Introduction

  1. This section provides administrative directives and processing procedures for remittances in Campus Deposit Operations. Administrative directives include cash management, managerial product review, security, and reporting responsibilities.

  2. Campuses continue to receive obsolete forms and/or documents with tax payments. Therefore, the procedures for these obsolete forms and/or documents must remain for correct applications of payments.

  3. To ensure accuracy and timely deposits, employees of the Deposit Function must familiarize themselves with the related resources shown in IRM 3.8.44.1.7, Related Resources..

  4. It is required to submit Internal Revenue Manual (IRM) deviations in writing following instructions from IRM 1.11.2.2, Internal Management Documents System - Internal Revenue Manual (IRM) Process, IRM Standards, and elevated through proper channels for executive approval.

Cash Management Responsibilities

  1. The Internal Revenue Service is committed to ensuring a 24-hour deposit standard. As we move toward attaining that goal through improved technology, it is of the utmost importance to deposit the largest amount of money in the shortest possible time frame to achieve good cash management practices. Management at all levels must monitor the flow of receipts to ensure that this objective is achieved. Close of business for a deposit is the final deposit for a deposit date as identified by the date on the deposit ticket. As of 01/01/2016, Internal Revenue Service no longer processes remittances of $100 million or more. See IRM 3.8.44.6.3(6) for handling of $100 Million or more remittances.

    Note:

    Remittances received on Saturday, Sunday, and holidays do not require depositing until the next business day (the day following the weekend/holiday).

  2. The Receipt and Control Operations Manager is responsible for the receipt, safeguard, accuracy, and timely deposit of all monies received in payment to the government through the Internal Revenue Service. Maintaining the integrity of the IRS received date is required. Credit all payments for the earliest date a payment is received by the Internal Revenue Service or the Department of the Treasury. See Exhibit 3.8.44-3, Timely Postmark Check List, for more information on timely postmarks.

  3. Deposit remittances of $100,000.00 or more on the day of extraction. If the remittance is extracted after the daily cut-off time for processing the daily deposit, deposit the remittance with the next scheduled deposit.

  4. Deposit remittances of $50,000.00 and up on the same day of extraction. If the remittance is extracted after the daily cut-off time for processing of the daily deposit, deposit the remittance by the next business day (excluding Saturdays and Sundays).

  5. The extended cycle for depositing receipts for the April peak completion date is determined by Wage and Investment Operating Division and sent to the campuses via memorandum.

  6. During the following mini-peak periods, extended cycles must not exceed 5 business days. However, it is possible to extend the deposit cycle a maximum of 2 workdays. See IRM 3.30.123, Processing Timeliness Cycles, Criteria and Critical Dates, for more information.

    1. Form 1040 series, during the October period

    2. Form 1120 series, during the March period

    3. Form 720 series, during the February, March, May, August, and November periods

    4. During the January and September 15th periods, when the Internal Revenue Service receives large volumes of mail

  7. It is possible to extend the deposit cycle a maximum of three workdays during the January, April, July, and October 31, periods, when the Internal Revenue Service received larger volumes of returns.

  8. During the above-mentioned peak periods, use multiple smaller daily deposit cuts to avoid OTCNet file transfer bottlenecks and continue to deposit the largest amount of money in the shortest time frame. take into consideration prior year receipts and production standards balanced with approved projected changes (e.g., consolidation issues, transshipping, increase in Electronic Filing System (ELF), changes in Lockbox volume, etc.). See IRM 3.8.45, Manual Deposit Process, for more cash management guidelines.

Managerial Responsibilities (Product Review of Final Deposit)

  1. Receipt and Control deposit managers must ensure the release of a quality balanced deposit.

    Note:

    DO NOT RELEASE DEPOSITS WITH OUT-OF-BALANCE CONDITIONS TO THE DEPOSITARIES.

  2. Deposit managers must perform regular reviews of completed work accumulated in final deposit area.

  3. Conduct the review on 5 percent of the remittances during non-peak periods.

  4. After a deposit cut on the BancTec Scanners, fan the lower right corner of the block of remittances verifying that the Magnetic-Ink Character Recognition (MICR) encoded amount agrees with written amount of remittances. Review remittances for breaks in MICR encoded digits and for improper encoding, for example, encoded upside down. Also review the first and last check to ensure the audit trail is complete and legible.

  5. Deposit managers or appointed representatives must conduct a 100 percent review of deposits prior to release on a given day of each week. Continue the reviews until deposits reach 100 percent accuracy on a regular basis and controllable deposit discrepancies reach below 100 cumulative items.

