Single Member vs Multi Member LLC EIN Number

Highlighted
Level 2

I have a client who modified their LLC to include multiple members (vs. one member) during the tax year.  We are now filing as a Partnership vs. disregarded entity, however, they have thus far been unable to receive a corrected EIN number (indicating multiple members) from the IRS self service site.  What are the ramifications of this issue, should we file the partnership return using the current "sole member" EIN?

In theory that should work, but in realty the return will most likely get bounced if you file electronically since the IRS doesn't have a partnership in its system with that EIN.

Thats what I was thinking, it will get bounced back due to the EIN not matching the entity type.
