Payee Inquiry Screens
Payee Payment Information (PYWRNT)

The Payee Payment Information (PYWRNT) screen displays summary payment information for the current and prior fiscal years.

Payments are displayed by payment issue date with the most recent date first. Each agency can view only the payments it issues to the TIN.

PYWRNT automatically calculates the check digit for a TIN.

Access

The PYWRNT screen may be accessed either through the INQMEN Menu or a Line 1 entry from any TINS screen.

Steps:

  1. Follow the instructions for the INQMEN Menu

    –OR–

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

    If the TIN is… Then enter… Notes
    EIN-based,
    • 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

    Note: 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 MAILCODE field if using INQMEN

      –OR–

    • PYWRNT.(10- or 11-digit TIN).(three-digit mail code) in Line 1 entry and press Enter
    If a 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, TINS displays the message No Payment Detail Information Exists.

  3. If 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 second and third prior fiscal years, use the Prior Fiscal Year Payment Information (PFYWRT) 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 PYWRNT.

  5. Use the direction message keys to navigate through the screen information.
