E-file rejection errors IND-031-03 or IND-032-03: PrimaryPriorYearAGIAmt or SpousePriorYearAGIAmt mismatch

How to fix an e-filed return that was rejected with one of these errors:

  • IND-031-03: 'PrimaryPriorYearPIN' or 'PrimaryPriorYearAGIAmt' in the Return Header must match the e-File database.
  • IND-032-03: 'SpousePriorYearPIN' or 'SpousePriorYearAGIAmt' in the Return Header must match the e-File database.

Solution

Use your 2015 AGI, not your PIN, to verify your identity. Simply open TurboTax and follow the on-screen instructions to enter your AGI and resubmit your return.

If your return keeps getting rejected, or you can't get your 2015 AGI:

  • Try entering 0 as your AGI. This sometimes works for taxpayers whose 2015 returns weren't processed by the IRS before late November of 2016.
  • File a paper return instead of e-filing.
