That's not what it means. Rather,

Reject Code R0000-544-02: The Primary Taxpayer SSN must not be the same as a Dependent SSN on another tax return.

This return has been rejected by the IRS because the taxpayer has been listed as a dependent on another tax return.

Verify the taxpayer's Social Security Number has been entered correctly.  If the taxpayer has been listed as a dependent on another tax return for the current tax year, no dependents can be claimed on this return.  

You have to file by mail.

Is it saying like I'm the taxpayer filing a tax return so I put my social its saying that I cant file because someone else has claimed me as a dependant on their tax return correct?