  6. Prepare an action plan for conducting the reviews.

    1. Schedule review dates. (Do not use the same day of the week on a regular basis.)

    2. Initiate action if the 24-hour deposit cycle is missed.

    3. Record any unbalanced blocks, slipped blocks, encoding errors, piggyback checks, etc.

    4. Provide employee feedback.

    5. Provide more training if necessary.

  7. Schedule a meeting with Accounting Operations, when necessary, to review discrepancies discovered during the 100 percent Product Review. Record all discrepancies and follow-up annotate action accordingly.

Managerial Responsibilities (Integrated Submission and Remittance Processing (ISRP) Deposit End of Day (EOD) Processing Guidelines When Working Outside the Scope of a Normal Workday)

  1. When working overtime during a weekend, holiday, or on a day that is typically outside the scope of a normal workday (i.e., working a Friday night for a Sunday - Thursday shift), the need for End of Day (EOD) processing may exist. Successful posting of deposits to RRACs is dependent on each Site’s Deposit Operation notifying EOps and RRACs when EOD processing is necessary. Deposits that do not successfully post to RRACs poses a significant impact to your Site’s Accounting function, and various support functions.

  2. Tips for EOD Processing

    1. Do not merge Deposit Dates into one Deposit Date

    2. Perform only one EOD for each Deposit Date

    3. It is possible to open a new Deposit Date, once the previous Deposit Date is closed and the EOD is complete for the closed Deposit Date. Thus, a Deposit Date does not have to match the system date nor the calendar date.

    4. It is possible to span several calendar days with one Deposit Date. This is done with a Monday Deposit Date covering the weekend before, if no “deposit cut” is done and only one deposit cut off is performed at the conclusion of the Deposit Date. This is typically done when a site wishes to work overtime on a weekend date to catch up on the previous weeks receipts or to get ahead of incoming Monday receipts. Use Monday’s date as the weekend Processing Date, and do not perform “deposit cut” at the end of the weekend shift. Only one EOD is performed after the end of the normal Monday day shift to include deposit receipts processed Saturday through Monday day shift.

    5. When deposits receipts become large, or with the change of work shift from day shift to night shift, Integrated Submission and Remittance Processing (ISRP) allows multiple “deposit cuts” within a deposit date. Remittances would go to the bank on each cut, this includes the last cut. Then at the end of the Deposit Date, one End of Day is done that includes all deposit cuts.

    6. When working overtime during a weekend, holiday, or on a day that is typically outside the scope of a normal workday, it is critical to operations that both the RPS Area and the ISRP EOps understand what the site work the site is planning to work during the overtime hours, what support is necessary, and whether an EOD is required. Open a Knowledge Incident/Problem Service Asset Management (KISAM) ticket to EOps when an EOD is necessary.

  3. Once ISRP Deposit determines the need for EOD processing, the site must provide notification as outlined below.

    1. Open a KISAM ticket and assign to the two groups listed below. Open a separate ticket for each day requested.
      EOps assignment group - EOps-ECC-WSSB-TSS-SPS
      RRACS assignment group -&IT ACIOAD-RRACS-Developers

Managerial Responsibilities (Peak Processing Extended Hardware Maintenance Shift Cancellation Procedures)

  1. Every December each Submission Processing Site provides the Deposit Headquarters Analyst with the Site’s projected peak processing Deposit shift schedule. This schedule is necessary to ensure each site is provided with the contracted maintenance coverage during April peak processing. Headquarters Integrated Submission and Remittance Processing (ISRP) Project Management Office (PMO) and Headquarter Deposit Analyst issues a final Extended Hardware Maintenance Schedule prior to April peak processing. Carefully review your site’s final schedule, and follow the instructions provided below if management determines it is necessary to cancel a shift that is shown on your site’s final April peak processing extended hardware maintenance schedule. Failure to follow the instruction below results in an unnecessary cost paid to the contracted vendor.

    1. When cancelling a weekday shift, perform the steps below at least 10 hours prior to the beginning of the cancelled shift. If the cancelled shift is a night shift or weekend shift, complete the steps below at least 26 hours prior to the beginning of the cancelled shift.

    2. Open a Knowledge Incident/Problem Service Asset Management (KISAM) ticket and assign directly to ISRP PMO KISAM group “AD-SP-PPB-ISRP”.

    3. Call the local Systems Analyst (SA) to notify them of the opened ticket.

    4. Call the Headquarters ISRP PMO management to notify them of the opened ticket. If voice mail is reached, leave a message. ISRP PMO provides the names and telephone numbers to the site ISRP Coordinator every April.

