It’s saying my ein numbers are wrong but they are correct, what do I do?

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.

  • F1099R-502-02: Form 1099-R, Payer Federal Id Number must match data in the e-File database
  • F2439-502-01: Form 2439, Notice to Shareholder of Undistributed Long-Term Capital Gains,

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