I put the wrong ein number in

If your tax return has rejected due to an incorrect EIN then you need to go back into the TurboTax program and find the form with the incorrect number.  Check your form with the number you have entered into TurboTax and once corrected you can submit your return again. 

Below are some common EIN reject codes and you can follow the links for specific directions on how to correct this issue.

These rejections occur when Employer Identification Number (EIN) or employer/payer name doesn't match IRS records..

Got rejected? Don't take it personally. We're here to help you figure it out and be done for good.

Have you already filed your return? Was it rejected?
