To create a file for upload, follow these steps:
- Validate Payee names in MAG-FILER. Payee names can only contain a space, ampersand (&), comma (,) and hyphens (-).
- Select the Utilities tab and click TIN Matching then select Create IRS TIN Matching File. The file created uses the first part of the payer name and MAG-FILER’s assigned Rec#.
- MAG-FILER will display the file location for upload and link you to the IRS e-Services site to upload your txt file. To login manually go to https://www.irs.gov/e-services .
- You will receive an email from the IRS to check your e-Services Mailbox for your txt file containing matching responses. You can view your file at the IRS site or download it to your PC. Use a text editor like Notepad to view All Responses in the IRS txt file or you can use MAG-FILER’s Review IRS TIN Matching Results that displays mismatch responses only.
