How can i verify a EIN number

Go back to the data entry for the tax form that carries the EIN and edit the form.


As an example, for a  W-2, go here:

  • Down the far left side, click Federal.
  • Across the top, click Wages & Income.
  • Under Your Income, click Edit/Add to the right of W-2's.
  • To the right of the individual W-2, Click Edit.
  • Now you can review or correct the data that you entered.
