I am correcting a tax return that has been rejected. Why isn't it allowing me to e-file it when it is the same return that had originally been e-filed.

Why did it reject?   What did you correct?  Maybe it did go through the fist time.

Why do you say it is not allowing you to e-file? What are you seeing or experiencing?

 

Here's how you can fix it: 

Sign in to your account and select the Fix my return button. Follow any “fix it” instructions to update the information causing the rejection. 

 

Note: Not all rejections will have explicit guides to fix the information. You’ll need to navigate to the program area to address the cause of the rejection. 

 

Time-saving Tip: If what you originally entered is correct, you won't be able to e-file. There's probably a data mismatch at the government, a dependent that's already been claimed, or some other situation beyond your control that prevents your return from being e-filed. In this case, 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.
