If your file(s) contain errors 1-3, these relate to the IRS’s TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number) validation.  In other words, the SSNs and names contained in the file don’t match IRS records for one or more employees or their covered individual(s) (if you had a self-funded plan).  It could be that an individual changed names or got married and didn’t update it with the SSA (Social Security Administration), or the name could be misspelled in Enterprise or the uploaded 1094-C file. 

TempWorks has verified that the name/SSN data contained in the 1094-C file matches the information inputted by your business into Enterprise.  

The IRS recommends taking the following action to both rectify the errors and minimize or avoid penalties wherever possible: 

  1. For each affected employee, get a copy of the Social Security Card to verify name and SSN match; and
  2. Verify the name/SSN through the Social Security Administration.
    • Note: They will only give you a name match response of "yes" or "no".
      • If "no", then you’ll need to document all the steps taken to try and verify the information.

In addition to these steps, TempWorks recommends you contact affected employees directly and use other federal documentation you have available to verify the SSN.  Document all steps taken to solicit the correct information for each employee.  

*Note* These steps are further outlined in Publication 1586.

If your file(s) contain errors 4-6, please provide the correct values if you wish to have us update these and resubmit the file with the new information.
