Partnership Employer ID Number

All partner tax identification numbers are showing up in the system as social security numbers XXX-XX-XXXX, even when the partner is an entity which should have an EIN# in this format XX-XXXXXX.  PLEASE FIX THIS IT LOOKS VERY SLOPPY.

Do you have the correct entity type selected in the K-1 partner worksheet?

Yes, give it a try and you will see it still prints like a SS# format  XXX-XX-XXXX

Perhaps only in the Partnership returns.

I took you up on your challenge and you are correct that it printed that way.  However, if I entered the ID number using a dash after the first two digits it printed like it should.
