Common E-Filing Errors and Solutions

This section lists the problems/errors most frequently encountered with electronic files submitted to IRS/ECC-MTB and their solutions.  If you come across an error that is not listed here, please e-mail us at support@1099fire.com and we will update this webpage and find the solution.

There are four (4) types of filings, 4 unique IRS publications that specify how you need to e-file and 4 different categories of errors that can arise. The four (4) types of filings and their errors are as follows:

1. Errors from e-filing any 1097, 1098, 1099, 3921, 3922, 5498, W-2G IRS form.

2. Errors from e-filing IRS Form 1042-S.

3. Errors from e-filing IRS Form 8027.

4. Errors from e-filing IRS 8955-SSA.

The above links layout the formatting errors and solutions to those errors. There are also non-formatting errors that have nothing to do with the formatting of the file itself that you are trying to e-file.  If you have any question about any error that has arisen while you were trying to electronically file, please contact technical support at support@1099fire.com.

Each of these types of filings requires a separate Transmitter Control Code (TCC).  You need a TCC number for submitting any 1099 form.  Lets say you electronically submit IRS Form 1099-MISC and IRS Form 1099-DIV.  The same TCC number can be used to submit those forms.  You can use that same TCC number to electronically file IRS Forms 3921, 5498 and W-2G.  However, you need a different/unique TCC number to electronically file IRS Form 1042-S or IRS Form 8027 or IRS Form 8955-SSA.  As a Service Bureau, we have four (4) separate and unique TCC numbers so that we can e-file any of these forms at any time.
