Utah TAX ID number error when E-filing

I am once again attempting to e-file my taxes.  I continue to get the error indicating I need to fix the UTAH ID number from box 15 on the W2.  I have tried all of the suggesitons to fix it and nothing fixes the error.  Why is this such a problem?

Utah TAX ID number error when E-filing

EINs are limited to 9 digits.  Try using the EIN from the Federal portion of the W-2.  If that does not work then use the Troubleshooting help below.

 

Since you have tried several times to clear the error close your TurboTax,

Then use the Back selection to get back to the form page with box 15 on it.
