Do You Know What All These Error Codes Mean?


Hey Folks

Wendy again from Fein Search and Real Search. I want to cover some pretty basic stuff today that I get asked all the time. Did you know that the IRS has specific error codes for all the mismatching that happens when you file?

Let’s take a quick look at those error codes. I think you’ll be surprised how specific they are.

IRS Code 1 TIN is missing or not a 9 digit number.
IRS Code 2 TIN is not in the IRS records.
IRS Code 3 Name/TIN combination does not match IRS records.
IRS Code 4 Invalid TIN Matching request.
IRS Code 5 Duplicate TIN Matching request.
IRS Code 6 Name/TIN combination matched IRS records as a SSN.
IRS Code 7 Name/TIN combination matched IRS records as an EIN.
IRS Code 8 Name/TIN combination matched IRS records as an EIN and SSN.
IRS Code 0 Name/TIN combination matches IRS records.
IRS Code 111 IRS did not return a result.
Unable to Submit - Name has been submitted for multiple TINs. The same recipient name was submitted for multiple, different TINs. Verify the data and resubmit.
Unable to Submit - TIN has been submitted for multiple names. The same recipient TIN was submitted for multiple, different names. Verify the data and resubmit
12 different error codes for just trying to match a TIN! And the worst part is that they give you very little help in actually figure out what your next steps should be.
