Taxpayer Identification Matching
There are two tools available to taxpayers to assist them in ensuring payee Identification numbers are correct before they file 1099s. One of which is the Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) matching program. The other is Social Security Number Verification Service (SSNVS). Tax2efile offers the TIN matching to all our 1099/1098 customers.
TIN Matching Program
The TIN matching program is a web-based tool that can be used through the IRS e-service or by filing your 1099s through Tax2efile. The program was established for payers of reportable payments to be subject to backup withholding provisions of section 3406 of the internal revenue code. The program allows a participant to check the TIN furnished by the payee against the name/TIN combination in the IRS database prior to filing.
The Social Security Number Verification Service is a service offered by the SSA’s Business Services Online. It allows verifying names and Social Security numbers of employees against the SSA records before preparing the filing of Forms W-2.
