IND-452 If 'AmendedReturnInd' in the return is not checked, then the Primary SSN in the Return Header must not be the same as the TIN of a previously accepted electronic Individual return filed for the same tax period.
This rejection happens when a return with either you or your spouse's Social Security number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) has already been filed with the federal government.
This can happen if:
- Your spouse or another family member filed your return for you
- Your (or your spouse's) SSN or ITIN was entered incorrectly
- The same SSN or ITIN was used for both filers on a joint return
- Somebody filed a fraudulent return using your (or your spouse's) SSN or ITIN
If you're sure nobody you know already filed your return for you, the next step is to review your entries in TurboTax to make sure there aren't any transposed or incorrect numbers.
