IRS, State Return Rejection Codes
If your e-filed 2019 Tax Return was rejected by the IRS and/or the state tax agency - eFile.com (or any online tax site) does not reject tax returns - please don't panic over this rejection. Usually, it requires a simple correction of a birth date, a Social Security Number, or a PIN or AGI number. Make the correction and re-eFile at no extra charge. There are cases that will require you to PRINT and MAIL your tax return (click the "Details, Instructions" links below for more information).
Please don't think that if you prepared and eFiled your tax return on a different site and entered the exact same information, you would not get an IRS or State tax return rejection or error code. Our eFile.com Taxperts are here to guide you through correcting and re-filing your return.
Below is a list of the most frequent IRS rejection codes with instructions on how to make the correction, or you can search the IRS and State Tax Return Rejection or Error database. There you will find detailed instructions on how to correct your eFile.com tax return and re-efile at no additional charge. These correction instructions are only for eFile.com tax returns not for H&R Block® and/or TurboTax® filed returns.
If a IRS or State rejection code is not listed above, search for more IRS or Federal and State tax return rejection codes.
