Hold Inquiry Screens
Payee Hold Information (PYHOLD)

The Payee Hold Information (PYHOLD) screen displays information for an individual or entity whose TIN has been placed on hold. The data is displayed in hold date order with oldest date first, and includes the hold source, hold reason and liability amount. The liability amount is displayed only to the Hold Source agency that placed the individual or entity on hold.

Note: An individual or entity does not have to be set up as a payee in TINS to be set up on hold.

PYHOLD automatically calculates the check digit for a TIN.

Access

The PYHOLD screen may be accessed either through the INQMEN menu or Line 1 entry.

Note: Inquiry by mail code is not applicable for PYHOLD.

Steps:

  1. Follow the instructions for the INQMEN Menu

    –OR–

    Enter PYHOLD.(10- or 11-digit TIN) on Line 1 and press Enter.

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