Taxpayer TIN in the return header must not be the same as a TIN of a previously accepted electronic return for the return type, and tax period indicated in the tax return.
To resolve e-file rejection code R0000-902-01, review the suggestions below:
- Confirm the Social Security numbers in the return match the Social Security card.
- If the taxpayer or spouse e-filed their return using a different preparer or software for the current tax year, you can't e-file this tax return for the current tax year, you must paper-file.
- If unable to determine a cause for the reject code, call the IRS E-File Help Desk at 866-255-0654 for more information, or file the return via US Mail to the appropriate IRS Service Center.
- The IRS receives the Social Security number from the Social Security Administration. If, after making sure the Social Security number you feel this was received in error, contact the Social Security Administration at 800-772-1213.
