E-file reject F2441-524: The last name and Social Security number of your qualifying person(s) for your dependent care expenses don’t match IRS records

This rejection can occur when the name or Social Security number of the qualifying person for the Child and Dependent Care Credit has been entered incorrectly.

Less commonly, this rejection can be caused by a mismatch with the IRS database, or if the qualifying person's Social Security number was issued late last year.
