Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.

Ask Your Own Tax Question

You do not amend your return (file form 1040X) for a rejected return. You need to open your return back up in whatever program you used to prepare and enter the correct EIN on the W2

Please let me know if you need more information.
If not then please scroll up to see the STARS to rate so I am credited.

I'm retired and don't have a W-2, just a 1099R.

Thanks, ***** ***** EIN on the 1099R is not correct

Ask Your Own Tax Question

Get the 1099R and look at the PAYER’S federal identification number and the number entered on the 1099R online.
