Hi again, I see you have some additional questions beyond your original. I will seek to touch on them, to the extent possible. Any new questions, however, should likely be placed in a new transaction post of your choice, so as to maintain the integrity of this thread (and keep me out of trouble). Thanks for understanding.
With regard to your follow up:
Ok---good answer. Thank you.
Let's try to pin this down. Under FOIA I received a document called AO Offer---my request was for a summary/ history/ Final Status of the Offer. OK.
It give the date received---which is not my concern. However in regards XXXXX XXXXX the offer was rejected it gives this- Actually, that doesn't tell us much, as these are internal codes, not those used by us. However, if your matter was a AOIC matter we can likely figure it out.
|Update AO Offer ||Final Disposition |
|Update Final Disposition || |
Select "3 - Rejection Sustained"
Input the mail date of the rejection letter with appeal rights
Input the mail date of the Appeals rejection letter
Input the RCP amount (from Form 5402). If "0" or no amount is given on the 5402, use the IMFOLI/BMFOLI "total assessed balance" from IDRS)
Select "Submit" and return to AO Offer screen
AO Disposition Date 11/10/2009 So, this would be the mail date of the rejection letter, be it the initial rejection or if it was appealed, the Appeals rejection.
AO Closed Date 11/13/2009 This should be the date that they closed out, as in, nothing left to do unless you appeal.
As such, I'd cound 11/10/2009 as the rejection date, and count 30 days from there, unless I secured a copy of my rejection letter that said otherwise.
So--- which is the EXACT date that the 30 day period begins? The date AFTER the date on the rejection letter. (The appeal period: "Treasury Regulation(NNN) NNN-NNNN1(f)(5) further provides that a taxpayer may administratively appeal the rejection of an offer to the IRS Office of Appeals if, within the 30-day period commencing the day after the date on the letter of rejection, the taxpayer requests such an administrative review in the manner provided by the Secretary."http://www.irs.gov/irm/part8/irm_08-023-001.html)
And to be specific-the date that the Statute will stop tolling and start running again. I do not do that math, I leave that to my accountant. However, determine the DATE on your rejection letter (and perhaps a copy of that should have been requested via FOIA, since that is your trigger date) or if an AOIC system case, the disposition date should be where they put in the rejection letter date, so I'd likely use 11/10/2009. So, let's say your rejection date on your letter was 11/10/2009 (a Tuesday) , then day 1 is 11/11/2009 and day 30 is 12/10/2009 (a Thursday) (unless it falls on a holiday, then it pushes to the next day). The next day, is not tolled/ the tolling stops, so that would be 12/11/2009 (a Friday). I hope this helps! Let me know if you need follow up before or after RATING me.
