IRS Error Code:
Filer's EIN and Name Control in the Return Header must match data in the e-File database, unless "Name Change" or "Name or Address Change" checkbox is checked, if applicable.
What does it mean:
The Business Name you have entered in your 2290 Form does not match the EIN listed in the IRS database.
There is a possibility that you have entered the wrong EIN, so make sure to check your EIN, Business Name, and Name control and see if what you have entered is correct. If you cannot find any errors in the information you have provided, you can contact the IRS at (800) 829-4933 and verify your EIN, Business Name, and Name control. International users will need to call (267) 941-1099.
