Reject code F2441-526: Form 2441, Part II, Line 2(b), each "QualifyingPersonSSN" provided must not be the same as a "QualifyingPersonSSN" in Part II, Line 2 of Form 2441 in another accepted tax return

This return has been rejected by the IRS, because one or more qualifying persons identified on Form 2441 Part II, Line 2(b) has already been claimed as a qualifying person on another taxpayer’s return.

To identify the qualifying person in question, review the Description field above. The path statement has a number enclosed in brackets (for example, [x]). This number identifies the qualifying person on Form 2441 that caused the reject.

Verify the qualifying person's Social Security number (SSN) has been entered correctly. If necessary, correct the SSN and resubmit this return.

If there are no data entry errors and you believe this rejection is invalid, contact the IRS. You may need to print and mail your return.

If you determine dependent care expenses for the qualifying person have legitimately been claimed on another taxpayer's return, remove the dependent's care expenses and resubmit your return electronically.
