How can I have filed more than once with ss#..? It wont exile.

If you used the IRS non-filer site to get a stimulus check, you will now get a  “duplicate SSN” rejection.  We are seeing people who did not notice or ignored the warning on that site about using it if they would be filing a tax return.

Or if you were claimed as someone else's dependent, your SSN is in the system and you will not be able to e-file.  Do you meet the criteria to be claimed as someone else's qualifying  child or qualifying relative?

 

WHO CAN I CLAIM AS A DEPENDENT?

 

You can claim a child, relative, friend, fiance (etc.) as a dependent on your 2019 taxes as long as they meet the following requirements:

Qualifying child

• They are related to you.

• They cannot be claimed as a dependent by someone else.

• They are a U.S. citizen, resident alien, national, or a Canadian or   Mexican resident.

• They are not filing a joint return with their spouse.

• They are under the age of 19 (or 24 for full-time students).

    • No age limit for permanently and totally disabled children

        They live with you for more than half the year (exceptions apply).

Qualifying relative

• They don't have to be related to you (despite the name).

• They cannot be claimed as a dependent by someone else.

• They are a U.S. citizen, resident alien, national, or a Canadian or Mexican resident.

• They are not filing a joint return with their spouse.

They lived with you the entire year.

• They made less than $4200  (not counting Social Security)

• You provided more than half of their financial support. More info

When you add someone as a dependent, we'll ask a series of questions to make sure you can claim them.

An SSN can only be claimed on one tax return each tax year. That's it. Once an SSN has been used on a tax return, and that return has been accepted by the IRS, it flat out can not be used again for the same tax year. Period. End of story. There is no workaround.

If the SSN was used fraudulently by another and they've already filed, then you have no choice but to print, sign and mail your return to the IRS. Again, there is no workaround. Once the IRS computers have an SSN marked as "claimed" for that tax year, that's it. You're done.
