CFSFP Validation Process
The Combined Federal State Filing Program was established to simplify reporting of
Information Returns (1099-DIV, 1099-G, 1099-INT, 1099 MISC, 1099-OID, 1099-PATR, 1099-R and 5498) to
participating states. Due to increased concerns over proper disclosure of information, the Information Reporting
Program is enhancing the validation process of combined federal/state data.
Beginning in Tax Year 2009 (Calendar Year 2010), the IRS will verify the accuracy of the following field positions :
(1) If field position 26 in the “A” record contains a “1,” then field positions 747-748 in the “B” record must contain a valid state code or blanks.
(2) If the “B” record contains a state code in field positions 747-748, then the “A” record must contain a “1″ in field position 26.
