    TIN Type (EIN)

  4. Sometimes on the Rejects Register, Field 01-B may be invalid because there is a "2" in the field. This is an occasional program problem, because the "2" should not be generated until the return posts (the "2" indicates The TIN is an EIN). This causes an unpostable condition (UNP 301) also. When this occurs, look at the TIN on the return and change the TIN indicator field: "0" for an SSN and blank for an EIN. If you blank the field, enter a "1" in a circle above it, as Field 01-B is a fixed field (no field breaker).

    Note:

    The "2" is never used on the Error Register or on the ERS screen. It is generated only when the document posts.
