E-file reject IND-181-01: The Identity Protection PIN (IP PIN) for the first taxpayer on your return is missing

If you've ever gotten an IP PIN or CP01A notice from the IRS, or opted in to their IP PIN pilot program, you must enter your 2016 IP PIN to validate your identity so you can e-file.

You'll get this rejection if your IP PIN is missing.
