E-file rejects F1040-526-02 or F1040A-526-02: 'SpouseBirthDt' in the Return Header must match the e-File database

This rejection occurs when the date of birth for the second person listed on the return (the spouse) is either incorrect or doesn't match IRS records.

The code and message associated with this rejection varies with the tax form:

  • F1040-526-02: If 'PINTypeCd' in the Return Header has the value "Self-Select On-Line" and Form 1040, 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 'SpouseDeathDt' does not have a value, then 'SpouseBirthDt' in the Return Header must match the e-File database.
  • F1040A-526-02: If your filing status is "Married filing jointly" and 'SpecialProcessingLiteralCd' does not have a value and 'CombatZoneCd' does not have a value and 'SpecialProcessingCodeTxt' does not have a value and 'SpouseDeathDt' does not have a value, then 'SpouseBirthDt' in the Return Header must match the e-File database.
