prepares the EO/BMF vouchers on Form 2363–A.

Establishing and Changing Group Exemptions

  1. The following procedures apply for establishing and changing group exemption designations on the EO/BMF.

New Group Exemptions

  1. When ready to issue a group exemption letter, prepare a Form 2363-A voucher in duplicate.

  2. Stamp or annotate Form 2363-A in the upper margin "New Group Exemption Letter" and leave the floating field area (new group exemption number) blank.

  3. Use Form 3210, Document Transmittal, to send the original Form 2363-A to the Ogden Submission Processing Center (OSPC), along with a copy of the list of the subordinates included in the group determinations.

    1. Include all EINs known and attach any SS-4s.

    2. Annotate the subordinate listing, "Form SS-4 previously forwarded to IRS" for each entity, if appropriate.

  4. File a duplicate copy of Form 2363-A in the administrative case file for any follow-up action (i.e., shipment lost in transit, unpostables, etc.).

  5. Enter the following information on the Form 2363-A:

    1. Parent’s name control and EIN (document, transaction and definer codes may be left blank)

    2. Appropriate subsection code (SS)

    3. Foundation code (TF), if the SS is 03

    4. Appropriate classification code(s) (CL)

    5. Status code and date (ST)

    6. Appropriate affiliation code (AF)

    7. Group ruling date (RD)

    8. Organization type (TO)

    9. Fiscal year (FY)

    10. File folder number (FF)

    11. NAICS and NTEE code(s)

    12. Deductibility code year (DY)

    13. Pension plan (PP)

    14. Between 10–35 characters in the remarks area (RM)

    15. Parent’s name, leave address area blank

    16. Appropriate Form 990 filing requirement (see IRM 25.7.1.8.1 (6))

    17. If appropriate, enter a Form 990-T filing requirement

    18. Preparer’s name and symbols

  6. Use these codes to indicate the appropriate Form 990 filing requirement:

    Code Form 990 Filing Requirement
    01 All subordinates over $50,000 gross receipt, or if unknown.
    02 All subordinates $50,000 or less.
    06 Church or integrated auxiliary of a church. Enter an asterisk (*) in the 990 box if the group ruling is for a church. 1
    07 501(c)(1) government instrumentality.

    Note:

    1. Enter in the shaded area to the right of the filing requirements section: "Enter 1 if N/A or 6, if a true church or unknown." This alerts OSPC employees to give a non-integrated auxiliary of a church filing a Form 990 a filing requirement of 1, or give an integrated auxiliary of a church, or if it is unknown whether an entity is integrated or non-integrated, a filing requirement of 6.

Changing Group Exemptions

  1. Use these procedures to change group exemptions.

    IF changing… THEN…
    The group exemption Prepare Form 2363-A.
    An existing group exemption Process Form 2363-A for the central (parent) organization and affected subordinates.
    From an individual to group exemption Document Code 80 (TC 0l6).

  2. If the group ruling affects all subordinates, update all entities covered under the group ruling by using the GEN in the "From GEN" field of the floating field area and the name control and EIN of the parent. This changes all entities established with the specific GEN entered, e.g., subsection/classification change for all entities.

    Note:

    Use the correct GEN, Name Control and EIN of the parent, as both are validated by the computer and if either does not validate, the change will be unpostable.

  3. EO R&A: prepare mass change Form 2363-A, Request for IDRS Input for BMF/EO Entity Change, as follows:

    1. Floating fields

    2. Enter new data as appropriate

    3. Fixed fields: Leave blank (can’t be used for mass changes)

    4. Remarks section

    5. Check document code 81 at the top

    6. Forward mass posting voucher under separate cover to the local terminal input function

    7. In addition to the mass posting voucher, prepare another Form 2363-A marked "Pilot Voucher" in the upper right-hand corner, entering the same data elements as listed in IRM 7.20.3.7.6.2 (1).

