point of information for all!
Wanting to check some of the documents and instructions mentioned
in this forum and others I went ot the local IRS office here in
florida. One of the documents that I picked up, and I suggest
that everyone get a copy, was the instructions for 'claim for
refund and request for abatement' instructions form 843.
Paragrapf two (2) collum one (1) states in part; " You are not
required to provide the information requested on a form that is
subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act ubless the form displays
a valid OMB control number."
Now, I'm quite aware that the IRS plays around with words which
trap Citizens into a false sense of security. My Question then is,
even the 1545-0074 number that appears on a form 1040 is in fact
not the proper number assigned by the OMB to the form 1040, does it
still, as they imply, fall into the catagory of " a valid OMB control
number. Therefore, as I see it, all of the OMD's are 'valid control
numbers' so does this mean that even though the wrong number appears
on form 1040, under the conditions that I mentioned, is it still
a 'Valid number' as defined by the IRS.
