Rejection Message: The business name, EIN, and the name control on the return filed didn't match the IRS's name control.
What does it mean: The name control of your business and the EIN doesn't match with the ones on the IRS records. Name Control is a four-character identifier derived from the organization's name. For instance, for an organization named "Ashton Foundation," the name control would be "ASHT." This is assigned by the IRS when the organization requests an Employer Identification Number (EIN).
In this case, these are two likely mistakes that would have led to the rejection of your return.
a. Incorrect EIN. Or,
b. Mistyped the organization name.
Anyone or both mistakes will cause a mismatch in the name control.
Resolution: Check if the EIN and the Organization Name entered are correct. If there are errors, correct those, and re-transmit the return at no additional cost.

We'll keep you informed on the status of the return once we hear back from the IRS.
