Why an error message for no EIN on 1099G.
I am getting an error message on my 1099G forms for state and local income tax refunds for the state of PA. I have never gotten this error message before, and I never enter an EIN number. The error message is telling me that I need to enter an EIN number. I happen to know the state of PA's EIN, but I do not know the EIN for local tax collector. This is extremely odd, as I have never had this message before. PA does not even send out 1099G, and they are not on the list of states that require an EIN for efiling. This seems like a new error message. I have also never had this kind of error message for local income tax returns 1099G forms either.
