3.17.63  Redesign Revenue Accounting Control System (Cont. 1) 
Deposit Discrepancies  (03-31-2014)
State Income Tax Levy Program (SITLP)

  1. The SITLP Coordinator in each W&I campus has overall responsibility for the coordination between the state and the campus. Procedures are sent to each SITLP coordinator and the NHQ Collection. A list of the SITLP Coordinators is available on the Servicewide Electronic Research Program website at: http://serp.enterprise.irs.gov/databases/who-where.dr/sitlp_coord.htm.

  2. States join SITLP and become operational after a memorandum of understanding (MOU) is signed, and successful test files are processed. The participating states are:

    Alabama Michigan
    *Alaska Minnesota
    Arkansas Missouri
    Arizona Nebraska
    California New Jersey
    Colorado New Mexico
    Connecticut **New York
    Delaware **North Carolina
    District of Columbia Ohio
    Georgia Oklahoma
    Idaho Oregon
    Illinois Pennsylvania
    Indiana Rhode Island
    Iowa South Carolina
    Kentucky Utah
    Louisiana Vermont
    Maine Virginia
    **Massachusetts West Virginia
    Maryland Wisconsin


    *Alaska participates in the Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend Levy Program (AKPFD). This is a similar matching program, but the levy attaches to the state's Permanent Fund and Dividend rather than a state income tax refund. AKPFD levy files are converted into a SITLP format for processing through TDA 55/56 in Fresno.


    **These states are participating in SITLP; however they do not use EFTPS to send in their SITLP levy payments.

  3. All non-EFTPS states must send their payments (checks) to associate with the electronic files to keep the integrity of the state receipts and validation process. Payments by check are only received for non-EFTPS states.


    By June 2014, all current non-EFTPS state agencies will be converted to EFTPS for their SITLP payments.  (03-31-2014)
Federal Agency Tax Payment System (Ogden Only)

Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) (Ogden Only)

  1. The EFTPS provides a daily automated journal file for posting transactions to RRACS. The Accounting technician contacts the Submission Processing RRACS Headquarters unit and the CFO RRACS OS:CFO:FM:A:S office to receive further instructions for journals that did not post to RRACS.

  2. If the EFTPS batch journal does not post to RRACS, the accounting technician must prepare a manual journal.

    3. Deposit reclassification journal.

    4. Tape Edit Processor (TEP) journal.

  4. The following programs transmit through EFTPS:

    1. Wire Transfer/FEDWIRE.

  8. The deposit ticket does not identify user fees and non-revenue items. Non-revenue deposit items are initially classified into Account 4765, but later reclassified.

  9. Federal Payment Levy Program (FPLP) deposit tickets received through IPAC, rather than CIR, are journalized to different accounts:

    1. After the money is received through IPAC, prepare a manual journal to debit Account 2910 and credit Account 4765.

    2. The EFTPS journal 114 debits Account 4765 and credits Account 2910, and debits the Account 21XX tax classes and credits the appropriate EFTPS suspense accounts.

    3. RRACS is programmed to recognize the FPLP deposit ticket journal record by the record code 5. Normal EFTPS deposit tickets contain record code 1.  (03-31-2014)

  4. The EFTPS Reclassification Summary Report is divided into two parts:

    1. Part 1 is the tax class reclassification containing the net change in tax classes identified by a comparison between the tax type codes and the deposit ticket and by changes in tax types made by error correction or auto correction.

    2. Part 2 is the MF reclassification based on a comparison between the tax type codes and the MF in the batch header including MF changes created by auto correction and error correction.

Statement of Differences (SOD)

  1. The Statement of Differences (SOD) is an electronic Form 6652 that is available through CARS from Fiscal Service. The Form 6652 lists all deposits and disbursements discrepancies from each campus by agency location code. It is used to identify, reconcile, and resolve differences between IRS deposits and collections as reported on the SF224 and Fiscal Service records.

  2. The SOD is available on CARS after Fiscal Service completes monthly balancing. When this information is available, ECC-MTB runs the DT/DV Match. Under the Deposit-in-Transit System, the depositing agency performs the detail audit. This is consistent from month to month following the report month. Prior to month-end processing, accounting balances the Form 6652 with Reports 035B and 035C.

  3. Within three workdays after the 18th of each month, the deposit and disbursement Reconciliation Reports are due to NHQ. The technician sends an email confirmation to HQ and files a copy of the email and each campus reconciliation report. The email confirmation document confirms the time and date the reconciliation report was sent and received by the HQ analyst. Each campus must report all deposit and disbursement discrepancies on the reconciliation report provided by NHQ. These reports provide the detail records that make up the difference reported by Fiscal Service with an explanation of the action taken to resolve each issue. The report must be faxed to the NHQ analyst at (202) 803-9691. The comprehensive history sheets must be available when requested from NHQ.