  4. You can only change the following fields en masse:

    1. Subsection/classification/foundation codes

    2. Status code and date

    3. New GEN with affiliation code entered and ruling date (merger)

    4. Deductibility code and year

    5. Activity codes (NAICS and NTEE)

    6. DOL (only if all subordinates are located within the same district)

    7. File folder number

    8. Abbreviation name

    9. Fiscal year/month (only if all subordinates are included in a group return)

Group Exemption Mergers

  1. EO R&A: When you complete the review and approval process, send group ruling merger correspondence ( i.e., the merger of two group rulings or two group rulings merging to form a new group) to Ogden Campus, Attn: Entity Control Function. OSPC:

    1. Update the BMF (except name and address changes for subordinates) to reflect the mergers.

    2. Prepare and distribute new pilot vouchers to the administrative file in Cincinnati.

  2. EO R&A: If we already recognized a subordinate as tax exempt under IRC 501(c), prepare Form 2363-A to change the individual ruling/determination status to a group exemption status.

OSPC Responsibilities

  1. OSPC:

    1. Establish the group exemption number (GEN) on masterfile.

    2. Maintain the annual supplemental group ruling information (SGRI) listing.

Supplemental Group Ruling Information (SGRI)

  1. To maintain a group exemption letter, the central organization must submit annually to the IRS various statements and listings as described in Sec. 6 of Rev. Proc. 80-27. This material is due 90 days before the close of its annual accounting period. Group returns are filed at OSPC which processes EO returns.

  2. Organizations submit their own listings that contain all information required by Rev. Proc. 80–27.

  3. OSPC must write to the central organization, if they don’t receive the supplemental information within 90 days before the end of the parents’ accounting period.

Group Exemption Roster

  1. Document 6023, Group Exemption Roster, helps us identify organizations covered by group exemptions and provides key exemption data. It serves as a convenient reference to outstanding group exemptions when we:

    1. Process applications for exemption.

    2. Prepare vouchers for the BMF System.

    3. Respond to requests for group exemption information.

    4. Process unpostable Forms 990, Return of Organization Exempt from Income Tax.

  2. The roster reprints semiannually to reflect all active parent accounts as of the date of issuance. It contains a(n):

    1. Alphabetical listing of organizations covered by group exemptions.

    2. Numerical listing in group exemption number (GEN) order.

    3. Table of BMF abbreviations for group exemption organizations, where applicable. It also identifies the number of organizations with the same GEN.

  3. The alphabetic listing for each group exemption includes the:

    1. Name of the organization

    2. The home city and state of the central organization

    3. The IRC 501(c) exemption subsection

    4. The group exemption letter date

    5. Group exemption number (GEN)

    6. Parents’ EIN

    7. BMF standard abbreviation for the organization (where applicable)

  4. The names of the central organizations are alphabetically listed as they appear on BMF.

  5. The table of BMF abbreviations lists the abbreviations in alphabetic sequence and is cross-referenced to the organization’s name as it appears in the main listing.

  6. There’s no requirement for a central organization to certify that its group roster doesn’t contain subordinate organizations that are currently autorevoked.

    Reminder:

    However, Notice 2011-44 states that an organization whose exemption has been revoked for failure to file for three years can’t reinstate that exemption by joining a group exemption ruling as a subordinate or getting the central organization to add it back to the group exemption roster. The autorevoked entity must apply for exemption, whether or not it was originally required to so apply.

Group Exemption Number (GEN) File

  1. The GEN file is a computer file controlling the EO/BMF accounts of every parent or subordinate organization containing a GEN. It:

    1. Ensures every group exemption has only one parent account.

    2. Prevents a subordinate account from establishing unless a parent containing that GEN already exists.

    3. Stops invalid GEN’s or affiliation codes from passing on to the EO/BMF.

  2. IDRS compares every entity change transaction containing either a "From GEN" or "New GEN" to the GEN file before posting to the EO/BMF.

    1. Transactions failing to pass GEN file validity checks unpost with Unpostable Code 370, and return to the initiator.

    2. Transactions that pass GEN file validity checks generate either new or updated accounts on the GEN file, and post to the EO/BMF.

  3. The GEN file contains the following information:

    1. Parent EIN, name control, affiliation code and organization name.

    2. Subordinate EIN, name control and affiliation code.

Group Returns

  1. A central organization may file, in addition to its own annual information return, a group return on behalf of two or more of its subordinate organizations covered by a group exemption letter which are:

    1. Affiliated with the central organization at the close of its annual accounting period.

    2. Subject to the central organization’s general supervision.

    3. Tax exempt under the same IRC 501(c) paragraph.

      Note:

      The subordinate organizations don’t have to share the same paragraph of the central organization.

