TurboTax follows the IRS guidelines for acceptable ZIP codes. If the two-letter state abbreviation doesn't match the ZIP code, you'll receive this error when attempting to e-file.
If you receive this error:
- Double-check you entered the correct two-letter state code
- Make sure you've entered the ZIP code in either 5-digit or 9-digit format (for example 12345 or 12345-6789)
Look up the correct ZIP code for the street address in question
