I file Fed. tax with my wife as a Joint filing.
do we have to have the 5 digit e file PIN same or different?
my e file was rejected some reason. I used two different 5 digit e file PIN.
that might be the reason why it was rejected or some thing else.
please let me know which one is right that it must be same or different.
When filing MFJ, you have the option to select any number. Typically, I have seen people use same five for both spouse and yourself.
When a return is rejected, it will provide you some context to address before amending and re-filing.