    5. Send a follow-up e-mail to the ISRP PMO management, and local Operations Specialist with a copy of the “Shift Cancellation Log” (completed up to the “PMO Contact” column). ISRP PMO provides the log to the site ISRP Coordinator every April.

Managerial Responsibilities (Deposit BancTec Scanners Operation Hardware and Software Problems)

Deposit Procedures (General)

  1. Process all checks, drafts and money orders payable through normal banking channels through the campus deposit activity. Deposit any remittance eligible for perfection to negotiability regardless of the amount.

  2. Deposit all items either through the Residual Remittance Processing System (RRPS) or manual processing. See IRM 3.8.45.1.9, for a list of payments processed through manual processing.

  3. Deposit remittances received in the Campuses into one of the five types of funds: Revenue Receipts (Master File and Automated Non-Master File), Deposit Funds, General Funds, Repayment of Refund Appropriations, or other Receipts Fund.

  4. Remittances received and deposited into the REVENUE RECEIPTS Fund consist of the following items:

    1. Internal Revenue taxes, penalties, interest and costs, assessed or assessable against taxpayers,

    2. Payments on accepted offers in compromise,

    3. Payment of court fines, court costs, forfeitures, penalties incident to or imposed for violation of Internal Revenue laws, from the redemption of property acquired by the government, and

    4. Receipts from consummated sales of acquired property.

  5. Remittances received and deposited into the DEPOSIT Fund (ISRP Program 00002) consist of the following items:

    1. Payments tendered as offers in compromise,

    2. Offers of prospective bidders of payments for the sale of seized property

    3. Offers to bid or initialize payments under a deferred payment sale of acquired property.

    4. Other payments may be deposited to this account when required by specific instructions. See Exhibit 3.8.44-26, Special Account Funds Table, for accounting fund codes for Deposit Fund deposits.

  6. Remittances received and deposited into the GENERAL Fund (Integrated Submission and Remittance Processing (ISRP) Program 00003) consist of payments under Federal Firearms Act and fees for the duplication of records. See Exhibit 3.8.44-26 for accounting fund codes for General Fund deposits.

  7. Remittances received and deposited into the REPAYMENT TO REFUND APPROPRIATIONS Fund (ISRP Program 00004) consist of recoveries of erroneous, duplicate, or overpaid refunds or fraudulently negotiated checks. See Exhibit 3.8.44-26 for accounting fund codes for Repayment to Refund Appropriations Fund deposits.

  8. Remittances received and deposited into the OTHER RECEIPTS Fund consist of special fees and miscellaneous non-revenue receipts. See Exhibit 3.8.44-26, for accounting fund codes for Other Receipt Fund deposits.

Remittance Processing System (RPS)

  1. RPS is a multi-functional remittance processing system for processing payments and the control of related source documents. It computerizes the recap of each day's deposit information, simultaneously preparing tapes to post credits to taxpayers' accounts.

  2. The basic steps of the system include: Original Entry (OE), Key Verification (KV), and the BancTec Scanners process. The BancTec Scanners process includes vouchers/remittances corrections, balancing, encoding, endorsing, document locator number (DLN) assignment, remittance imaging, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) reading scan lines from vouchers and the courtesy amounts from remittances, and generation of the end point sorting and deposit reports.

    Note:

    See IRM 3.24.133, Residual Remittance Processing for OE and KV procedures.

  3. Non-Master File (NMF), program 00001, causes increased more workload in Accounting due to not having abstract number on back of Form 813, Document Register, Revenue Accounting Control System (RACS) journalization; error code on Service Center Control File (SCCF) with invalid Document Locator Number (DLN). NMF remittances processed on RPS and not established on the SCCF.

  4. During the pilot, Austin determined that the number of split payments one Entry Operator (EOP) should enter is 700 transactions for the same check. Under manual process (manual deposit) procedures, the list can be assigned to multiple clerks for original entry. Documents or checks omitted at original entry cannot be added to the batch at key verification to balance the batch.

  5. Use programs 15500 and 45500 for splits with multiple MFTs or use manual processing procedures. Do not use programs 15510 and 45510 for splits with multiple MFTs.

  6. When possible, all Refund Repayments, program 00004, should be processed through ISRP. See IRM 3.8.44.4(7), Exhibit 3.8.44-26, and Exhibit 3.8.44-27 for processing of Refund Repayments. If it is not possible to process Refund Repayments through ISRP, then route to Manual Processing.

