If the IRS is rejecting your tax return even with a 0 (zero) entered for the 2017 AGI then you have no choice but to print and mail the 2018 tax return.  The 2017 AGI is not required with a mailed tax return since you have to physically sign and date the tax return before mailing.

Since you did not file a 2017 tax return, you would need to enter a 0 (zero) for the 2017 AGI
