E-file rejection codes F1040-525-02 or F1040A-525-02: Date of birth mismatch
This rejection occurs when the date of birth for the first person listed on the return is either incorrect or doesn't match IRS records.
The code and message associated with this rejection varies with the tax form:
- F1040-525-02: The date of birth you entered on your tax return does not match what the IRS has in its files for you.
- F1040A-525-02: If 'PINTypeCd' in the Return Header has the value "Self-Select On-Line" and Form 1040A, Line 2 checkbox "Married filing jointly" is checked, and 'SpecialProcessingLiteralCd' does not have a value and 'CombatZoneCd' does not have a value and 'SpecialProcessingCodeTxt' does not have a value and 'PrimaryDeathDt' does not have a value, then 'PrimaryBirthDt' in the Return Header must match the e-File database.
