Filing taxes

So I was submitting my taxes and it kept saying my AGI for 2019 was wrong, I gave up on it after months but when the deadline started to approach I tried again and still nothing. I filed for an extension and it was approved and when that happened it wouldn’t let me try to fix my AGI anymore and still says it was approved. I haven’t gotten a update or any money back or even my stimulus checks and at this point I’m frustrated. Could someone please help me.

 If it was rejected for AGI—-be aware that many 2019 returns took so long for the IRS to process that your 2019 AGI might not be in the IRS system.   Try using zero instead.


If filing with zero is rejected then file again but select the option that you did not file last year.  The IRS does not see that question and it will allow you to e-file with no AGI question.


Or—-if you filed as a “non-filer” just to get the stimulus check on a 2019 return, try using $1 as the AGI.


If that does not work and you still cannot e-file, then print, sign, and mail your tax return.

I’ll try it out, I’ve used ever number but I’ll try again and if not file through mail. Thank you so much!
