EFIN Suppression

Hello all,

I see a few threads about suppression PTINS and EFIN. Does anyone suppress the EFIN? I did in UltraTax and cannot figure out how to do it in Lacerte.

Thanks in advance,

Aaron

Where does the EFIN appear on the return?

On the bottom of the 8879.

@sjrcpa  should be able to confirm the answer to whether it is possible and why one might want to. I do not believe it can be suppressed.

 I don't think you can.

You'd want to because nefarious people steal them and file fraudulent returns under them. Happened to me. Got a nastygram from Arizona. Ended up getting a new EFIN and was able to resolve issue with Arizona.

Thanks for the reply. It does seem odd that its not suppressed if it is so important to protect it.
