Our taxes were rejected for the following reason:IND-517-01 - A Dependent SSN in the return must not be the same as the Primary or Spouse SSN on another return where 'PrimaryClaimAsDependentInd' or 'SpouseClaimAsDependentInd' is not checked.
How did you resolve this? We are having the same error code and I checked off the box saying “someone can claim you as a dependent” on my daughter’s tax return when I sent it in weeks ago.
There are two questions in the program, "Can someone else claim me" and "Will someone else claim me".
Please make sure her 1040 shows that she is being claimed as a dependent by someone else.
If your return is still being rejected, all you can do is print and mail the return in.
