The error code that you have received means that your spouse's SSN has been used on a tax return that was filed before yours. It could be that someone used the number to claim a dependent, and it could be a mistake on that person's return.

But the IRS is going to continue to reject your tax return if you keep trying to e-file. The only solution is for you to print your tax return out and file by mail.
