One of the most common errors that employers make on their tax forms is entering their employee’s TIN incorrectly. It is a small error with big consequences. When this number is entered incorrectly, the IRS is unable to identify the business or individual that you are referring to.
Why Is TIN Matching Important?
Entering the wrong tax identification number on your business’ tax forms is like entering the wrong social security number on your personal tax return.
Without this identifying number, the IRS is unable to identify you, to them you basically don’t exist. Remember, if you are filing wage forms, you must also be mindful when entering your employee’s tax identification information.
TIN Matching is a service that helps businesses prevent this simple error. In the short run, you avoid the annoyance at having to provide corrections to the SSA and in the long run you will avoid any penalties or Social Security “No-Match” Letters as a result of incorrect filing.
