Why can't I e-file my return?

SOLVEDby TurboTax3540Updated March 29, 2023

Returns can't be e-filed if they:

Many nonresident and part-year state returns cannot be e-filed either, so we'll let you know if it must be paper-filed.

In addition, certain returns keep getting rejected because somebody else already claimed a dependent on the return or because of incorrect information in the IRS database. In these cases, there's nothing you can do to fix your return and e-file it. You'll need to file a paper return instead.
