Computer Software for Form 5307 Users Available

WASHINGTON - Computer software to generate certain forms for employee plan applications is now available to tax practitioners from the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS software will produce From 5307 , "Application for Determination for Adopters of Master or Prototype, Regional Prototype or Volume Submitter Plans" (revision dated February, 1990) and a special version of Form 8717, "User Fee for Employee Plan Determination Letter Request" (all revisions, but only for use with Form 5307).

Practitioners who use Form 5307 to request determination letters for plans that have been pre-approved by the IRS may get a copy of the software.

Originals of computer generated applications may be used in place of IRS printed application forms. Practitioners must otherwise use page one of the IRS form because of its Optical Character Recognition capabilities. Page one of the IRS form is printed in special ink used for OCR equipment.

The IRS said that the computer software should help practitioners who have a number of applications to submit because these forms need not be ordered from the IRS. Instructions will be given soon for those practitioners who want to design their own computer programs to generate customized forms, the IRS said.

The software is for use with an IBM compatible computer having at least 312K of RAM available. Practitioners may obtain a free copy of the software by sending a 5-1/4 formatted double- density disk and a return postage paid container to the IRS key district office for employee plan matters in the region in which the practitioner is located. Practitioners should also enclose typed samples produced by their printer to ensure compatibility with the OCR equipment used by the key district offices.

To order software, send disk and postage paid container to:
