how to find State EINs for taxpayers who need to report taxable refunds from prior years?

Client is amending a 2017 tax return.  her wage and income statement from IRS shows two 1099-Gs received - taxable refunds from two states (New Jersey and Illinois).

I have the last four of EIN for the states, but I can't seem to find a way to locate the full EIN.

Does anyone have advice on how to locate the EINs?  My client insists they never received the 1099-Gs...

Thank you for sending!  

The last four digits listed for New Jersey on the 1099-G from the IRS Wage and Income Transcript is 6013.

I don't know what to do...?

Thank you for sending!  This is an amazing list, that I will keep and use in the future for sure!

Though, comparing the last four of the EIN from the Wage and Income Transcript 1099-G (6013), it doesn't match any EIN on the list you provided.

 

Any suggestions as to how to cross-check?

 

Thank you again!

Sorry  I don't know.  Maybe find a NJ tax practitioner to call????

 Did the client itemize in 2016 that you need to report that state refunds on the 2017 federal return?

Yes, I think I will call NJ. 

Yes, the taxpayer did Itemize in 2016 unfortunately.
