Early e-filers of W2 forms may have erroneously received a notice from Aatrix that their 2020 Sage 100 payroll files contained erroneous social security information.
The message indicated that the employee SSNs could not be verified by the IRS and that the company submitting the file should verify that the correct SSN were submitted.
Later in the day Aatrix began to notify users that the message had been sent to some in error and there may not be any issue with the social security number validation.
Aatrix advises that if you have received a message indicating SSN mismatches that you can use the following instructions to verify your filing:
