How do i get my AIG CODE OR INFO TO FINISH MY FILING ONLINE? I DONT HAVE IT

Your 2015 tax return shows your 2015 Adjusted Gross Income  (AGI)  If you filed a joint return then the AGI is the same for each of you.

Form 1040EZ    line 4

Form 1040A       line 21

Form 1040        line 37

If you are using the same TT account that you used last year, you should also be able to find this number in your Tax Timeline for 2015

If entering the amount from your 2015 tax return does not work, then try entering “0” instead.  If that does not work and you still cannot e-file, then print, sign, and mail your tax return.

You can get a transcript of your past return from the IRS:  

https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript

Note: If you filed late or amended your return, your correct 2015 AGI may not be in the system. The IRS database may have errors for 2015 AGI's.  A number of people have experienced rejections  from the IRS even when entering correct AGI's from their 2015 returns.   When it happens, you just have to mail the return.

You can find your 2018 Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) by:

 

  • Looking at line 7 on page 2 of your 2018 Form 1040; or
  • You can request a transcript of your 2018 tax return from the IRS to ensure you have the right number. You can request your transcript online at the following link: Get Transcript 

Check these items as well to ensure you have the correct number.  If you:

  • Filed late last year after mid-November or your return was processed after that time—try entering 0.
  • Amended your return last year—make sure you’re using the AGI from your original return, not the amended one. (If you only have a 1040X form, it’s on line 1, column A).
  • Rounded your AGI to the nearest dollar—be sure to round up when it’s 50 cents or more and down when it’s 49 cents or less.
  • Filed with your spouse last year—you and your spouse have the same 2018 AGI. (Don’t split the AGI amount or enter 0 for one of you).

 

Unfortunately, without the correct number, your only option would be to print and mail in your return. 

 

This article will give you instruction on how to print and mail your return.

Your 2021 tax return shows your 2020 Adjusted Gross Income  (AGI)  If you filed a joint return then the AGI is the same for each of you.

 

Form 1040        line 11

If you are using the same TT account that you used last year, you should also be able to find this number in your Tax Home for 2020

If entering the amount from your 2020 tax return does not work, then try entering “0” instead.  If that does not work and you still cannot e-file, then print, sign, and mail your tax return.

Note:  If you mail your federal return, you will also need to mail your state return.  You will not be able to e-file your state return.

it is a good idea to use a mailing service that will track it like UPS or certified mail.  Then you will know the IRS received it.

 

 

If you used the wrong AGI, your e-file  be rejected.  When you get the rejection notice, correct it and re-file.
