Why was my return rejected for a business name/EIN mismatch?
The IRS rejected your return because your business name/EIN didn't match what the IRS already has on file. You'll want to verify that the EIN in your account is correct and that your business name is listed the same as how you registered it with the IRS. We recommend contacting the IRS EIN Hotline at 1-800-829-4933to confirm your information.
Note: If you have a new EIN, the IRS approximately 10 business days or 2 weeks for the number to become active within the e-filing system. If you obtained your EIN less than two weeks ago, this is likely the reason for the rejection.
