My tax return got rejected says dependent needs a ip pin never had that before and did not get a notice in mail why am I getting this?

The IRS issues an IP PIN to confirmed victims of identity theft.

 

The 6 digit IP PIN is entered here:

 

  • Down the left side of the screen, click Federal.
  • Across the top of the screen, click Other tax situations.
  • Scroll down to Identity Protection PIN.
  • Click Start to the right.

The 6 digit Identity Protection Select PIN will be required whether you efile or mail your tax return.  Please see this IRS website to see how to retrieve your IP PIN.

 

Your mother-in-law may qualify as a dependent as a qualifying relative.  The tests for a qualifying relative are:

 

  • Qualifying Child: They are not the “qualifying child” of another taxpayer or your “qualifying child.”
  • Gross Income: The dependent being claimed earns less than $4,700 in 2023.
  • Total Support: You provide more than half of the total support for the year.
  • Member of Household or Relationship: The person (a friend, girlfriend, non-blood relative) must live with you all year as a member of your household or be related to you.

TurboTax software will ask you simple questions and give you the tax deductions and credits for which you are eligible based upon your answers.