Remittance Processing System (RPS) Control of Source Document

  1. Each campus MUST establish local procedures for controlling source documents and remittances throughout payment processing. However, the source documents must remain in searchable order until the completion of the correction and balancing processes.

  2. After the deposit is balanced and released to the depository, each campus coordinates local procedures for routing and distributing the source documents.

    1. Pull all unsigned returns and batched separately. Label transmittal "Unsigned Returns" edit return with "R" or "$" in the upper left corner using green pen and hand carry to Extraction.

  3. Destroy (classified)source document paper, excluding actual IRS returns, IRS forms and other correspondence or items that do not require pipeline or stop mail handling 5 business days after the deposit date. Some examples of items subject to destruction as classified waste include:

    • Paper vouchers and notices

      Note:

      If the payment voucher or notice has an address change notated, route to Entity after the payment has been processed.

    • Envelopes received with a check only

    • Simple correspondence that requires no further handling

    • Form 4868 or IRS forms that require no further handling or processing and do not bear a taxpayer signature

  4. Stage items within the Deposit function.

  5. Prior to disposal, source document paper must be reviewed/fanned through to ensure no mis-sorted items remain in the bundle.

Remittance Processing System (RPS) Pre-Batch/Clerical Procedures (General)

  1. The RPS Pre-Batch/Clerical function is responsible for finalizing the sort of remittances and related source documents and preparing/associating correct control documents for each type of deposit for the Payment Perfection function and the OE/KV function. Although the pre-batch functions may be physically separated, the procedure for preparing and controlling work must be the same for both Payment Perfection and OE/KV.

  2. Pre-Batch/Clerical is responsible for reviewing each sort to eliminate any mis-sort condition by spot checking the batch, and for entering information on Batch/Block Tracking System (BBTS).

  3. BBTS is a comprehensive integrated batch creation and tracking system used to generate unique block headers, including the 6-digit Remittance Processing System Identification (RPSID) number, and other identifying batch information.

  4. The Form 1332C, Block Selection Record (Block Header), contains batch information, such as RPSID, tax period, MFT, etc., that is entered by OE/KV operators for generation into individual tax records. Based on the type of source documents, enter information into BBTS by program code, RPSID, transaction code, MFT, tax period, and transaction received date. See Exhibit 3.8.44-19, Pre-Batch/Clerical Preparation of Form 1332C, Block and Section Record.

  5. After the batch information is entered into BBTS, BBTS assigns an "ABC" to the batch of work, generates and prints Form 9382, Pre-Batch Transmittal. See Exhibit 3.8.44-21 Pre-Batch/Clerical Preparation of Form 9382, Batch Transmittal, and Form 1332C, Block Selection Record (Block Header).

  6. The Form 9382, Batch Transmittal, is used by the OE/KV operators to sign out individual batches of work for original entry and key verification.

  7. Form 11355, Batch Header , is associated with each batch of work. The RPSID is pre-printed on the left margin of the Batch Separator in a 1-D barcode for recognition through the BancTec Scanner. The RPSID is also located in the upper right margin of the Batch Header. Also, associate the correct Batch Header, Forms 11356 with scannable vouchers and remittances, that by-pass OE/KV, and process directly on the BancTec Scanner..

  8. For each batch of like work, to control the source documents and remittances throughout payment processing, associate and place with the batch work prior to OE/KV, Form 11355, Batch Separator, pre-printed with the RPSID, and Form 1332C, and the Block Selection Record (Block Header).

Lockbox Mail

  1. On a daily basis, the Lockbox site(s) forwards a shipment of work to their respective campus, which includes unprocessable remittances. The sites receive these shipments in a tamper proof bag(s). The Deposit Clerical area performs the following steps.

    1. Verify the bag is sealed and not opened, sliced, torn or any manipulation that would question the integrity of the bag(s).

    2. Verify the "alpha numeric" digits printed on the bag(s) match the information recorded on the LDT.

    3. Initial the LDT in the "Received" column next to the "With-Remit Unprocessables/Rejects" .

       

      Note:

      It is not necessary to manually count the enclosed remittances contained in each labeled bundle. However, contact your Lockbox Field Coordinator (LFC) immediately if the bag is not sealed, alpha/numeric entries do not match, or there appears to be an obvious error in the volume of remittances. For example, header/cover sheets state the volume to be 20 remittances and the actual volume received is 5.

