Problem: The IRS has rejected your return - not eFile.com - because the primary SSN on this return can not be the same as the spouse SSN on another return filed for this tax year with filing status married joint or separate with the spouse exemption claimed.
Solution: Let us help you turn this into an IRS acceptance. Sign into your eFile.com account: https://mytaxes.efile.com/1040/SignIn/, and click Name and Address on the left side menu. Check primary, spouse SSN and filing status on the right side page. Make necessary corrections of updating the SSNs or filing status. Save the changes, click Continue and follow the screen instruction to re-efile your federal and state returns for free. You can do this as often as it takes to get accepted. However, should you have entered your data correctly and you keep getting rejected for any reasons, PRINT your return(s) - IRS and State(s) - and MAIL it in on time here: https://www.efile.com/where-to-mail-tax-return-form-irs-mailing-address-for-refund/
After that, contact the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 and/or State and discuss your tax return in more detail. If the IRS does not accept your return, for the same reasons stated above, ask yourself if you have already filed elsewhere or if you have data security concerns please visit: https://www.efile.com/tax-return-identity-theft-and-refund-fraud/ .
