Payee Inquiry Screens
Prior Fiscal Year Payment Information (PFYWRT)

The PFYWRT screen displays summary payment information for the second and third fiscal years prior to the current and first prior fiscal years. The same information displayed on PYWRNT is displayed on PFYWRT. Payments are displayed in payment issue date order with the most recent date first. Each agency can view only the payments it issues to the TIN.

PFYWRT automatically calculates the check digit for a TIN.


Access PFYWRT through the TINS Inquiry Menu (INQMEN) screen or Line 1 Entry.


  1. Follow the instructions for the INQMEN Menu

    Note: FY is a required field in addition to the TIN. Enter the last two digits of the fiscal year for the fiscal year you wish to search.


    Enter PFYWRT.(10- or 11-digit TIN).YY on Line 1 along with the options for the search desired:

    Note: Replace YY with the last two digits of the fiscal year for the fiscal year you wish to search.

    If the TIN is… Then enter… Notes
    • 1 + nine-digit EIN

      – or –

    • 1 + nine-digit EIN + check digit
    TINS calculates the check digit when a 10-digit TIN is entered.
    Comptroller-assigned 11-digit TIN that begins with 3  
    A 7 TIN for payees who provide an SSN or ITIN
    • 11-digit TIN that begins with 7

      – or –

    • 2 + nine-digit SSN or ITIN

      – or –

    • 2 + nine-digit SSN or ITIN + check digit

    When entering a 2-based TIN that is on file, the inquiry results display the assigned 11-digit 7 TIN.
  2. MAILCODE (Optional): If desired, enter the three-digit mail code:
    • In the optional field on INQMEN Menu


    • PFYWRT.(10- or 11-digit TIN).(YY).(three-digit mail code) and press Enter.
    If the mail code is… Then TINS displays…
    Not entered, All payments for the TIN
    Entered, Only the payments for the specified mail code

    Note: The mail code paid will display in the MC PAID column whether the line 1 entry includes only the TIN or both the TIN with a specific mail code.

    If payments have not been issued to the TIN or mail code payments during the fiscal year requested, TINS displays the message No Payment Detail Information Exists.

  3. If current and first prior fiscal years are needed: Payee payment information is available for a total of four fiscal years — the current fiscal year and the first, second and third fiscal years prior to the current fiscal year. To view payment information for the current and first prior fiscal years, use the Payee Payment Information (PYWRNT) screen.
  4. If researching payroll payments: Payroll payments are processed during the month prior to the issue date of the payment and display with the payment issue date.

    To obtain the date a payroll document processed, access the Payee Voucher History (PVOUIN) screen using the payee’s TIN and cross-reference the Document Number displayed on PFYWRT.

  5. Use the Direction Message Keys to navigate through the screen information.
