@skurten12  enter $0 as prior year agi.

 

Your 2022 return must have been Accepted by the IRS for your prior year AGI to be on record. If you mailed your 2022 return, or it was late, you need to make sure it was Accepted by contacting the IRS directly.

You can print and mail your 2023 return or select I didn’t file last year, if your 2022 return was rejected and never resubmitted or accepted by the IRS.

Here are a few other possible reasons why you’re still getting an e-file rejection:

  • Filed late last year after mid-November or your return was processed after that time—try entering 0.
  • Amended your return last year—make sure you’re using the AGI from your original return, not the amended one. (If you only have a 1040X form, it’s on line 1, column A)
  • Rounded your AGI to the nearest dollar—be sure to round up when it’s 50 cents or more, and down when it’s 49 cents or less.
  • Filed with your spouse last year—you and your spouse have the same 2021 AGI. (Don’t split the AGI amount or enter 0 for one of you)

If you're still having trouble, we suggest that you check with the IRS to make sure that the copy of your return is the same as what they have in their records. To do this, you can order a transcript from the IRS.

If you’ve tried everything and nothing works, you can still file a paper return by printing out copies of your federal and state returns and mailing them. We’ll include File by Mail Instructions on where to send your returns and what forms, if any, you need to include.

The IRS uses your prior year AGI to combat fraud.   

 

You can find your 2022 Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) by: 

 

  • Looking at line11 on page 1 of your 2022 Form 1040; or 
  • You can request a transcript of your 2022 tax return from the IRS to ensure you have the right number. You can request your transcript online at the following link: Get Transcript  

Check these items as well to ensure you have the correct number.  If you: 

  • Filed late last year after mid-November or your return was processed after that time—try entering 0
  • Amended your return last year—make sure you’re using the AGI from your original return, not the amended one. (If you only have a 1040X form, it’s on line 1, column A). 
  • Rounded your AGI to the nearest dollar—be sure to round up when it’s 50 cents or more and down when it’s 49 cents or less. 
  • Filed with your spouse last year—you and your spouse have the same 2022 AGI. (Don’t split the AGI amount or enter  0  for one of you). 

 

Time-saving Tip: If what you entered is correct and you continue to get a reject, you won't be able to e-file. There's probably a data mismatch at the government, or some other situation beyond your control that prevents your return from being e-filed. In this case, your only option would be to print and mail in your return. 

 

This article will give you instruction on how to print and mail your return.

@CatinaT1 ALL IN THE ORIGINAL RESPONSE. EXPERTS ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO COMMENT UNLESS ADDING SOMETHING, THEY ARE TO FIND ONE OF THE THOUSANDS OF UNANSWERED QUESTIONS! Your posts was made many hours later.
