The administrative TFRP case file transmitted to Appeals is not an ex parte communication since it sets forth the boundaries of the dispute between the taxpayer and the Internal Revenue Service and forms the basis for Appeals to assume jurisdiction. The TFRP case file should include all information supporting the original recommendation , as well as any work papers reflecting the manner in which payments have been applied, specifically any payments directed by the taxpayer, court order, etc.
Upon receipt of the TFRP package, CPM will conduct a technical review of the case file, and if it is complete and acceptable, will forward it to Appeals.

For cases where one or more responsible party agrees to the assessment and at least one other party is protesting the assessment, submit all files together to CPM for cases that are being protested.
Since the ASED is not protected for the cases that are not being protested, CPM will submit the non-protested cases for assessment and will forward the protested cases to Appeals. Each territory should establish a system for reviewing decisions made by Appeals to determine whether quality issues exist that need to be addressed.
The territory should arrange periodic meetings with Appeals to discuss trends, workloads and other issues of interest. CPM may also establish a process to follow-up on overage Appeals cases. Appeals may request additional information after receipt of a TFRP protest. An Appeals hearing officer may determine new information submitted by a potentially responsible party requires investigative analysis.

If Appeals does not sustain the original proposed assessment, a new Form must be printed to reflect the correct TFRP amount based on the decision by Appeals. The revenue officer will generate and print a Form for each responsible person.
Annotate "Bankruptcy" in red on top of the form and provide basic bankruptcy information for cases where the responsible party or the employer has filed bankruptcy. Include Form if a waiver to extend the statutory period to assess the TFRP was secured from the taxpayer.
