Data Entry Instructions

  1. Following are instructions for entry operators to use in transcribing data from tax returns and other documents.

  2. Instructions for the following topics take precedence over the general instructions outlined in IRM 3.24.37, ISRP System, General Instructions, unless otherwise instructed:

    • General

    • International Returns

    • Required Sections

    • Amounts

    • Editing

    • Interpretive Transcription

    • Entity Determination

    • Correcting the Type of Entity

    • Check Digit/Name Control

    • Name Line

    • Address Line

    • Prior Year Returns

    • Age/Blind Indicator Boxes

    • Direct Deposit

    • Prior Year Forms with Different Layouts

    • Error Messages

    • Correcting Sections

    • Key Verification

General
  1. THE ENTRY OPERATOR (EOP) IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ENTERING ALL TRANSCRIBABLE SCHEDULES AND FORMS, EVEN IF THE CORRECT SECTION NUMBER IS NOT PRESENT OR EDITED.

    Note:

    If Code & Edit (C&E) has indicated that if any of the attached forms and schedules are non-transcribable (stapled, folded, banded together, etc.), it is not necessary to look through the items to determine if something needs to be transcribed. Ensure that any item behind these are looked at for transcription.

  2. Sections that have no data present should not be entered unless specifically instructed. Overlay the Section Number with the next section that contains data and continue.

  3. For any prompt, NEVER enter two consecutive spaces.

  4. All entity information, such as Social Security Number (SSN), spouse's SSN (if present), address, name, should be transcribed from the document. Information should not be taken from a W-2 or any other accompanying documentation.

  5. If information is not transcribed correctly, it could negatively impact one or more of the Balanced Measures.

    Example:

    An error in a taxpayer's address may result in an incorrect notice being generated which impacts Notice Error Rate, and, if a refund, it may also impact Refund Error Rate.

  6. A domestic return is generally a tax return with an address within the 50 states, Washington DC, and Army Post Office (APO)/Diplomatic Post Office (DPO)/Fleet Post Office (FPO) addresses.

    Note:

    A tax return with Form 2555 or Form 2555-EZ attached is treated as an international return, regardless of the address in the entity. Enter Action Code 651 (610 for Austin Submission Processing Campus (AUSPC), only if the return is misbatched) in Section 01 and end the document. See IRM 3.24.3.1.10.2 for additional information on International Returns.

  7. For an address within the 50 states, Washington DC, APO/DPO/FPO addresses, and US Possessions (AUSPC only), follow instructions for Additional Information Line (AIL), street address, city/state, and ZIP Code entries in IRM 3.24.37.6.15 through 3.24.37.6.17, ISRP System, General Instructions. AUSPC only, for an address outside of the 50 states, but excluding US Possessions, follow instructions for AIL, street address, and city/state entries in IRM 3.24.37.6.18, ISRP System, General Instructions.

International Returns
  1. An international return is generally a tax return with an address outside of the 50 states. The most common other international returns contain at least one of the following:

    • US Possession address (Puerto Rico, Guam, etc.). For a complete list of US Possessions, see IRM 3.24.37.6.18, ISRP System, General Instructions.

      Note:

      APO/DPO/FPO addresses are not international returns unless one of the following are attached.

    • Form 2555 or Form 2555-EZ, Foreign Earned Income (Attachment Sequence Number 34/34A/35).

      Note:

      For AUSPC only, if a Form 2555 or Form 2555–EZ is attached to any form other than the Form 1040 in an international block, treat the document as a misblocked document.

    • Form W-2 with foreign income (if noticed).

    • Form 8833, Treaty-Based Return Position Disclosure Under Section 6114 or 7701(b).

    • Notation of Dual Status.

    • Primary taxpayer is a Non-Resident Alien (NRA).

    • Form 4563, Exclusion of Income for Bona Fide Residents of American Samoa, attached (Attachment Sequence Number 68).

    • Form 8689, Allocation of Individual Income Tax to the U.S. Virgin Islands, attached (Attachment Sequence Number 85).

    • Form 1042-S, Foreign Person's U.S. Source Income Subject to Withholding.

