How do you resolve IRS rejection code IND-518-02

My client is filing married filing separately.  His federal return was rejected since "SpouseClaimAsDependentInd" was not checked.  Where is this checked in the program?

It's on the fed info worksheet somewhere, start scrolling

Unfortunately, it did not help.  On the Federal Information Worksheet, I checked that the spouse could not be claimed as a dependent on another taxpayer's return.  This had been done before the first attempt at e-filed.  I e-filed the returns again and received the same rejection code.

Thanks for trying.

You have to check the box " can spouse be claimed as a dependent of another person" YES

Even if they can't be claimed as a dependent by someone else?
