Use the TARS in this sub-topic for Food Stamp applications under any category to deny an application (TA 05) or person in an application. Use TA 62 with TAR 90 to change the category or case ID number.

For denials (TA 05), the following TARs generate a central denial notice (Form 360C) with the related reason, unless Item 39 is coded to suppress the notice. If the central notice is suppressed, the Family Community Resource Center must complete and send the Denied Food Stamps Section of the manual Form 360 series (Form 360N).

Some of the TARs are used to notify the unit of the reason why a person was excluded for benefits. If a TAR applies to person-level only, the TAR Box shows (Person Only). If the TAR applies to both person-level and case-level, the TAR Box shows (Person & Case).

NOTE: For denial reason messages in Spanish, see Table 2 at the end of this sub-topic.