    4. Filed on the basis of the established annual accounting period of the central organization.

    Note:

    See 26 CFR Reg. 1.6033–2(d).

  2. An agency of the federal, state, or local government, although not required to file information returns for itself, may file a group return on Form 990 on behalf of subordinates under its supervision covered by a group exemption letter.

  3. The group return may include only those exempt subordinates that:

    1. Authorized in writing to include them in the return.

    2. Provided statements specifying gross income, receipts and disbursements to the central organization.

    3. Gave required related information to be stated in the return.

  4. Organizations file the group return with the OSPC, which processes EO returns. Filing a group return is in lieu of filing separate returns for each of the subordinate organizations included in the group return.

  5. The group return has separate schedules attached which include names, addresses and ElNs of all subordinates, both included and excluded from the return.

  6. Since exempt subordinate units may opt in or out of a group return, OSPC establishes all subordinates in a new group letter on the EO/BMF with a Form 990 filing requirement of "1" (gross receipts are over $50,000). This ensures that we check for return filings for subordinate units which do not elect to be included in a group return are checked for return filings.

  7. Some central organizations generally include all exempt subordinates in a group return and operate in such a manner as to eliminate the need for separate return controls on the EO/BMF for subordinates.

  8. Campus processing of group returns includes:

    1. Perfecting the return.

    2. Posting the receipt of the group return for the central organization.

    3. Posting of satisfaction of filing requirements (TC 590) to the EO/BMF accounts of exempt subordinate organizations included in the group return.

    4. Subsequent storage and maintenance of the return.

  9. When an exempt central organization files a separate return for itself and files a group return for its subordinates, BMF won’t accept both returns unless there are separate entity records, each with a different EIN.

    1. When there is only one entity record, OSPC prepares Form 2363-A to reflect the same entity data as that found on the pilot voucher entry. OSPC adds the words "Group Return" to the end of the name of the organization and assigns a separate EIN the new entity entry.

    2. The deductibility code is 2 and filing requirement code is 3 (990 — Group Return). This permits both returns to post to BMF (one individual and one group return). The group return entry won’t appear in the cumulative list.

Federally-Chartered Organizations

  1. Certain organizations covered by group exemption letters and required to file EO returns (including both central and subordinate organizations) aren’t on the EO/BMF. This includes subordinate units of federally-chartered IRC 501(c)(1) exempt organizations controlled and regulated by another government agency and subject to the supervision, periodic audit and examination procedures of the agency. In these cases, an EO/BMF account exists for the central organization only.

    1. Federal credit unions

    2. Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation

    3. Federal home loan banks

    4. Federal land banks

    5. Federal intermediate credit banks

    6. Federal National Mortgage Association

    7. Federal land bank associations (formerly national farm loan associations)

    8. Federal reserve banks

    9. Federal Savings and Loan Insurance Corporation (FSLIC)

    10. Public Housing Administration

  2. State and municipal instrumentalities aren’t tax exempt under IRC 501(c)(1).

  3. IRC 501(c)(1) refers to certain instrumentalities of the United States organized under Acts of Congress. In order to establish IRC 501(c)(1) exemption, Congress must specifically:

    1. Provide for the corporation’s exemption in the Internal Revenue Code,

    2. Provide in a non-Code provision of a revenue act, or

    3. List the corporation in IRC 501(c)(1).

  4. IRC 501(c)(1) exempt organizations aren’t subject to the Form 990 filing requirement provisions of IRC 6033 if they are corporations wholly owned by:

    1. The United States

    2. An agency

    3. An instrumentality thereof

State-Chartered Credit Unions

  1. We may omit state-chartered credit unions covered by group returns, included in group exemptions, from the EO/BMF.

    1. IRC 501(c)(14)(A) provides exemption from federal income tax for credit unions without capital stock, organized and operated for mutual purposes and without profit. State law determines whether organizations are credit unions. Generally, we consider an organization formed under a state credit union law, subject to the supervision of a state agency, such as a state banking commissioner, to be a state-chartered credit union.

