How to Efile 2021 with 2020 FED return has not been processed yet

I filed my 2020 Fed and State on Oct 17, 2021 by mail, CA state was processed quickly. Fed still has not processed, I called the IRS at 14 weeks, and they told me to expect it in another16 weeks, this puts my 2020 return mid May '22 and when I look to Efile, it says if the Adjusted income doesn't match, it may be rejected.

So what do I do to Efile this return?

 If it was rejected for AGI—-be aware that many 2020 returns took so long for the IRS to process that your 2020 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.

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

Hello,

Thank you for the advice.

I had not tried, as I was not sure what the meaning of "rejected" would do.

Like it may not let me file in another manor at all or something like that.
