Overview

  1. This IRM lists procedures for Exempt Organization (EO) employees using Employee Plans/Exempt Organizations Determination System (EDS).

  2. EDS is the determination letter system of record for controlling cases from their establishment to closing. Most applications are also controlled and processed through the Tax Exempt Determination System (TEDS); however, TEDS isn’t programmed yet to process all types of determination letter requests, letter generation, or case closure.

    Note:

    Some of this IRM doesn’t apply to cases controlled and processed through TEDS. See IRM 7.22.4, Tax Exempt Determination System (TEDS) User Manual, for more information on TEDS.

  3. Cases controlled in EDS are referred to as "EDS cases" throughout this manual. Don’t take any actions in EDS to a case controlled by TEDS until it is controlled in EDS, as it will cause a block on any TEDS data transmissions on that case.

    Exception:

    You can generate closing letters in EDS for a TEDS controlled case without causing a system block.

  4. EDS is divided into five subsystems:

    1. Data Transcription System (DTS) - use to enter application information on the EDS database but not for TEDS cases. Use to generate transmittal sheets.

    2. Inventory Control System (ICS) -use to track cases from opening to closing: case assignment, status update, closing applications, resend EDS unpostables, and research capabilities.

    3. Letter Generation System (LGS) - use to generate and reprint closing letters in EDS.

    4. Management Information System (MIS) - use to generate user fee, unpostable, and employee roster reports.

    5. File Maintenance System (FMS) - use to control and update files for operating EDS. These control files include Exempt Organizations Business Master File (MF) and system parameter files for DTS and LGS. Discuss required updates to DTS and LGS with your manager.

  5. EDS is a menu-driven system. You can choose functions from a list of available options. When you select a valid option, it displays an input screen or another submenu. When you complete an option, the system displays a higher level menu to select another option or to exit EDS.

  6. Each EO employee’s actions are recorded in EDS (including TEDS’ actions that transmit to EDS) is assigned a unique five digit ID number (T number/specialist number). Each ID is assigned a function code. The function code determines the employee duties in EDS (e.g., managerial, clerical, or assigned case work).

    Example:

    Cases can only be assigned to a specialist function code. Cases can only be approved by a manager or secretary/clerk function code.

  7. Submit an Online 5081 to request system access or access changes. The TE/GE Business Systems Planning, TE/GE Operational Program Support (TOPS) office is responsible for adding and changing employee functions in EDS.

  8. Submit a Help Ticket if you need help in EDS to the Enterprise Service Desk by:

    • Calling 1-866-7HELP4U (1-866-743-5748).

    • Visiting the OS GetServices website.

    Note:

    To expedite your ticket, tell the help desk that this is a EDS, TE/GE application issue.

  9. The system transmits application information as follows:

    1. EDS transmits case opening and closing information daily to Employee Plans/Exempt Organizations Applications Control System (EACS).

    2. EDS also transmits information to a Business Objects database (BOBJ), which EO uses to gather, access, analyze, share, and correlate case data.

    3. EACS subsequently transmits the information to EO Business Master File (EO/BMF).

  10. Refer to Document 6379, Information Systems Codes FY 2015 Quick Reference for EO Employees, for current EDS system and input codes and definitions.

  3. Paragraphs print out in a letter based on the paragraph number, how it is set up in EDS, and, sometimes, the order you enter them in the Create/Update Letter screen.

    Common Paragraph number(s) Description and print placement
    1-99
    3000-5998

    • Entered by individual user

    • Print in the order you enter the paragraph numbers in the Create/Update Letter screen not in numerical order – including 21000-26999 paragraphs (read left to right then next row - "Z" pattern)

    • Print on a separate page after signature paragraph

    21000-26999
    • Local paragraphs

    • Print in the order you enter the paragraph numbers in the Create/Update Letter screen not in numerical order – including 9000-9999 paragraphs (read left to right then next row - "Z" pattern)

    • Print on separate page after signature paragraph

  4. To input required or selective paragraph in a letter, enter the paragraph number in the Para column on the Create/Update Letter screen. If the paragraph requires a variable, enter the appropriate variable on the line next to the paragraph number in the Variable column. Variables may be from 1 to 20 characters and will print exactly as entered (e.g., capital and lower case letters, punctuation, spaces, etc.).

  5. To create a customized paragraph:

    1. Enter paragraph number 9000 or 9001(and additional 9000-series numbers for additional paragraphs) in the Create/Update Letter screen Para column.