    2. State-chartered credit unions are authorized in most states.

      Exception:

      Alaska, Delaware, Hawaii, Nevada, South Dakota, Wyoming and the District of Columbia.

    3. To qualify as a credit union under IRC 501(c)(14)(A), a credit union must hold a charter under a state credit union law, and operate without profit and for the mutual benefit of its members.

State-Chartered Credit Union
  1. A state agency may file a Form 990, group information return, for the exempt state-chartered credit unions under its supervision and control (Rev. Rul. 60–364 , 1960–2 C.B. 382.)

    1. The parent organizations filing group returns are usually controlling state agencies who are neither entitled to exemption under IRC 501(a), nor required to file Forms 990 on their own behalf. Most, but not all, state agencies filing group returns for credit unions in their states obtained a group exemption from the IRS.

    2. This presents an exception to other parent organizations which file group returns. Other parent organizations must obtain group exemption numbers and must file Forms 990 for themselves, in addition to any group return filed on behalf of their subordinates.

  2. We process group returns filed by controlling state agencies for their state-chartered credit unions on the EO/BMF according to whether or not we issued the state a group exemption.

    1. OSPC processes group returns filed by states in receipt of group exemptions in the same manner as normal group returns. OSPC assigns a Form 990 filing requirement of "3" (group return filer), and adds the words "group return" to the end of the parent’s name line.

    2. OSPC processes group returns filed by states not in receipt of group exemptions according to whether the parent organization has an account established on the EO/BMF.

    IF… THEN…
    Group returns filed by States that Assign these accounts a…
    Don’t have accounts on the EO/BMF. Establish on MF with IDRS Transaction Code 000. Form 990 Filing Requirement of "01" and add "group return" to the EO/BMF following the name line.
    Have accounts on the EO/BMF. Update on MF with IDRS Transaction Code 016. Form 990 Filing Requirements of "01" and also add "group return" to the name line.

Overview of Standard Extract Program

  1. The Exempt Organizations (EO) Standard Extract Program is a computer program that is run monthly (except in January) at the Martinsburg Computing Center (MCC), to extract entity and limited return information from EO accounts on the Business Master File (BMF).

  2. IRS employees, and, to the extent provided in IRC 6104 members of the general public may use Standard Extract listings

  3. Standard Extract data has proven useful in providing information on specific types or classes of organizations, without doing special programming to extract this data. Typical examples for using this data include:

    1. Identify all organizations exempt under a specific IRC subsection

    2. All status 20 organizations located within a certain Area Office (AO)

    3. All organizations containing a specific group exemption number, activity code (see Document 6379, Exempt Organizations Management Information Systems Codes) or accounting period, etc..

  4. You may use downloadable EO files found on https://www.irs.gov/charities-non-profits/exempt-organizations-business-master-file-extract-eo-bmf, and data on the Return Information Control System (RICS) database, to obtain extracts previously handled by the standard extract program.

Management Information Reports

  1. The following management information reports are sent to the AO:

    1. Private School Listing

    2. Group Exemption Roster (Document 6023)

    3. EO Private Foundation Listing

Group Exemption Roster

  1. The Group Exemption Roster serves as a convenient reference and provides key data on:

    1. Processing applications for exemption (EACS/EDS)

    2. Preparing vouchers for the Master File systems

    3. Processing required returns from EOs

    4. Responding to information requests concerning organizations holding group exemptions.

  2. Document 6023, Group Exemption Roster is produced semi-annually in February and August. The document contains:

    1. A table of Master File abbreviations for organizations holding group exemptions.

    2. An alphabetic listing of all central organizations covered by a group exemption still in effect.

    3. A listing, in numeric sequence by Group Exemption Number, of all active group rulings.

  3. The alphabetic listing will show all accounts with:

    1. An Affiliation Code of "6" or "8" (parent)

    2. The Parent’s name (50 characters)

    3. EIN

    4. Group Exemption Number (GEN)

    5. Ruling date

    6. Subsection Code

    7. Classification Code(s)

    8. Status Code

    9. File Folder Number

    10. Primary Activity Code

    11. Deductibility Code and Year

    12. The City and State where the parent is currently located

  4. The total number of active central organizations, as of the revision date, is at the end of the alphabetic listing, following the last account. The numeric listing contains the same organizations in GEN order but also shows the number of subordinate organizations with the same GEN (Number of Local Affiliates or NLA). This information may be used to reply to inquiries concerning the number of active subordinates with the same GEN. It also contains the parent EIN and GEN.

