I'm trying to submit my 1099r and I can't locate the Federal ID Number on the form. Would it go by a different name like "payer's TIN"?

On the details page of the 1099r it lists the payer's TIN as Taxpayer Identification Number.

The box on Form 1099R that is labeled TIN is the payers Federal ID Number.

On the 1099R form it has Payer's TIN.  I have used that as the Federal ID number and it was rejected.  What should  Used?

The Payer's TIN is the Federal EIN.  It is 9 digits and in the format of 12-3456789.  You only enter the 9 digits and the program will supply the 'dash'.  If what you entered is correct and it is being rejected, the delete the Form 1099-R and re-enter manually.

I did enter the 1099-R manually and still got the rejection. So now what am I supposed to enter?

If you entered the payers EIN on the 1099-R and it rejects as an invalid EIN then contact the payer to see of they entered the wrong number.

I thank you very much for the help; however, they only had their name and address in that box. I did get the info from google.

If your 1090-R was missing the EIN then contact the issuer for a replacement 1099-R.     A 1099-R is not valid without a EIN.   They are required by law to supply a valid 1099-R.
