Transaction code

Transaction Code

  • Transaction Codes are a three digit code that the IRS places into your IMF records which have a specific meaning.

  • With only three digits the IRS can only have 999 definations to go with those codes.

  • Well the IRS never have enough money or codes so they took one of these Transaction Codes 971 and used it as a way to get another 999 codes

  • When a TC 971 is used they also include a CD Code or “Action Code” which has a specific meaning.

Typical Decoding 425

  • Did you find the TC 425 in the 6209 Manual?

  • Section 8-18 Page 128 of 613 in 6209 Manual

  • What does it say?

  • The purpose of this Transaction Code 425 is to overwrite and delete from the record the TC 424, which allows for a second examination while appearing to document one examination. Another sequence of erroneous postings to my IMF is the TC 424 and TC 425 entries.


What is a 424

What is a 424?

  • It is a Examination Request Indicator.

  • It Deletes Records in the DIF file.

  • It can be generated for IMF when IRP Under-Reported case is referred to exam


How a sfr is created

How a SFR is Created

  • An SFR is created by issuing an AM424 with Push Code 036 to establish the skeletal substitute for return in the IMF.

  • The AIMS system then queries IMF for matching data and if found, sends other details back to AIMS to create a complete AIMS record. The AM424 updates the IMF with TC424 and the complete AIMS record returned, updates the IMF with TC420and TC 150.

  • Proof that a TC424 was issued is the presence of the TC425, which in the IMF, is caused by the issuance of an AM424D.

  • The AM424D will then delete the TC424 from the IMF leaving the trace TC425 in the IMF. Thus, the TC 150 is created, TC420 is recorded, and a TC425 is proof of the AM424 issuance being deleted. This matches completely with my IMF, which has the following entries:
