Why can I not check the "Check if you intend to file form NYS-45/ATT via the E-File Center" box?

This box may be unavailable due to one or more of the following reasons:

  • The Payer has a foreign address
  • The Payer's TIN is not an EIN
  • The Payer's UI Employer Registration Number or Withholding ID Number is not in a correct format
  • The Payer's Withholding ID Number begins with "NY" or "TF"

Checking the Payer information

  1. Click on the Payer List button.
  2. Highlight the payer the NYS-45 has been created for.
  3. Uncheck the Foreign Address box for the payer.
  4. Change the payer's TIN to the EIN format.
  5. Click the Payer State Info button. 
  6. The State ID for W-2 (Withholding ID Number) should be in the following format: 123456789 or 12345678901.  The State ID for W-2 should be 9 or 11 digits and cannot start with NY or TF.
  7. The State ID for SUI number should be in the following format: 1234567. The State ID for SUI should not exceed 7 characters.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Double click on the NYS-45 in the Form List.
  10. Check the "Check if you intend to file Form NYS-45/ATT via the E-file Center" box.
