I am trying to efile my personal return but it keeps getting a fatal error because my ssn and ein (preparer) match.  How can I fix this?

So the ERO Id# is the same i guess.?

Go online and get an ein..only takes about 10 minutes, Then you don't have your SSN printing our on 

all the other returns you do.

I did that but because I use my ssn as my firm ein, it still kicks it out because the ero ein =spouse ssn (that's me)
