 FEIN/ Name Control error


Why doesn't my FEIN match my NAME CONTROL?

1. Make sure that your FEIN is greater than 2 weeks old.

2. Double check your FEIN.

3. If you are a sole proprietor, your Name Control should be the first 4 letters of your last name. (For example, Jody Smith - Should be SMIT)

4. If you are a corporation/LLC/Partnership, your Name Control should be the first 4 letters of the business name. (For example, Speedy Trucking Inc would be SPEE)

Log back into your account and continue the failed filing. Go into the business page and manually change the Name Control to the correct value. Hit the save and continue button at the bottom of the page. Do not forget to re-enter your payment information since we do not keep that information on our servers.
