The box for PAYER'S federal identification number is now called PAYER'S TIN.

Taxpayer Identification Number = federal identification number.

The Federal Identification number is located under the Payer's name and address on the left side of the Form 1099-R.

@john.boulanger17 - If the payers EIN is missing from the 1099-R then contact the payer to get a corrected 1099-R.

This has changed for filing the 2019 Tax Return. The Payer's TIN is now listed in Box 7 on the 1099-R.

This is an official IRS Form 1099-R.  Please refer to the form.  Box 7 is specifically for entry of a Distribution Code.

You personally do not have a Federal Employer Identification Number unless you applied for an EIN from the IRS.

You have a Taxpayer Identification Number which is your Social Security number or if you are not eligible for a SSN then it is the ITIN issued to you by the IRS.
