Rejects + EF Messages

What causes EF Message 9002?

9002 - On returns that are not self-prepared, the firm's EIN is required for e-filing. 

In personal and business returns for many states, this state EF Message is generated unless one of these conditions is met:

  • The Federal return is marked self-prepared, no paid preparer (screen 1, Preparer # is None)
  • An EIN is entered in the firm setup (Setup > Firm(s) > Settings tab > Federal EIN)
  • Or the preparer associated with the return is marked as self-employed (Setup > Preparer(s) >Self-employed)
