Yes. Adjusted gross income (AGI) is an individual's total gross income minus specific deductions. If you file a joint tax return, your AGI and your spouse's AGI is the same number, even if your spouse did not earn any money last year.

My wife AGI was rejected, the amount I put was rejected, what should I do ?

Or it got rejected because I put the application 1040 when it asked, instead of the 1040x since I amend my 2018 taxes. She did not work that year we filed them married jointly. If you can please advise me. I did them with turbo tax

The IRS uses your prior year AGI to combat fraud. 

 

You can request a transcript of your 2018 tax return from the IRS to ensure you have the right number. You can request your transcript online at the following link: Get Transcript 

 

Check these items as well to ensure you have the correct number.  If you:

  • Filed late last year after mid-November or your return was processed after that time—try entering 0.
  • Amended your return last year—make sure you’re using the AGI from your original return, not the amended one. (If you only have a 1040X form, it’s on line 1, column A).
  • Rounded your AGI to the nearest dollar—be sure to round up when it’s 50 cents or more and down when it’s 49 cents or less.
  • Filed with your spouse last year—you and your spouse have the same 2018 AGI. (Don’t split the AGI amount or enter 0 for one of you).

Unfortunately, without the correct number, 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.

If you filed a 2019 tax return as Married Filing Jointly the 2019 AGI is the same for the both of you.

See this TurboTax support FAQ for the IRS error code - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/rejections/help/e-file-reject-ind-031-04-or-ind-032-04-the-agi-or-...

I submitted my federal taxes using the same AGI for myself and my wife. The return was rejected. Other than file through postal mail, what are my options?

You can try to e-file again keeping these tips in mind when entering AGI: 

What if I entered the correct AGI and I’m still getting an e-file reject?

 

Another option is to verify what the IRS has on file for you by creating or logging in to: IRS: View Your Tax Account Information.