  4. The technician completes the information required on the reconciliation report using the following information:

    1. Audit Mo/Yr - From the DT/DV.

    2. DT/DV # - Voucher number from the DT/DV.

    3. Date Presented (Box 2 date) - OTCnet (formerly TGAnet) voucher date.

    4. Confirmed Date on Ticket/CIR - Confirmed date on OTCnet (or CIR) deposit ticket. Created date on an OTCnet (or CIR) debit voucher. Created date on an adjustment DT/DV.

    5. Date Received in RRACS Unit - Received stamp date on DT/DV.

    6. Treasury Amount - DT/DV/6652.

    7. IRS Amount - DT/DV/6652.

  5. The Reconciliation Report requires signatures of three campus representatives:

    1. Preparer.

    2. Reviewer.

    3. Certifying Officer (Accounting Operations Manager).

    Hard copy signatures should be kept on file at the campus. A typed version of the reconciliation report including the preparer, reviewer, and the certifying officer signatures should be emailed to CFO HQ analyst.  (03-31-2014)
Reconciliation of Deposit Differences

  1. The Form 6652 and RACS 017 (DT/DV Support List) are used to reconcile deposits/debit vouchers on the Statement of Differences Reconciliation Report. The technician is responsible for:

    1. Downloading from CARS, Form 6652 Information.

    2. Downloading from RRACS, the DT/DV Support list.

    Form 6652 shows the difference between the campus totals and the totals submitted through Fiscal Service. The RACS 017 report shows all deposits/debit vouchers journalized into the RRACS system (IRS) for the accounting period. The monthly DT/DV Support List identifies the items that support the Fiscal Service total.

  2. During the matching process, DT/DV Match compares the individual records stored in RRACS during routine processing with the deposit information processed by Fiscal Service monthly. Four reports are generated when ECC-MTB runs the DT/DV Match which are:

    1. DT/DV Match Treasury Records 035A.

    2. DT/DV Unmatched Treasury Records 035B.

    3. DT/DV Unmatched RACS Records 035C.

    4. DT/DV Match Error Report 035D.

  3. The Records and Report items listed in the table, in paragraph (2) above, should be identified and researched during the CIR process. See also IRM, Automated Deposit Records Confirmation. The technician maintains comprehensive history sheets noting actions taken, date of action, name of contact, and descriptive information regarding the action taken.


    Error items do not appear on the unmatched reports.

  4. The RACS 035B (Unmatched Treasury Records) and RACS 035C (Unmatched RACS Records) reflect the deposit tickets and debit vouchers that, for various reasons, did not match during the month. The RACS 035B & 035C items must be verified against each other. Verify each item by matching the Treasury number and dollar amount. Check the deposit ticket from the RACS 035C under journal research to ensure they have been confirmed. If not, a manual confirmation journal must be done (211 windows). If there are offsetting debits and credits with the same Treasury number and money amounts, post 908 and 909 journals. The DBA posts the deposit tickets/debit vouchers under the 908 and 909 window (Reconcile); this deletes the items from the RACS 035 B & 035 C. The manager must review, initial, and date the listings before the DBA is able to post the 908 and 909 journals. Maintain a log for audit purpose on 908 and 909 journals.


    Under message: Reference the original journal number.

  5. Deposit tickets dated the last day of the month may not be reported on CIR by the depository until the following month. These items will appear on the Statement of Differences and are generally an easily identified timing problem.

  6. Statement of Differences will be received monthly until differences are reconciled.

  7. All differences must be corrected. If RRACS input is correct, contact the financial institution or Fiscal Service for correction. If RRACS input is incorrect, the correction must be made on RRACS.

  8. Adjustment DT/DVs' prepared date is the date of the original deposit.

  9. The financial institution should be using the prepared date (and not the current date) when transmitting adjustment DT/DVs via OTCnet/CIR. In situations where the depository erroneously used the current date, contact Fiscal Service for corrective action. Fiscal Service will correct the date, as well as Doc-ID, and ALC, if necessary. The Fiscal Service contact fax number is (202) 874-8887.

  10. If items have aged over 90 days (audit month), fax a copy of the corresponding DT/DV and supporting documentation to the NHQ analyst.

  11. Deposits with aging confirm/create dates are at risk for adverse 90 day aging scorecard ratings and should be researched and resolved.

  12. The accounting technician/DBA uses the RACS 017 DTDV report (IRS) and the GOALS II Support Listing report (Treasury) to create the Statement of Differences Reconciliation Report. The reviewer (DBA or higher level personnel) should review the reports for accuracy and supporting backup documentation before signing or submitting the SOD to Headquarters office. The reconciliation report is verified by comparing it to the 035B and 035C reports prior to submitting to headquarters.  (03-31-2014)
