Use Track1099's TIN Matching service
Reduce the chance of IRS fines for incorrect SSNs and use our TIN Matching service for $0.39.
We offer you the option during e-file checkout.
The form types that are allowed by the IRS to use TIN Matching are 1099-NEC, MISC, B, DIV, INT, K, OID and PATR.
We compare name, TIN type and TIN against the IRS database. All three must match to get a "pass", else you'll get a "fail".
The IRS will not allow you to find a correct SSN using this service. It is only pass/fail.
We suggest you use full first and last names, though "Tim" will work in place of "Timothy".
