Question
I filed electronically and my tax return was rejected. What do I do now?
Answer

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

  • You should receive an explanation of why your return was rejected.
  • If you made a mistake in entering a social security number, a payer's identification number, omitted a form, or misspelled a name, you can correct these errors and electronically file your tax return again.
  • Unfortunately, there are other errors that will cause you to have to file your return by mail.
