The IRS displays one
of the following "Match Indicator" codes next to the TIN and name
0 = TIN and Name
combination matches IRS records.
1 = TIN was missing or TIN not 9-digit numeric .
2 = TIN entered is not currently issued.
3 = TIN and Name combination does not match IRS records.
4 = Invalid TIN Matching request.
5 = Duplicate TIN Matching request.
6 = TIN and Name combination matches IRS SSN records.
7 = TIN and Name combination matches IRS EIN records.
8 = TIN and Name combination matches IRS SSN and EIN records.
Using the TIN Matching system allows you to verify the accuracy of
taxpayer TIN and name information prior to submitting information to
IRS. Internal Revenue Code 6724 provides any penalties under Section
6721 may be waived if the filer shows the failure to file a correct
TIN on an information return was due to reasonable cause and not
willful neglect. Filers may prove due diligence and receive a waiver
from proposed penalties if they prove the TIN and name combination
they submitted matched IRS records. Providing a copy of the Print
Screen of your Interactive Results will be considered proof of due