    4. Initial the Acknowledgement page in the correct fields, whether all is correct, or you had to notify the LFC of any discrepancy,

    5. Sign and date at the bottom of the Acknowledgement page.

    6. Fax or e-fax a copy of the signed Acknowledgement (Page 1) back to the Lockbox site daily, not later than (NLT) 2:00 p.m. local time. See IRM 11.3.1.14, Disclosure of Official Information; Introduction to Disclosure; Facsimile (FAX), Electronic Facsimile (E-FAX), and IRS Internal Enterprise Electronic Facsimile (EEFAX) Transmission of Tax Information., for more information.

      Note:

      If multiple areas receive and verify the work, for example: Extraction, Batching, and Cashiers, establish a system to ensure the faxing of all Acknowledgement pages to the Lockbox occurs daily..

  2. The Deposit area is to retain all pages (copy of Page 1 and all "detail pages") of the LDT for your files in chronological order. A managerial review must be performed monthly to ensure IRS acknowledged all to the Lockbox. This is a separate review from the monthly report you provide to your Lockbox coordinator. Keep a log sheet of the managerial review along with the transmittal retention copies and indicate name of reviewer, date and comments. Comments must include your findings of the managerial review. For example, 22 transmittals reviewed; 2 not signed, 1 missing date and time of faxed transmittal. If the reviewer does not find errors during the review, state, "No errors found" . Retention period for the LDT transmittals is 1 year.

  3. Review the following items when conducting a managerial review:

    • Transmittals faxed (employee initials, date and time faxed).

    • Transmittals signed.

    • Proper changes were made to any discovered discrepancies on the transmittal.

    • Lockbox field coordinator notified of any discrepancies.

Tax Return and Document Sorting

  1. Sort all remittances delivered to the Pre-Batch/Clerical function, from Extraction by type of tax and form number.

    1. MAINTAIN ALL SORTS from extraction, such as Individual Master File (IMF), Business Master File (BMF), Full Paid, Part Paid, Timely, Delinquent, etc.

    2. Extraction function delivers Perfect items directly to Pre-Batch/Clerical. Returns/documents containing:
      Legible Taxpayer Identification Number (SSN or EIN)
      One name control
      One Business Name for BMF
      Individual Name for IMF (a secondary name, such as a spouse, may be present. The surnames do not have to match.)
      One Remittance
      One MFT Code or Form
      One Tax Period or multiple (see exception below)
      Exception: Consider all notices, excluding Form 668 series (see Imperfect Items below), with multiple tax periods as perfect if all other criteria is met. Apply the payment to the oldest listed tax period.
      As applicable, one or more of the following: 3-digit plan number (Form 5330, Form 5500 series, Form 5558 only), report number (Form 8038-T, Form 8038-CP), DPC, secondary code/money amount, tertiary code/money amount.
      Consider checks and envelopes perfect when the "perfect" criteria are met.

      Note:

      For more information on Perfect Items see IRM 3.8.45.5.14, Perfect Returns or Documents..

    3. Imperfect items consist of source documents and remittances that do not meet the criteria of a "perfect" . They include incomplete items, illegible items, attached correspondence, split remittances, etc. These items must be researched and/or perfected by the Payment Perfection function prior to release to the Pre-Batch/Clerical function or deposit processing via InfoConnect.
      Installment Agreements, Levies and Garnishments.
      If there is an indication the payment is a levy or garnishment received with Form 668 series or written words such as automated collection system, ACS, levy or garnishment abbreviations or similar statements, process the payment as imperfect.
      If there is an indication the payment is for an installment agreement received with Form 433-D, Form 2159, Form 9465, or written words such as installment agreement, installment payment, payment plan, monthly payment or similar statement, process the payment as imperfect.

    4. Whenever possible, process Internal Revenue Code (IRC) 965 installment payments in RPS. IRC 965 payments usually have the following verbiage indicated on the paper check memo, or in the top margin of one of the tax forms listed below: IRC Section 965, Section 965, 965, 965h, 2017 965 Tax, or similar statement.
      Form 990-T
      Form 1040
      Form 1041
      Form 1065
      Form 1120
      Form 1120-L
      Form 1120-PC
      Form 1120-REIT
      Form 1120-RIC
      Form 1120-S

  2. To the extent possible, combine small groups of like source documents to create larger batches of work. To maximize batch volumes, different types of work, may be input under a single program number not designated for their specific use. For example, IMF and BMF payments of all types may be entered under program 45500. However, you must input the MFT code and other differing fields for each transaction as they change. Processing work in this manner is acceptable and preferred since the Integrated Submission and Remittance Processing (ISRP) program number is not output to other systems.

