It is not necessary or a required entry for the Federal identification number on Forms 1099-INT. You can proceed to enter the interest and move to the next entry.

i received a letter from the IRS saying that they gave me interest with my refund. no 1099 just said that i must report it as income and gave me their tax ID. how does it get reported in turbotax???
IRS interest 1099 form probably only says 1099 (rev. 9-07) on it. The IRS EIN # on it is 38-1798424.
Enter interest from the IRS like a 1099Int and put the amount in box 1.
Enter a 1099-Int under
Wages & Income
