IND 996 is saying the IP PIN is invalid.  Youre using the IP PIN that was received in Jan 2020, right?  Make sure you have the right IP assigned to the right Dependent

I DID, THIS IS WHAT THE IRS SAYS:

: As of January 1, 2016, if you claim one or more dependents that have an IP PIN, you must enter their IP PIN on the following e-File tax forms:

  • Form 1040, Individual Income Tax Return, series
  • Form 2441, Child and Dependent Care Expenses
  • Schedule Earned Income Credit

Your e-File return will be rejected if you fail to enter a dependent’s IP PIN.

And your original question said you entered the IPPin on the dependent worksheet which should make it go where it needs to go.

The 996 error means it Invalid...are you using the one issued in 2019 instead of the newly issued one in Jan 2020?

I received the same rejection code.  The taxpayer never applied or asked for an IP PIN for

their dependent, nor did they have a reason to. Does anyone know of a reason this rejection code would happen.  the dependent is her 79 year old mother.

someone may have attempted ID theft and IRS issued a IPPIN for the mother. Heres your options to find it, or paper file.

Would an IP PIN be issued without notifying the person or without them asking?
