Solution

The IRS database indicates an installment payment is due for the First Time Homebuyer Installment Payment. This payment amount should be included on your return.  

The IRS has provided a direct online lookup tool to view the First Time Homebuyer Information. Access the lookup tool and make appropriate changes.  After you've made the changes, re-submit your return electronically.

If the reject continues, you'll be unable to electronically file and will need to paper file and mail this return.
