My income taxes got rejected what do i do?

You should have received an email with the reason your taxes were rejected.

We don't have access to your tax return to know for certain.

The most common reason for e-file rejection is the wrong AGI.

If you need your 2017 AGI here is where to find on each type of tax return:

Form 1040 – Line 37

Form 1040A – Line 21 

Form 1040EZ – Line 4

Form 1040NR – Line 36

Form 1040X – Line 1, Column A

If you prepared in TurboTax Online, here is how to access your prior return:

1.       Make sure you’re signed in to your TurboTax account.

2.       Select Tax Home from the left menu.

3.       Scroll down to Your tax returns & documents and select 2017.

4.       Select View adjusted gross Income (AGI)

If you prepared your tax return in TurboTax CD/Download, it should be saved on your computer.

If you prepared your tax return through other software, you can request a transcript from the IRS.

If you filed your tax return after October, 2018, use $0.

If you can't resolve your error, you will need to change your filing method in File Step 3 to file by mail. You will then need to print and mail your tax returns.
