My taxes were rejected

My tax return was rejected and they said the issue was the SSN for my dependents and I checked and it was right and it also it could be because of the last name so I guess I put “F” in instead of “Fountain” could it be because I didn’t put the whole last name? Also when they said I could fix the issue it told me that my e-file couldn’t go through cause it’s not open for the season until 02/03/2020. Do I have to wait that long? Also do I have to pay again to refile?

If you qualify to claim the children under the IRS rules, then file a paper return and claim the children as dependents. This will bypass the issue with the e-file rejection. This will also start action on the part of the IRS to determine who actually qualifies to claim the child.


For more information, see IRS Publication 501 to determine if you qualify to claim the child based on the IRS rules.
