SS vs TIN on Form 1099-R


       I have filed my 2022 taxes on April 5, 2023 with a withdrawal setup to pay the IRS for April 13, 2023, but the IRS keeps rejecting my taxes. The error states that the Social Security number cannot be the same as Tax Identification Number (TIN).  I was born as a USA citizen and do  not have a TIN.


Form 1099-R requires an entry for RECIPIENT’S TIN and it auto populates with my social security number.  The for does not have a block for SS.

Maybe it thinks your SSN (Recipient's TIN) is the same as the Payer TIN?  Try deleting the 1099R and reenter it  manually.  Then be sure to go all the way to the end of the 1099R section. 


If your efile is rejecting  your payment info did not go through so you are now late.  Maybe you better pay the tax due asap directly online at the IRS and then take out your bank info for the payment and say you will pay by check.  If you can't get it to efile you will have to print and mail it.

How to mail a return from the Online version

Be sure to attach copies of your W2s and any 1099s that have withholding on them. You have to mail federal and state in separate envelopes because they go to different places. Get a tracking number from the post office when you mail them for proof of filing.

Your TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number) is your Social Security Number.

The Form 1099-R requires that you enter the Payer's Federal ID number which is a nine digit number in the format of xx-xxxxxxx

Delete the Form 1099-R that was entered and then enter the 1099-R manually.


To enter, edit or delete a form 1099-R -

Click on Federal Taxes (Personal using Home and Business)

Scroll down to Retirement Plans and Social Security

In your case the your Social Security number is your TIN.  


quite honestly your post is confusing. not sure what you are trying to  do. when you originally set up the distribution with the tustee at that time you would have entered the amount to be withheld. It is too late to do it later after the distribution has been made when filing your return. 


you can set up a direct debit n your 2022 return but that is not done through thre1099-R


any withholding would be on the  2022 1099-R you got but if the distribution was in 2023 it's reported on your 2023 tax return 

on the 1099-R Payor info screen you must enter the payers TIN which is xx-xxxxxxx and my screen says Federal ID number not TIN. 



we can't see your return or the 1099-R. support may or may not be available depending on theversion of Turbotax you are uing.
