What are the common reasons for Form 7004 extension rejection?

Request for Extensions is granted automatically up to 7 months if the application for extension is filed before the return's due date and properly filled out. Over the several years we have learned that the IRS rejects the application for extension for these most common scenarios:
1. Your TIN (EIN/SSN) does not match the IRS Records.
2. Your Business Name does not match the IRS records.
3. For businesses whose accounting year is not the calendar year, the tax year ending you are reporting does not match with IRS records.
4. The extension e-filed by a business can be rejected if it has already been filed with IRS.
