Service Level Agreements (SLAs)

  1. The Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) reached agreements with the Operating Division that outline the procedures and responsibilities for the processing of TAS casework when either the statutory or delegated authority to complete case transactions rests outside of TAS. These agreements are known as Service Lever Agreements (SLAs).IRM 3.12.22.1.1, Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) SLA, contains specifics about SLAs for employees that perform activities using this IRM.

Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) SLA

  1. The TAS SLA:

    1. Contains basic requirements for handling TAS-referred cases.

    2. Include specific actions to take on TAS referrals and specific time frames for completing those actions.

  2. Find the SLA is at http://tas.web.irs.gov/ and procedures in IRM 13, Taxpayer Advocate Service.

Operations Assistance Requests (OARs)
  1. The Taxpayer Advocate Service uses the Operation Assistance Request (OAR) process to refer cases when TAS lacks either the statutory or delegated authority to resolve a taxpayer's problem. The TAS uses Form 12412, Operations Assistance Request (OAR), to initiate the OAR process.

  2. For cases requiring an OAR:

    1. TAS will complete Form 12412 and forwards the case to the Operating Division Liaison via Form 3210, Document Transmittal.

    2. The liaison will acknowledge receipt of the OAR via Form 3210 secure messaging e-mail, fax, or by phone within the time frames established in the SLA. The liaison reviews the case, assigns it to the appropriate area, and monitors the case through its conclusion.

  3. Make every effort to expedite completion of OAR cases. Time frames for the assigned area to complete the case are on Form 12412. Send any correspondence sent to the taxpayer while TAS has an open control also to the TAS employee assigned the case.

    1. EXPEDITE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT PROCESSING - When TAS has requested an expedite processing, the liaisons will acknowledge receipt within one workday of OAR receipt.

    2. NON-EXPEDITE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT PROCESSING - When TAS does not require expedite processing, t the liaisons will acknowledge receipt within three workdays of OAR receipt.

    3. If needing additional research or documentation on an OAR, the employee assigned the OAR contacts the assigned TAS employee within one workday of the determination, and within one workday of OAR receipt in the case of expedite processing OARs, to obtain information and to re-negotiate the requested completion date. If the TAS employee does not provide the information within the time frame provided, follow procedures in the SLA.

    4. Assigned employee; if you cannot resolve a taxpayer's case cannot by the requested time frame or by a negotiated extension date, immediately notify your manager.

    5. Assigned employee/manager: Work with the TAS contact listed on Form 12412 to arrive at agreed upon follow-up time frames based on the case’s facts and circumstances.

    6. Assigned/manager: Discuss the findings and final disposition recommendation(s) of the case with the appropriate TAS contact. The TAS contact communicates the final case decision to the taxpayer. However you may also inform the taxpayer of the decision.

    7. Assigned employee/manager: If you and the TAS contact cannot agree upon the case resolution elevate any disagreement to your manager. The TAS employee elevates this disagreement to their manager who discusses it with the appropriate Operating Division manager.

    8. Assigned employee: Upon case resolution complete section VI of Form 12412 and return it to the TAS Case Advocate assigned the case. Return the Form 12412 within three workdays from the date that all actions are complete and transactions posted.

  4. For more information, please refer to: IRM 13, Taxpayer Advocate Service and http://tas.web.irs.gov/

General Correction Procedures for Form 5330

  1. Place records into Error Resolution or Rejects inventories for correction.

  2. Once you access a record and it displays an error on the screen, resolve the error by:

    1. Fully correcting the record.

    2. Placing the record in suspense until we receive information.

    3. Rejecting the record from pipeline processing.

  3. Corrections include correcting errors in editing, transcription or taxpayer errors.

    Note:

    Any instruction referring you to "attachments" for correction implies that you also refer to the coinciding line on Form 5330 and likewise to the coinciding schedule entry as Form 5330 schedules flow data to the form and vice versa.

  4. Before making corrections to the error screen displays, verify the DLN of the display matches the DLN of the document.

  5. Common procedures are in IRM 3.12.38, BMF General Instructions. Use IRM 3.11.22, Employee Plan Excise Tax Return, in conjunction with IRM 3.12.22 for reference and corrective actions.

