I have the same question but I did put in the total AGI and it was rejected. Then I put in the Tax Payer AGI only (filed separately on state so I had it) and that was rejected. Now what?
The IRS uses your prior year AGI to combat fraud.
You can find your 2018 Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) by:
- Looking at line 7 on page 2 of your 2018 Form 1040; or
- 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).
Time-saving Tip: If what you entered is correct and you continue to get a reject, you won't be able to e-file. There's probably a data mismatch at the government, or some other situation beyond your control that prevents your return from being e-filed. In this case, 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.
