Reject code IND-511: For the filing status selected in the return, the Primary SSN in the Return Header must not be the same as Spouse SSN on another return with filing status Married filing separate

This return has been rejected by the IRS because the taxpayer’s Social Security Number (SSN) has been listed as the spouse SSN on another tax return with filing status Married Filing Separately.

Solution

Verify the taxpayer's SSN has been entered correctly.  

If the taxpayer’s SSN is accurate and if it has been listed as the spouse SSN on another tax return for the current tax year, review the taxpayer’s filing status.   The filing status on this return cannot be Single, Married Filing Jointly, or Qualifying Widower.
 
If you feel this reject has been received in error and you don't want to change the taxpayers filing status, you may print and file by mail.
