Reasons You Might Get Your Tax Return Rejected
Missing and Incorrect Information
A Dependent Claimed on Another Return
Previously Accepted Tax Return
Failure to Sign the Return
IRS will only accept signed tax returns. Signing your return serves as affirmation that the details are true and correct to the best of your knowledge. Both manual and electronic tax filers must sign their returns to avoid rejection by the IRS.
Those submitting their returns electronically must enter either their Adjusted Gross Income from the previous year or their Identity Protection Personal Identification Number (IP PIN) to sign their return electronically. The IRS matches those with the agency’s database to detect and prevent tax fraud since only the correct taxpayer should know their AGI or IP PIN.
