Age/Name/SSN Rejects, Errors, Correction Procedures

Question: I filed electronically but my tax return was rejected. What do I do now?

Answer:

There must be an error on your return. Please review the following:

  • You should receive an explanation of why the return was rejected.
  • If a mistake was made when entering a social security number, a payer’s identification number, omitting a form, or misspelling a name; the errors can be corrected and the return can be resubmitted electronically again with the IRS.
  • Unfortunately, there are other errors that will cause you to have to file a paper return by mail.
  • If you have further questions, call us toll-free at 800-829-1040.
  • For general information about e-file, refer to Filing Your Taxes.
