I am a registered ERO (Electronic Return Originator) with the IRS. After I successfully completed the e-services registration process, I attempted to complete an Application to TIN Match. Why did I receive a message that I was not authorized to use the TIN Matching system?

The TIN Matching Program is solely intended to assist those members of the Third-Party Payor community, and their authorized agents, with meeting their obligation for filing accurate and complete annual Information Return documents. At this time, the program is not available to any individual, firm or organization that does not fall into the category of a Payor or an authorized Payor agent.

For additional information see Publication 2108a, Online TIN Matching Program.
