W2/W3 E-file error for Federal and State

HELP!!!  I cannot e-file my W2/W3s because I have an employee with a social security number that starts with a 9.  It is a legit number so why won't it accept it?

Re: W2/W3 E-file error for Federal and State

No SSN's don't start with a 9.

ITIN's do, but they're not SSN's and no one with only a ITIN should ever be hired or paid wages. 

No numbers that start with 000, 666 or the range 900-999 will ever be issued as SSN's.  Numbers in the 900-999 range are for ITIN's and other purposes, but not SSN's.
