    Note:

    When corrections are made to Field 01NC or Field 01TIN, the computer will revalidate the entries with the NAP and reset the OLE indicators as appropriate upon transmitting the ERS screen. If Error Code 002 reappears, an unpostable condition may still exist. Re-verify the entries and refer to the remainder of the correction procedures.

    4. Ensure that the entity information matches the taxpayer on the extension. If these conditions are met, overlay Field 01TIN with the new EIN found on Master File.

    The Name Control on Master File is not correct and the entity on Master File needs to be corrected,   SSPND 320 to route the return to Entity Control for additional research. Attach Form 4227, notating why the return is being suspended.
    The Name Control has not been edited or transcribed correctly from Part I section C and the correct Name Control matches the under printed Name Control   Edit the correct Name Control in Part 1 section C and bring up the under printed Name Control in 01NC.

    A name change has occurred,   SSPND 320 to route the return to Entity Control for a TC 013. Attach Form 4227 requesting a name change (TC 013).
    IDRS research is not available,   SSPND 351 or 355.
    the Name Control still can not be determined   SSPND 320 to route the return to Entity Control for additional research. Attach Form 4227, notating why the return is being suspended.
    Research indicates that there are multiple EINs,   SSPND 320 and route to Entity for further action.