  5. The roster can be used to identify organizations that may be covered by a group ruling. See IRM 25.7.1.17.2, Group Exemption Roster, for an explanation.

EO Private Foundation Listing

  1. The EO Private Foundation Listing is a list of all active BMF accounts with an EO Foundation Code of "02" , "03" or "04."

    1. It is produced each February and is sorted by state, so that each state can be found separately.

    2. Within each state, the listing is sorted by Asset Code (high to low) and finally alphabetically.

    3. This means that the Asset Code 9’s will appear first alphabetically, then down to the zeros being last.

    4. The Asset Code is printed on the first line of each account on the right-hand side.

  2. At the end of each state, there is a summary of accounts for that state showing the total number of private foundations in that state by Asset Code. Also included is a summary of the Income Codes, even though the Income Code doesn’t show on any listing page. This is for statistical purposes.

  3. Organizations with a Foundation Code "02," exempt operating foundations, and "03," operating foundation, will have the literal "OP" (operating foundation) in the "Foundation Type" field. Organizations with a Foundation Code "04," non-operating, show the literal "NO."

Status 40 Register

  1. EO Entity in the Ogden Submission Processing Center (OSPC) works the Status 40 responses to an auto generated CP 120, Confirmation of Tax-Exempt Status Required. Hard copies of the register are no longer generated.

Overview of Cumulative List

  1. The Cumulative List of organizations (CL) described in Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (IRC) 170(c), CL, commonly known as Publication 78, is a computer generated listing of names of organizations. These organizations have been determined to be entitled to receive tax deductible contributions by donors, as provided in IRC 170.

  2. The CL provides information and guidance on exempt organizations to both Service personnel and the public. With few exceptions, the CL includes only those organizations that hold a ruling or determination letter that specifically states that contributions to the organization are tax deductible.

  3. The exempt organization (EO) community has become increasingly dependent upon their listings in the CL to prove to potential contributors that contributions to them are deductible. The fact that an organization may hold a favorable determination letter is often not sufficient to satisfy some contributors, especially in those cases where the Service issued an organization’s letter many years ago.

  4. Generally, the CL program has been effective in identifying IRC 170 organizations. However, as with any computer-generated listing, it is only as good as the data extracted. Therefore, it is imperative that the EO entity data contained on the BMF be accurate. Every Service employee who issues a determination or conducts an examination of an exempt organization, is responsible for ensuring that the Master File reflects any actions taken and that any other errors identified on a Master File entity are corrected.

Publication 78 On-Line Procedures

  1. The CL (Publication 78 data) is available in a researchable database on the Internet. It is one part of the Tax Exempt Organization Search Application that also includes the cumulative listing of organizations whose exemption has been revoked, the database of 990-N filings, Determination Letters, and Copies of Returns. This database may be used for researching exempt organizations who have been granted contribution deductibility, and is available to anyone with Internet access.

  2. A user-friendly format allows for a search by the EIN, name, or portions of the name, city, state, or Deductibility Status Code.

  3. The listing is accessible through the "Charities & Non-Profits" section on the IRS website (http://www.irs.gov/Charities-&-Non-Profits ), by selecting the Tax Exempt Organization Search topic, and is updated monthly (except for January).

  4. This file is also found in a downloadable format on the website.

Cumulative List Specifications

  1. To be included on the Cumulative List, an organization must have:

    1. a Deductibility Code 1 or 4 (treaty) , and

    2. a Subsection Code of 01, 03, 04, 08, 10, 13, 19, 50, 60 or 70, and

    3. an Affiliation Code of 1, 2, 3, 6 or 8 (selects group centrals and independents but eliminates subordinates), and

    4. a Status Code of 01, 02, or 25 (an active entity), and

    5. a Form 990 Filing Requirement of 1, 2, 6 or 7, or Form 990–PF Filing Requirement of 1 , 2 or 3.