  3. Non-scannable vouchers must be sorted by MFT.

  4. Sort Splits and Multiples separately from all other types of work.

  5. Maintain the FULL PAID/Other Than Full Paid (OTFP) sorts for Form 1040, Form 1040A, Form 1040EZ and Form 1040PC throughout payment processing.

  6. Route Form 940V, Form 940VEZ, Form 941V, Form 943V, Form 945V, Form 1040ES, Form 1040V, Form 1041ES, Form 1041V, and Form 2290V preprinted, scannable payment vouchers directly to the BancTec Scanner for processing.

  7. Sort scannable vouchers and notices by scan line position. Place the remittances behind the vouchers or notices before delivery to the BancTec Scanner for processing.

Remittance Processing System (RPS) Pre-Batch/Clerical Clerk

  1. RPS Pre-Batch is prepares the work for input into the Remittance Processing System (RPS). The clerks perform the following activities:

    1. MAINTAIN ALL SORTS from extraction, such as IMF, BMF, Full Paid, OTFP, Timely, Delinquent, etc.

    2. Remove check stubs and staples from remittances, if still present, before forwarding to RPS function.

    3. Batch returns/documents by current, prior, fiscal year, and/or full paid, and/or part paid.

    4. Create batches of work for OE/KV input.

    5. Combine small groups of like source documents to create larger batches of work, by combining MFTs. When combining MFTs, keep like MFTs together in a batch. See Exhibit 3.8.44-20, MFT Codes Combined for Batching.

    6. Primary transaction code work can be combined under the correct program number, like MFTs. See Exhibit 3.8.44-46 Master File/Non-Master File Processing Form /Program Processing Table.

    7. Review batches of work to prevent mis-sorted returns or items that must be pulled from processing so it can be re-batched correctly.

    8. Input information into BBTS to generate and print batch transmittals and block headers.

    9. Use the RPSID to match the block headers and batch separators to complete the assembly of a batch of work.

    Note:

    Contact the deposit batch scheduler for more batch controls by category.

  2. Batch work by RPSID range according to their source of origination for timeliness tracking on Remittance Transaction Research (RTR) as follows:

Handling Special Remittances

  1. Mutilated remittances may not be accepted by financial institutions. See IRM 3.8.45, Manual Deposit Process, for specific procedures.

  2. Totally blank remittances must be forwarded to Payment Perfection. A partially complete remittance may be processed, whether signed or not, if the money amount can be determined. As needed, follow the steps listed below to determine the money amount to use for deposit processing.

  3. Use the numeric amount on the remittance for processing unless there is an amount annotated above the remittance date line. When present, use this money amount for processing. There may still be times when the money amount to use is questionable. Use the following table to determine the payment amount:

    If... Then...
    The numeric amount is legible and matches the written amount Process the payment using the numeric amount.
    The numeric amount is illegible Process the payment using the written amount. Annotate, in pencil, the amount used above the remittance date line.
    The numeric and written amounts do not match, and the numeric amount matches the source document Process the payment using the numeric amount.
    The numeric and written amounts do not match, and the written amount matches the source document Process the payment using the written amount from the remittance. Annotate, in pencil, the amount used above the remittance date line.
    The numeric and written amounts do not match, and neither one matches the source document Process the payment using the written amount from the remittance. Annotate, in pencil, the amount used above the remittance date line.
    Illegible or blank numeric and written amounts or a determination cannot be made Pull the source document and related remittance and route to Payment Perfection.

    Note:

    The annotated amount is a courtesy and for internal use only.

  4. Process a canceled check as follows:

    If... Then...
    A canceled check is received with "Endorsement Erased" Process through RPS.
    A canceled check is received without "Endorsement Erased" Route to Payment Perfection.
    Check is stamped "Account Closed" Forward to Payment Perfection for handling.
    Check is stamped "Secured" and no holes punched in the routing number area Process through RPS.
    Check is stamped "Secured " but has holes punched in routing number Forward to Payment Perfection for handling.

  5. Seized checks may be processed with proper endorsement. If in doubt or if the endorsement is missing, route to Payment Perfection.

  6. Do not process remittances of $100 million or greater through RPS. Give the remittance and related source material to your manager or designee, who is required to hand carry the item to Payment Perfection.

  7. Unacceptable Payment of Taxes consists of items the Federal Reserve Bank does not accept as payment. Hand carry any of the following items found in the Payment Perfection Unit to the Extraction Function to secure in a locked safe:

    • Actual Currency

    • MoneyGram Receipts

    Note:

    See IRM 3.8.45, Manual Deposit Process, for specific guidance.

