NEW E-SERVICE REVOLUTIONIZES TRANSCRIPT DELIVERY=20

WASHINGTON =E2=80=94 Tax practitioners can now request transcripts of the=
ir
client=E2=80=99s tax records and receive them within minutes instead of d=
ays or
weeks using a new online tool delivered through the IRS Business Systems
Modernization program. The Transcript Delivery System (TDS) is the latest
in a series of e-services that are revolutionizing how tax practitioners
work with the Internal Revenue Service on behalf of their clients.

Authorized tax practitioners use the new electronic tool to order tax
account and tax return transcripts and other tax information for their
business and individual clients. The documents are returned to the
practitioner=E2=80=99s computer through a secure online connection within=
minutes.
Paper requests for the same information can take days or weeks to
complete.

=E2=80=9CThis important new technology will help tax practitioners improv=
e their
services to taxpayers and is part of our continuing efforts to modernize
the IRS,=E2=80=9D said IRS Commissioner Mark W. Everson.=E2=80=9D

Tax practitioners use transcripts when representing their clients before
the IRS. Transcripts are printouts of a taxpayer=E2=80=99s account that s=
how
actions taken by the IRS or the taxpayer and any tax, penalties or
interest assessed. Tax returns can also be printed as transcripts to show
most of the numbers reported on the return and those from accompanying
schedules or forms. In many cases, transcripts are used instead of making
copies of tax returns.

TDS is one of three premium e-services the IRS has developed for
practitioners who have successfully e-filed 100 or more individual tax
returns and registered to use e-services. The other premium e-services,
Disclosure Authorization and Electronic Account Resolution, were released
in July.

=E2=80=9CTDS is the greatest thing since sliced bread,=E2=80=9D says enro=
lled agent Larry
=E2=80=9CDenny=E2=80=9D Denman, a North Las Vegas tax practitioner who us=
es TDS and other
IRS e-services. =E2=80=9CI requested eight years of transcripts for one c=
lient and
printed them out in no time. And the quality is better than anything I ge=
t
through the mail or by fax.=E2=80=9D

The Transcript Delivery System is the final product in a line of
e-services developed through the Business Systems Modernization program i=
n
partnership with the PRIME Alliance group of contractors led by Computer
Sciences Corporation.

Some combination of the original IRS notice, John's
reposting it, and the esteemed moderator's software, is
creating funning-looking pseudo-characters, such as "= 20"
(for a space at the end of a line, I believe), and "= E2 =
80 = 94", which may be a bullet. (With spaces added, in case
some people already have software which retranslates it.)

[Moderator: It comes to me that way.]

I don't know how to remedy the way it goes into the group.
Some pass through, without the characters, others do not.
When I cut and paste, everything appears to be in order and
the marks are not there. If there are any, and I notice
them, I retype the entire message in order to eliminate any
confusions!!!=:)

Then perhaps John can compose in plain text only?