  2. If a tax return contains any information that indicates it is an international return, enter the document as Short Entity with all MUST ENTER fields and Action Code 651 (610 for AUSPC, only if the return is misblocked) in Section 01 and end the document.

    Exception:

    With Remittance returns, the Remittance section will automatically display after the Action Code is entered. After the Remittance amount is entered, the system will automatically end the document.

    Note:

    If additional information in Section 01 or other sections have been entered prior to identifying the document as an International return, there is no need to delete any additional information (including type of entity) or sections that have been entered. Enter Action Code 651 (610 for AUSPC only if the return is misblocked) in Section 01 (and the Remittance amount if it is a Remittance return), press <F6>, then press <F4>, and end the document.

  3. (AUSPC Only) For Virgin Islands (VI) Cover Over returns processed in AUSPC, follow the instructions below:

    • For entity instructions, see IRM 3.24.37.6.18.1.1 and IRM 3.24.37.6.18.1.2.

    • For the RPC prompt, always enter "B" and "L" . Also enter RPC"K" , only if edited.

    • Do not enter any other information for the document. End the document after the entry of RPC prompt.

Required Sections
  1. Original Entry — Section 01 is required and must be input. After input, the document can be ended with a "D" when the following occurs:

    • When a "G" Computer Condition Code or an Action Code in the "600" series is present. For these conditions, end the document as instructed in the specific instructions. If the return is a Remittance document, the system will automatically take you to the Remittance field for input.

    • When data for succeeding sections are not present.

    • Form 1040X — Section 01 is the only required section if the amended return is a non-remittance. Sections 01 and 05 are required if the amended return contains a Remittance amount.

Amounts
  1. All money fields will be dollars only unless otherwise specified.

    1. The dollar fields will be prompted with a dollar sign ($) to indicate dollars only.

    2. If the prompt does not include the dollar sign ($), the entry is dollars and cents.

  2. Entry of Cents

    1. If a dollar amount is present and no cents are present, enter two zeros.

    2. If a dollar amount is present and cents are lined through, enter two zeros.

    3. If there is only a single numeric digit in the cents column, enter the digit followed by one zero (0).

      Note:

      If a cent sign (¢) immediately follows the single digit, enter one zero (0) and the single digit.

  3. Zero Amounts — Press <Enter> only for all 0 (zero) or blank amounts unless otherwise directed in the procedures.

  4. Negative amounts — If the taxpayer indicates a loss (i.e., negative sign, brackets, loss) in the near vicinity of the line, accept taxpayer's indication, when possible.

  5. Edited Amounts — enter the amount exactly as edited, unless otherwise instructed.

  6. If there are two or more money amounts shown on a single line or if the amount is illegible or cannot be determined or not in U.S. currency, press <F12> to fill the field with question marks (?).

  7. Money amounts that are "Xed" should not be transcribed. Circled money amounts will be transcribed, unless otherwise instructed.

    Note:

    See IRM 3.24.37.6.3 through 3.24.37.6.5, ISRP System, General Instructions, for additional editing procedures.

  8. Certain total fields will be automatically generated after an entry of "0" (zero) and an <F7> override when the taxpayer did not complete the return or left the lines blank. These fields are:

    1. Total Income — Section 03, Forms 1040 and 1040A

    2. Adjusted Gross Income — Section 03, Form 1040

Refund/Amount You Owe
  1. All returns can have a Refund Amount and/or an Amount You Owe field entry.

  2. If both fields Refund Amount and Amount You Owe contain entries, enter what is present on both lines.

  3. The Amount You Owe field is always a MUST ENTER field. If no data is present, enter a "0" (zero) and press <Enter>.

  4. If the "refund" amount line is $100 million or more, enter Action Code 341.

Editing
  1. An edited arrow is used to direct attention to a misplaced item that must be entered (examples are: a misplaced SSN, city-state line or tax data). Code & Edit may edit a:

    1. Single ended arrow to indicate an entry should be moved from its original position to a different position. Enter the amount in the position the arrow is directing only.

    2. Double ended arrow or a "T" arrow to edit an entry to multiple lines. Enter the amount in its original position and in the position the arrow is directing.

  2. Taxpayer corrected entries (arrowed, changed, or "Xed" ), although not in red, will be honored. This includes ALL sections that have been "Xed" by the taxpayer.

    Exception:

    Any taxpayer editing to the RTN or DAN will not be honored. Follow instructions for altered Direct Deposit section in IRM 3.24.3.1.10.14.

    Exception:

    Taxpayer editing to the Third Party Information Yes/No boxes will not be honored unless the taxpayer has initialed the change.

  3. Some areas in Section 01 are coded by departments other than Code & Edit. These codes may appear to be stamped, in a different ink than Code & Edit, or computer generated in gray (noted with CIS, IVO, etc. in the upper left). Honor these indications of codes and/or dates.

    Exception:

    For photocopied returns, only honor codes edited and/or underlined in red.

  4. Money amounts that are "Xed" should not be transcribed. Circled amounts will be transcribed, unless otherwise instructed.

    Note:

    See IRM 3.24.37.6.3 through IRM 3.24.37.6.5, ISRP System, General Instructions, for additional editing procedures.

  5. If there are different sections that could be entered on a double sided form, each side is treated separately and the editing only applies to that side.

    Example:

    For 2008 and prior, Form 1040 Schedule A (Section 07) and Schedule B (Section 08) are on the front and back of each other when it is an IRS published form. If Schedule B is "Xed" and Schedule A is not "Xed" out, Schedule A should be entered.

    Example:

    See instructions for Schedule SE (Sections 17/18) as page 1 and page 2 may be separate sections.

  6. Code & Edit will "X" the front of a form (usually page 1) when the section should not be transcribed. The back of the form (usually page 2) should not be considered available and should not be transcribed if the front is "Xed" .

    Note:

    If a single page of a multiple page form or schedule is attached and is not "Xed" out, enter the section.

  7. If there are multiple like forms or schedules for one specific section:

    1. And there are more forms that can be entered than available sections, enter the first form or schedule that is available.

      Example:

      If the return contains 5 Schedules C (Sections 09/10/11) and none have been "Xed" by Code & Edit, enter the first three Schedule Cs that contain transcribable data.

      Example:

      If the return contains 3 Schedules E (Section 13) with transcribable data and only the first one is "Xed" out, enter the second Schedule E. Always enter the first available page one and the first available page two.

  8. Prior Year forms will have transcription lines edited to reflect current year line numbers.

    1. If any field has had its line number deleted (lined-through, "Xed" out, etc.) and has not been edited to reflect a new line number, do not enter information for that field.

    2. If any field has not had its line number deleted (lined-through, "Xed " out, etc.) and has not been edited to reflect a new line number, enter the information in that field if present.

Interpretive Transcription
  1. If specific instructions are not located in the IRM, EOPs will interpret and decide the following items without having these items completely edited.

    1. Substitute standard abbreviations.

    2. Omit or include titles and other data from the entity area.

    3. Omit or include cents in the tax data.

    4. Honor "ditto" (″) marks and the word "same" when used to:
      Duplicate last names,
      Repeat money amounts on Form 8962, Page 1 (Section 73).

    5. Omit "N/A" if obviously used as indication of "Not Applicable"

Entity Determination
  1. Use the instructions in IRM 3.24.3.1.10.7.1 through IRM 3.24.3.1.10.7.5 to determine what type of entity is required.

    Note:

    If the primary SSN is missing, illegible, incomplete, more than 9 digits, multiple SSNs on the same line/box, or is a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) that begins with a red edited "9" , always enter as Long Entity.

    Note:

All fields will appear blank and the prompt "TYPE OF ENTITY" will be present. KV behaves like Original Entry and will access the E-EIF if the document requires access. Otherwise, if the Type of Entity is known, the KV EOP will key S, I, P or L. See IRM 3.24.3.1.10.7.1 through IRM 3.24.3.1.10.7.5 for specific instructions for each Type of Entity.
