What are e-file reject errors IND-018-02 and IND-019-02?

SOLVEDby TurboTax197Updated 2 weeks ago

These rejections occur if there is missing information for a deceased taxpayer:

  • IND-018-02: If there is a date of death for the primary taxpayer, then the name of a representative (which can be the spouse) must be entered as the In Care of Name in the filer address
  • IND-019-02: If Spouse is deceased, then there must be an In Care of Name entered
    • Note: This rejection may be caused when both the taxpayer and spouse are reported as deceased. If so, this return cannot be electronically filed

To resolve, choose the situation that applies to the return.
