Can I E-File Again If My E-File Return Is Rejected by the IRS?
If you’re filing taxes with an H&R Block Online product and your e-file return is rejected by the IRS, we can help. There are many reasons a return might be rejected. For example, your name or date of birth might not match IRS records, or there might be a typo somewhere in your return.
However, just because your e-file return is rejected by the IRS doesn’t necessarily mean you have to resort to mailing a paper return. Depending on your specific situation, you might be able to e-file again.
First, try to correct any errors:
- While you’re logged into your MyBlock account, choose Fix Errors.
- On the page where the error has occurred, correct the error and click Next.
- Repeat as many times as needed until all errors are fixed.
If you’re still unable to e-file, you might need to file a paper extension form. Having to mail your return doesn’t necessarily mean it’s incorrect. Occasionally, e-file returns are rejected by the IRS, especially if the returns are particularly complex.