  8. Forward a remittance found, with or without a source document, within the work area to the designated Deposit Unit personnel or pull-out cart.

Questionable Payments

  1. Campuses receive questionable remittances that resemble checks and money orders. In most cases, these remittances show the taxpayer and the "United States Bureau of Internal Revenue" as payees. The bogus remittances may include other identifying characteristics. See Exhibit 3.8.44-1, Bogus Check. DO NOT PROCESS ANY REMITTANCES CONTAINING THE FOLLOWING CHARACTERISTICS:

    • Unusual or no financial organization names

    • Monetary instruments printed on check quality paper or photocopying paper

    • Monetary instruments that reference Title 31 USC 371

    • No bank routing information (All American checks have a nine-digit number surrounded by symbols |:|:,e.g., |:123456789|:.)

    • A lien number

    • The words "Certified Bankers Check" , "Public Office Money Certificate" , or "Certified Documentary Draft" , "Lien Draft" , "Certified Money Certificate" , and "Comptroller Warrant"

     

  2. Sites receive the majority of the bogus remittances by certified or registered mail. The bogus remittance may include the following documents:

    1. A letter requesting a refund for overpayment or the taxpayer renouncing his/her U.S. citizenship.

    2. Several bogus checks received include a document titled, WARRANT PROCESSING PROCEDURES, . THIS IS NOT A LEGAL OR VALID DOCUMENT. DO NOT PROCESS A REMITTANCE BECAUSE IT IS ATTACHED TO THE WARRANT PROCESSING PROCEDURES. See IRM 3.8.45, Manual Deposit Process.

  3. Upon receipt of a suspicious remittance, process using the following procedures:

    1. Avoid removing evidence, such as lifting finger or palm prints. Handle the remittance, envelope, and any correspondence as little as possible. Place remittance in check saver.

    2. Immediately contact your manager and the Questionable Refund Coordinator in the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) at your Campus if there is any doubt about the legitimacy of a particular remittance.

    3. Do not contact the taxpayer, payer, banking institution or remitter indicated on the remittance to ascertain if the item is legitimate or not.

    4. Do not refer to or discuss the questionable remittance with anyone or any agency outside the IRS. This includes supplying photocopies of the item or a fax of the item to anyone other than an authorized IRS employee.

    5. In the event the Fraud Detection Center chooses not to pursue the matter, the manager coordinates with the Payment Perfection Unit to return the suspicious remittance to the taxpayer.

  4. A money order as defined in Treasury Regulation 301.6311–1 is an instrument issued by a United States post office, bank, express, telegraph, or domestic building and loan association, as defined by IRC 7701(a)(19), or by a similar association incorporated under the laws or a possession of the United States, or such other organization as the Commissioner may designate.

  5. Do not accept or process a check not drawn on banks and domestic building and loan associations incorporated in the United States and must contain magnetic encoding. IRS personnel cannot accept a check when it is a known fact that the bank or financial institution does not exist. (Banks closed for one reason or another and did not merge with another financial institutions.)

  6. A sight/site draft (a form of check negotiable through commercial banks) requires a service charge to process. This fails Treasury Regulation's 301.6311–1 only if there is no deduction for exchange or other charges.

  7. Non-legal negotiable remittances include: A Lien Draft, Certified Bankers Check, Public Office Money Certificate, Certified Documentary Draft, Comptroller Warrant and/or Certified Money Certificate. The Internal Revenue Service cannot accept these items.

  8. Remember to immediately contact the Questionable Refund Coordinator in the Fraud Detection Center in your Campus upon receipt of a bogus or questionable remittance.

Source Document General Information

  1. Pre-Batch/Clerical unit receives perfect and imperfect remittances and their related returns/documents on a regular basis.

  2. Perfect returns/documents are batched directly for RPS data entry. Considered an item "Perfect" when the transaction information includes a legible taxpayer name, TIN, one MFT code, at least one tax period (accept multiple tax periods on notices other than Form 668A and 668W. The oldest tax period listed is the one processed for the payment.), and one remittance. As applicable, one of the following is required: plan number (Form 5330, Return of Excise Taxes Related to Employee Benefit Plan, Form 5500 series, Annual Return of A One Participant (Owners and Their Spouses) Retirement Plan and Foreign Plan., and Form 5558, Application of Extension of Time to File Certain Employee Plan Returns, only), one report number (Form 8038-T, Arbitrage Rebate and Penalty in Lieu of Arbitrage Rebate, and Form 8038-CP, Return for Credit Payments to Issuers of Qualified Bonds), Designated Payment Code (DPC), secondary code/money amount, tertiary code/money amount. See IRM 3.8.45, Manual Deposit Process, for specific procedures.

