TIN Check

Tax ID Verification Service
It is important for you to make sure that you are reporting a correct Tax ID/Name combination to the IRS when submitting 1099 forms. To avoid IRS penalties, B-Notices, and tax withholdings, it is highly recommended that you verify the accuracy of recipient’s Tax ID.

The IRS sent over 65,000 proposed penalty notices in the last year alone. The IRS penalty for mismatched Tax ID/Name combination could be as high as $250.00 per mismatch. You can avoid this penalty by using our TIN Checking service. Using our TIN Checking service allows you to verify the accuracy of taxpayer TIN and name information prior to submitting information to the IRS. Internal Revenue Code 6724 provides that any penalties under Section 6721 may be waived if the filer shows the failure to file a correct TIN on an information return was due to reasonable cause and not willful neglect. Filers may prove due diligence and receive a waiver from proposed penalties if they prove the TIN and name combination they submitted matched IRS records.

How it works

Our TIN Checking service works seamlessly with our e-filing system. Just choose the option for TIN Checking when submitting your forms. If you have selected the TIN Checking service, our system will automatically send out the TIN Checking request before e-filing your forms. If the TIN Check shows any discrepancies, we inform you so that you can verify the information with your recipient and correct it. We resend your information to verify. If it is a match, we e-file your forms.