  2. IRC 501(c)(3) (referred to as subsection (c)(3)) entries for subordinates included in group exemptions or Group Return accounts are not included in the CL (Pub 78 data).

  3. Any organization that requests to be listed in the CL and has not been issued a ruling or determination letters, must apply for such a letter to be included in the CL. In the past, several dummy entries for widely known religious, charitable and educational organizations that had not formally applied for ruling or determination letters were added to the CL. This practice is no longer permitted under current CL procedures.

  4. Non-Exempt Charitable Trusts, BMF/Subsection Codes 90, 91 and 92 NECTS, are not included despite the other criteria. These are included on the BMF only for returns processing purposes.

Cumulative List Coding Specifications

  1. Codes for the CL identify each organization listed by type and limitation on deductibility. The codes, with an explanation of each, are as follows:

    Code Type of organization and use Deductibility Limitation Programming
    PC A public charity 50%  
    POF A private operating foundation 50% Foundation Code is 02 or 03 and the Current EO Status Code is not 25
    PF A private foundation 30% (generally) Foundation Code is 04 and the Current EO Status Code is not 25
    GROUP Generally, a central organization holding a group exemption letter, whose subordinate units covered by the group exemption are also eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions, even though they are not separately listed. Depends on various factors Affiliation Code 06 or 08
    LODGE A domestic fraternal society, operating under the lodge system, but only if the contribution is to be used exclusively for charitable purposes. 30% Current Subsection Code 08 or 10
    UNKWN A charitable organization whose public charity status has not been determined. Depends on various factors Current Subsection Code is 03 and the Foundation Code is 09
    EO An organization described in IRC 170(c) other than a public charity or private foundation. Depends on various factors Current Subsection Code is 04, 08, 10, 13 or 19 OR Current Subsection Code is 01 and the Activity Codes present are other than 925
    FED An organization to which contributions are deductible if made for the use of a federal governmental unit. 50% Current Subsection Code is 01 and at least one of the Activity Codes is 925
    FORGN A foreign-addressed organization. These are generally organizations formed in the United States that conduct activities in foreign countries. Certain foreign organizations that receive charitable contributions deductible pursuant to treaty are also included, as are organizations created in U.S. possessions Depends on various factors Universal Location Code is 98 and the State is ., indicating a foreign address
    SO A type 1, type 2, or functionally integrated type 3 supporting organization 50% Foundation Code is 21, 22, or 23
    SONFI A non-functionally integrated type 3 supporting organization 50% Foundation Code is 24
    SOUNK A supporting organization, unspecified type 50% Foundation Code is 17

Processing Cumulative List Inquiries

  1. Inquiries regarding omissions, coding errors, etc. should be referred to the Cincinnati Area Office (AO) Customer Service Unit. If a special listing is requested or a systemic problem is suspected, refer to TE/GE HQ (SE:T:HQ:SS:BSP:SPP).

  2. Inquiries received at service centers must be forwarded to the Cincinnati AO for resolution and response.

Omissions and Errors

  1. AOs are responsible for correcting the BMF if necessary, and responding to the inquirer. This includes referrals of inquiries other than those described herein.

    1. Omission inquiries should be handled using the unpostable procedures.

    2. For omissions where there is a BMF entity but it fails to meet the CL criteria described in IRM 25.7.1.16 , review the entity data, make corrections if necessary, and reply to the requester.

  2. Copies of ruling or determination letters referred to AOs or Cincinnati by the Ogden Submission Processing Center (OSPC) are reviewed to decide if Form 2363A, Exempt organization BMF Entity Change, should be prepared to add the exempt organization to the file.

  3. Inquiries about CL codes are reviewed and the BMF is corrected, if necessary, to reflect correct deductibility limitation codes. Such corrections may include a change to the BMF Foundation Code, Subsection Code, etc.

  4. Inquiries regarding the alphabetic placement of an organization’s name in the CL should be researched to decide if that placement is correct.

    If ... Then ...
    the name is correctly listed, inform the inquirer that a change to their listing will require that their governing instrument (articles of incorporation, bylaws, etc.) be amended to reflect their correct legal name.
    a legal name is incorrectly placed, prepare Form 2363A with a TC 013 to correct.

