E-file reject F1099R-502-02: The Payer Federal Id Number entered does not match what the IRS has in its records
This rejection can occur if you mistyped or omitted the Payer Name and/or Federal ID Number (FEIN) when you entered your 1099-R.
Note: If the Federal ID Number on your 1099-R is blank due to a foreign payer, you'll need to mail your return because the FEIN is required for e-filing. If a domestic payer omitted their FEIN, please contact them for the 9-digit number so you can e-file.
