My 990 Return Got Rejected With Error Code: R0000-922-01. What Should I Do?

My return got rejected with error code R0000-922-01. What Should I do?

The IRS may reject the 990 returns for various reasons. Typically, the rejections are intimated with error codes and each code indicates a particular reason why the 990 return was rejected.

If your 990 return was rejected with the E-file Error Code: R0000-922-01, you may not know what this error means or how to address it, but don’t worry! You’ve come to the right place.

What is Error Code R0000-922-01?

The rejection message that appears on your screen reads, “The business name, EIN, and the name control on the return filed didn’t match the IRS’s name control.” What does this mean?

It means that the name control of your business and the EIN entered on your 990 return isn’t matching with the ones in the IRS records. 

Note: Name control is a four-character identification code that is derived from the organization’s name. 

So, if you’re met with this rejection message, it is obvious that your form contains at least one of the following mistakes that cause a mismatch in the name control.

  • Incorrect EIN 
  • Mistyped organization name
