IRS Seeks to Return $153 Million in Undelivered Checks to Taxpayers; Recommends e-file, Direct Deposit to Avoid Future Delivery Problems

WASHINGTON — In an annual reminder to taxpayers, the Internal Revenue Service announced today that it is looking to return $153.3 million in undelivered tax refund checks. In all, 99,123 taxpayers are due refund checks this year that could not be delivered because of mailing address errors.

Undelivered refund checks average $1,547 this year.

Taxpayers who believe their refund check may have been returned to the IRS as undelivered should use the “Where’s My Refund?” tool on IRS.gov. The tool will provide the status of their refund and, in some cases, instructions on how to resolve delivery problems.

Taxpayers checking on a refund over the phone will receive instructions on how to update their addresses. Taxpayers can access a telephone version of “Where’s My Refund?” by calling 1-800-829-1954.

While only a small percentage of checks mailed out by the IRS are returned as undelivered, taxpayers can put an end to lost, stolen or undelivered checks by choosing direct deposit when they file either paper or electronic returns. Last year, more than 78.4 million taxpayers chose to receive their refund through direct deposit. Taxpayers can receive refunds directly into their bank account, split a tax refund into two or three financial accounts or even buy a savings bond.

The IRS also recommends that taxpayers file their tax returns electronically, because e-file eliminates the risk of lost paper returns. E-file also reduces errors on tax returns and speeds up refunds. Nearly 8 out of 10 taxpayers chose e-file last year. E-file combined with direct deposit is the best option for taxpayers to avoid refund problems; it’s easy, fast and safe.

The public should be aware that the IRS does not contact taxpayers by e-mail to alert them of pending refunds and does not ask for personal or financial information through email.  Such messages are common phishing scams.  The agency urges taxpayers receiving such messages not to release any personal information, reply, open any attachments or click on any links to avoid malicious code that can infect their computers.  The best way for an individual to verify if she or he has a pending refund is going directly to IRS.gov and using the “Where’s My Refund?” tool.

Excise Summary Terminal Activity Reporting System (ExSTARS)

Excise Summary Terminal Activity Reporting System (ExSTARS)

What is ExSTARS?

ExSTARS is a fuel reporting system developed with the cooperation of the IRS, Department of Transportation, States, and Motor Fuel Industry, which details the movement of any liquid product into or out of an IRS approved terminal.

The ExSTARS system requires each terminal operator and bulk carrier to file monthly reports. Reports are filed for each approved terminal with a Terminal Control Number. The Terminal Control Number (TCN)/Terminal Locations Directory contains terminal control numbers and locations for IRS approved terminals.

Who is required to use ExSTARS?

Terminal Operators and Bulk Fuel Carriers (pipeline, vessel and barge operators) are required to file monthly information returns – Fuel Transaction Reports. All receipts and disbursements of liquid products to and from an approved terminal are reportable. If reportable transactions equal or exceed 25 during a monthly reporting period, electronic reporting through ExSTARS is required. Each receipt of liquid product and each disbursement of liquid product constitutes a separate transaction even if it is a single movement of fuel.

Form 720-TO Terminal Operator Report. Form 720-TO is required to be filed by a terminal operator to report monthly receipts and disbursements of all liquid products to and from all approved terminals.

Form 720-CS Carrier Summary Report. Form 720-CS is required to be filed by bulk transport carriers (barges, ships, and pipelines) who receive or deliver products in or out of storage at a terminal, or any other location designated by a facility control number (FCN).  Pipelines only file for receipt or delivery transactions at an approved terminal.

Facility Control Number System (FCN)

A facility control number designates a storage location within the motor fuel, or renewable fuel production or the bulk transfer / terminal system. Facilities include refineries (RCN), approved terminals (TCN), biodiesel production facilities (BCN), or ethanol production facilities (ECN). Currently, only TCNs are required to file returns.  Information in the RCN directory is required for reporting purposes for carriers. The BCN and ECN numbers will be released at a later date. Information regarding the use of FCNs was made public by an announcement in the Federal Register on April 12, 2010.

When to file?

The report is due the last day of the month following the reporting period. If any due date for filing a return falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the report maybe filed on the next business day.

How to file?

• Apply to participate in electronic filing using letter(s) of application. Fill-in letters of application are available for Terminal Operator/Carriers and Transmitters.

• Electronic Filing (Electronic Data Interchange) over the Internet

• A test cycle will be used to test the exchange of files between the electronic filer and the IRS prior to submitting production files. These tests will ensure the successful submission of qualifying electronic Form720-TO, and Form 720-CS information returns.

• Paper submission of Form 720-TO and/or 720-CS

Why is filing required?

•  Implementation of Treasury Regulation 48.4101-2 requiring “taxable fuel registrants” to provide information reports.

• Match Information Returns against Excise Tax Returns.

The new electronic format will be available for testing beginning in early December 2010.

Please see a  summary of these changes for further details.

Nine Tips on the 10 Percent Tax on Tanning Services

Starting July 1, 2010, many businesses offering tanning services must collect a 10 percent excise tax on the tanning services they provide. This excise tax requirement is part of the Affordable Care Act that was enacted in March 2010. Indoor Tanning tax has to be reported for the 1st Quarter of 2011 is due by May 2nd, 2011.

Use IRS Form 720, Quarterly Federal Excise Tax Return to report and pay the indoor tanning tax due by May 2, 2011. Act fast and report it electronically at www.TaxExcise.com

Here are nine tips on the tanning excise tax that providers must collect.

1. Businesses providing ultraviolet tanning services must collect the 10 percent excise tax at the time the customer pays for the tanning services.

2. If the customer fails to pay the excise tax, the tanning service provider is liable for the tax.

3. The tax does not apply to phototherapy services performed by a licensed medical professional on his or her premises.

4. The tax does not apply to spray-on tanning services.

5. If a payment covers charges for tanning services along with other goods and services, the other goods and services may be excluded from the tax if they are separately stated and the charges do not exceed the fair market value for those other goods and services.

6. If the customer purchases bundled services and the charges are not separately stated, the tax applies to the portion of the payment that can be reasonably attributed to the indoor tanning services.

7. The tax does not have to be paid on membership fees for certain qualified physical fitness facilities that offer indoor tanning services as an incidental service to members without a separately identifiable fee.

8. Tanning service providers must report and pay the excise tax on a quarterly basis.

9. To pay the tax, businesses must file IRS Form 720, Quarterly Federal Excise Tax Return using an Employer Identification Number assigned by the IRS. Businesses that don’t already have one can apply for an EIN online at IRS.gov.
