How TIN Match works with Track1099
Register your Payer at IRS e-services.
The IRS requires an individual at the company to take responsibility by entering their information.
In Track1099, after entering your Recipients, but before scheduling e-file, click on the Payer name -> Download -> TIN Match for a properly formatted bulk TIN Matching text file. Please see our TIN Matching Video.
Once you receive your IRS pin in the mail and finish registration, go to the IRS TIN Match site, login and then follow their instructions for uploading a bulk TIN Match file.
The IRS will return a file to you that shows which Name and SSN combinations are incorrect. They will NOT tell you the correct SSN nor if it's a name or SSN issue. One of them does not match what the IRS has on file.
After using our online W-9 service to get the correct Name and SSN, login to Track1099, make the update directly in the Recipient's form or delete the existing Company and upload a new CSV file with the correct Recipient Names and SSNs.