Action Code 001
  1. Action Code 001 computer generates, when the BOB resolution function adds a missing document by only inputting the TIN and the name control for the missing document.

    • Enter all necessary data.

    • GTSEC all sections.

Clear Fields "C" and "000"
  1. Use the letter "C" as a clear field for the Error Codes (consistency errors) when the invalid condition does not require a change or correction to the record as displayed. The display includes a clear field, labeled "CL" to indicate the possible need of a clear field.

  2. Clear Error Codes needing a clear field by either correcting the condition or entering a "C" to indicate no correction is needed.

  3. Use Clear Field "C" clearing the action code after completing corrections.

  4. Use "000" as a clear field when deleting action codes. Only use it for erroneous action codes when determining there is no reason to suspend the record.

    Note:

    "000" cannot be used in Reject correction.

  5. Programming erases all "C" clear fields for error codes when a record is suspended with Command Code SSPND.

  6. Programming erases all "C" clear fields for error codes and action codes for the new days error inventory and workable suspense inventory.

    Note:

    Unfinished records from the previous day will not contain the "C" clear fields assigned to a record that was not completed.

Action Code Error

  1. All records assigned an incorrect action code displays a Priority 1 error. The correction procedures are:

    1. If the action code is valid (except 001), place it in the Reject inventory.

    2. If the action code is invalid or is 001, place it in the Error inventory.

Section Errors

  1. There are two types of section errors: ISRP and TERMINUS errors.

ISRP Errors
  1. An ISRP error is an error detected by the ISRP system.

  2. The display for the ISRP error includes the code identifying the type of ISRP error:

    1. "1" - Split screen transmission, Key Verifier attempted to change Check Digit, 4 or more digits of a TIN, or the original entry operator entered required section as missing.

    2. "3" - Invalid section ending point.

    3. "4" - Invalid field length.

    4. "Questionable Section" - The ISRP operator input the same section more than once or entered out of sequence. The computer program drops all duplicate sections and displays the first one encountered.

  3. When displayed, ISRP errors display all input fields of the section in error except for the remittance in Section 01. Transcribed data is present. Computer generated data is not present.

ISRP Error Correction Procedures
  1. Check all fields of the section and verify that fields are entered as coded.

    1. If no correction needed, or when the section is correct, drop to the bottom of the screen and transmit.

    2. If you need to delete the section, enter Command Code DLSEC with the section number.

Terminus Error
  1. A Terminus Error occurs when a section with variable length input fields contains an erroneous sized field.

  2. When displayed, a Terminus Error shows all input fields of the terminus section.

    1. Transcribed data is present.

    2. Computer generated fields or Remittance Field for Section 01 will not be present.

Terminus Error Correction Procedures
  1. Examine all fields present for the section and make the necessary correction(s).

  2. If you need to delete the section, use Command Code DLSEC.

  3. If no corrections needed, drop cursor to the bottom of the screen and transmit.

Field Errors

  1. Any data not meeting the requirements for that field shows as a field error. Some reasons for this type of error are:

    1. Non-alphabetical character in an alpha field.

    2. Blank space in a numeric field.

    3. Blank in the first position of an alpha field.

    4. Non-numeric character in a numeric field.

    5. A required field is blank.

Field Error Correction Procedures

General

  1. Since January 2001, Forms 5330 post to the Business Master File (BMF) along with all associated transactions, including payments.

  2. Use a Taxpayer Notice Code (TPNC) whenever a math error or missing item causes a change to the taxpayer's total tax. The TPNC causes a math error explanation paragraph to be printed on a notice to the taxpayer that is generated when the return posts to the master file.

    1. Enter the TPNC on the screen. Up to three two-digit codes are allowed.

    2. The instruction for correction of particular fields includes instructions to enter the correct TPNC.

  3. Code and Edit edits CCC "C" on substitute for returns. This bypasses the calculation checks for most fields. If the Form 5330 or attachments indicate that this is a substitute for return, enter CCC "C" in Field 01CCC. Do not issue correspondence on substitute for returns.

  4. All money fields are dollars and cents. If the taxpayer rounds, follow his/her intent.

Due Dates for Various Sections on Form 5330

  1. There are various due dates that apply to the Form 5330. The due date depends on which Part (IR Code Section) of the form is completed.