  3. Scannable work (voucher with a scanline and associated remittance following, is considered perfect and is delivered to the BancTec Scanner area directly by the Extraction unit.)

  4. Imperfect source documents and remittances consist of items that do not meet the criteria of a "perfect" . They include incomplete items, illegible items, attached correspondence, or split or multiple payments. The Payment Perfection Unit researches and secures missing information and inputs the transaction via InfoConnect or routes it to Pre-Batch/Clerical for batching to RPS. If discovered in a batch, pull the item and route to the Payment Perfection Unit.

  5. If the remittance amount associated with a timely filed return is under or over the balance due amount, then process the payment as Other Than Full Paid (OTFP). If received with a delinquent return, regardless of whether the remittance matches the balance due line, process as OTFP.

  6. Prepare a payment posting voucher or equivalent whenever a source document is not available and the payment is not processable through RPS. A list of payment posting vouchers follows:

    • Form 3244, Payment Posting Voucher, see Exhibit 3.8.44-16, Form 3244, Payment Posting Voucher, Designated Payment Code (DPC) Present (TOP) and Not Present (Bottom)

    • Form 809, Posting Vouchers

    • IDRS Printout used in lieu of Form 3244, Payment Posting Voucher, see Exhibit 3.8.44-6, IDRS Printout and Envelope Used as a Source Document.

    • Correspondence, see Exhibit 3.8.44-8, Use of Taxpayer Correspondence as a Source Document.

    • Form 4907, TDA/Taxpayer Delinquent Account, see Exhibit 3.8.44-17, Form 4907, Designated Payment Code Present (TOP) and Not Present (Bottom).

    • Envelope, see Exhibit 3.8.44-6, IDRS Printout and Envelope Used as a Source Document, and Exhibit 3.8.44-15, Automated Collection System (ACS) Printout and Envelope Used as Source Document.

Scanner Preventive Maintenance

  1. Preventive maintenance (PM) is a key factor in the performance level of the Scanners. Perform this activity prior to the startup of each shift while the Scanner is in idle mode. It is vital that each step is followed and performed carefully to avoid mechanical malfunction.

BancTec Scanner Operation

  1. The BancTec Scanner processes three different types of work.

    1. Single remittances with single returns/documents (electronic vouchers)

    2. Splits and Multiples

    3. Scannable vouchers and notices

  2. The majority of remittances processed through the BancTec Scanner take the form of single remittances received with single source documents.

    1. The Pre-Batch/Clerical function uses a pre-printed batch header for each batch of up to 100 documents.

    2. RPS OE’s and KV’s the remittances and documents. Route only the remittances for processing through the BancTec Scanner..

    3. Jog each batch of remittances, along with a preprinted batch separator with a RPSID assigned by BBTS, to align the top left-hand corners. This decreases the number of jams in the BancTec Scanner.

    4. The remittances pass through the Scanner once.

    5. Ensure each bundle of remittances is passed through the staple detector equipment prior to loading them in the hopper. Failure to perform this duty could result in unnecessary and costly scanner downtime.

    6. Remove all paper clips, loose tape, and any object that could cause the machine to mis-align a document, a jam, or pocket incorrectly.

    7. Paper sticky notes are allowed on documents if the glued edge leads into the direction of the paper travel.

  3. RPS OEs and KVs Splits and Multiples. Run only the checks through the BancTec Scanners.

    1. Run the remittances for splits and multiples separately from other remittances to insure easier balancing, and re-matching of remittances with their corresponding documents in cases of an unbalanced condition.

    2. The remittances pass through the Scanner once.

  4. Route scannable vouchers and notices directly to the BancTec Scanner for processing.

    1. Extraction and Pre-Batch/Clerical sorts scannable vouchers and notices according to type and scanline position. Adjust the BancTec Scanner’s scanline position to match the work.

    2. Jog remittances/documents to align the lower-right-hand corners. This decreases the number of jams in the BancTec Scanner.

    3. Ensure each corresponding remittance is placed behind the corresponding voucher/notice.

    1. Note:

      An Integrated Submission and Remittance Processing (ISRP) system administrator needs to first log on to the BancTec PC to allow the batch scheduler to perform print duties.

Remittance Verification Operation

  1. Six processes take place in the Remittance Verification Operation:

    • Free/Missing Entry

    • Scanline Fix

    • Stub Amt Entry

    • Check Amt Entry

    • Balancing
