State tax return with wrong social security number e-filed how long to wait for a rejection from NJ so that I can correct it and resend?

Most states (CA being one...) don't cross reference social security numbers.  

That's an IRS --> Social Security Admin function.

You should still (probably?) amend the NJ return to correct the issue, but I doubt the return is going to be rejected.  But them there right coast states do things differently. 😀

My thinking is that it will be rejected.  Not because NJ cross-check the SSN but because NJ is a piggyback state (unlike CA, which is a Standalone) that must pass through the IRS and the IRS should catch the mismatch.

Was the Federal return accepted?