Coordination between HQ and AO

  1. AOs are responsible for assisting HQ in those instances where they are unable to decide the validity of a CL omission, inclusion, coding error, etc., through EO/BMF research. This assistance may consist of securing an organization’s administrative file to decide a cause. It may also be necessary to coordinate with other functional areas, e.g., Appeals, Reporting Compliance SE:T:EO, or Regional Counsel, etc.

  2. SE:T:BSP and QAM:MSB:EO provide advice and direction to the continuous CL purification.

  3. Office of Business Systems Planning, Submission Processing Programs, SE:T:BSP:SPP is responsible for—

    1. preparing any necessary documents and initiate any coordination with other Service functions to identify and correct any systemic errors encountered in the CL program, or

    2. to include or delete an organization from the CL where normal BMF processing does not provide for the situation.

CL Name File

  1. A CL Name File at the Martinsburg Computing Center (MCC), accepts input only from SE:T:HQ:SS:BSP:SPP. This file contains a generic listing of well-known religious denominations and several organizations listed in the CL under names other than the legal names shown on their ruling or determination letters. This file is to be used for the following reasons:

    1. Dummy Accounts — Those that have never applied for or received a ruling or determination letter.

    2. Special Capitalization — When an organization uses an abbreviation that would not normally be capitalized, e.g., ABC Foundation. The computer would print this name as Abc Foundation.

  2. This supplemental file provides a regularly-updated entity listing for Publication 78. MCC must run this special file monthly.

Multiple Listings

  1. Coordinate Cumulative List matters involving group exemptions with HQ, SE:T:HQ:SS:BSP:SPP.

  2. Many organizations are generally known by names other than the legal name under which a ruling or determination letter was issued. Organizations that do business under another name or an acronym, e.g., CARE, may be unknown to potential contributors and Service personnel under their legal names. Therefore, the Cumulative List Name File can be used to establish an entry under its commonly known name and also its legal name. The Service’s policy is to discourage multiple listings in the CL. However, in rare circumstances, an organization may be given one additional listing if requested in writing to SE:T:HQ:SS:BSP:SPP. Requests for more than one additional listing will be denied.

  1. Prior to 2012, the CL indicator is a code that, if input to an EO entity , would cause that EO entity to appear in the next printed quarterly supplement to the CL, rather than the next complete annual revision extracted at the end of October. This code enabled Service personnel to relist an organization that may have been erroneously omitted, or that successfully contested a revocation of its IRC 170(c) status because of a declaratory judgment suit.

  2. Since January 2012, the cumulative list is updated monthly and is no longer printed, so the Cumulative List Indicator should not be used.

Overview of Exempt Organizations/Business Master File (EO/BMF) Reports

  1. Exempt Organizations/Business Master File (EO/BMF) outputs consist of management information/statistical tabulation summaries.

  2. EO outputs consist of two general types:

    1. Existing BMF outputs

    2. EO/BMF outputs

Schedule Posting Cycles

  1. The production of EO outputs from the BMF is based on a schedule at the Martinsburg Computer Center (MCC). Most EO outputs are produced monthly. The Ogden Submission Processing Center (OSPC) processes EO returns and entity transactions weekly. This includes data entry through the Integrated Submission and Remittance Processing System (ISRP) and error correction for all errors detected during computer processing at the service center. . Any return or entity transaction input that is not acceptable at MCC will become unpostable. EO unpostables are returned to OSPC for resolution under the Generalized Unpostable Framework (GUF) system.

  2. Periodically (monthly, quarterly, etc.), MCC will produce EO outputs to reflect all returns and entity transactions posted to BMF since the last time that particular output was produced.

  3. Since MCC processes weekly, it can accept requests for returns from AIMS, search for the return(s) (bulk order) and generate either an AIMS reject or AIMS opening account. Both of these are sent back to the OSPC for printing, in the case of the reject register or "loading" onto the AIMS Data Base at the service center. At this point the return charge-out and AIMS labels are printed.

  4. EP/EO Determination System/EP/EO Application Control System (EDS/EACS) updates its data base and sends any TC 000, or TC 016, to the BMF weekly. However, it is possible that the EDS/EACS TC 000 will unpost since the EIN could conceivably be on the BMF before the TC 000 attempts to post.
