SYMPTOM

The 941, 944, or 940 form was rejected for an invalid PIN.

CAUSE

To file a 941, 944, or 940 form electronically require an IRS issued PIN.  The form could have been rejected for one of two reasons:

  • The PIN entered on the form does not match what the IRS has on record for the EIN.
  • There is no PIN assigned to the EIN entered on the form.

SOLUTION

Procedure 1: Verify the PIN entered

If you are certain that a PIN was applied for and assigned to the EIN, please contact the IRS at 1-866-255-0654 to verify the validity of the PIN entered.

Procedure 2: Apply for a PIN

If a PIN was not applied for and assigned to the EIN, please submit a PIN application to the IRS.  This can be completed, free of charge, on Yearli.
