To edit a Payer, click on the small pencil icon next to the Payer's name in your All Payers table.


Q: How do I change a 1099 Payer when the name and EIN are greyed out?

Fixing Affordable Care Act (ACA) 1094 or 1095-C Payers or Recipients


Q: Where do I find out why I have Rejected or Accepted with Errors next to my Recipients?

A: Please look in your email. We sent you a message that specifically tells you the reason for the errors. See the bottom of that email for details.


Q: What does "Accepted with Errors - 1095-C TIN Validation Failed" mean and how do I correct it?

A: The Recipient's 1095-C first/last name and Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) combination does not match what the IRS has on file. It may match what you have in your records, but does not match what the IRS has. Middle initials do not matter.

To fix, enter the correct info and click Save. We will automatically resend to the IRS. If you believe you have correct info and cannot fix, we suggest you have a current W-4 or W-9 on file in the case the IRS has an issue.
