Alerts and notices

Access Screen Cr, located under the Credits folder. In the Provider information statement field, verify the SSN(s) and/or EIN(s) entered. Valid ranges for Social Security Numbers are listed below. Note that the EIN you entered for the provider may not be valid, and based on the ranges below, it may be classified as an SSN, rather than an EIN.

When an SSN contains zeros, the SSN is a test SSN, and therefore, not a valid SSN.

Note: If the entered EIN is formatted improperly as an SSN, delete the EIN and re-enter it and manually insert the dash '-' after the first two digits.
