TINS Bankruptcy File (BKRUPD)

The TINS Bankruptcy File (BKRUPD) screen contains information about a debtor with a TINS hold who has filed for bankruptcy.

BKRUPD can be used either for:

BKRUPD calculates the check digit for a TIN in both Line 1 and in the BANKRUPTCY TIN field.

Note: When the hold record is set up under an SSN or ITIN, the assigned 7 TIN is required to add, change or delete a bankruptcy record. Please see the Data Entry Matrix. Only the R (Recall) action allows for entry of either the 2 TIN or 7 TIN.

Access

BKRUPD can only be accessed through Line 1 entry.

Steps:

  1. Enter BKRUPD on Line 1, press Enter and enter the 10- or 11-digit TIN in the BANKRUPTCY TIN field.

    OR

    Enter BKRUPD.(10- or 11-digit TIN)

    If the TIN is… Then enter… Notes
    EIN-based,
    • 1 + nine-digit EIN or
    • 1 + nine-digit EIN + check digit
    TINS calculates the check digit when a 10-digit TIN is entered.
    Comptroller-assigned, 11-digit TIN that begins with 3  
    A 7 TIN for payees who provide an SSN or ITIN,
    • 11-digit TIN that begins with 7

      OR

    • 2 + nine-digit SSN or ITIN or
    • 2 + nine-digit SSN or ITIN + check digit

    Note: When entering a 2-based TIN that is on file, the inquiry results display the assigned 11-digit 7 TIN.

    Press Enter.

    Note: If an invalid 11-digit TIN is entered, TINS displays the message Check Digit is Incorrect for TIN/Hold Number.

  2. The field defaults to R (Recall). Press Enter.
  3. Use the direction message keys to navigate through the screen.
If a bankruptcy record is… Then TINS displays…
On file for the TIN, The bankruptcy information with the message Record Successfully Recalled.
