The Duplicate Tax ID Warning Message is a feature that can be used to help prevent organizations from registering in a site more than once. When registering, if an applicant enters a tax ID number (EIN) that is already registered in the system, the duplicate tax ID warning message can appear prompting the applicant to reach out to the site administrator before continuing.
Sample Warning Message
Attention Applicant! The Tax ID number you have entered is already registered in the system. Please do not create a duplicate account. Please contact the Foundation at email@example.com to receive your log on credentials.
The Tax ID warning message does not prevent the applicant from registering. The applicant can close the message and continue. If a duplicate organization is created, refer to Merge Duplicate Organizations. By default this message is turned off. To have the Duplicate Tax ID Message added to your registration process, please contact Support.
