    If you filed electronically using a service, there may be some flags in the software alerting you to the issue or error. Double check the SSN/EIN, legal name or legal entity name. These are common errors that bounce back and reject the return. It may also be possible your tax return was rejected due to someone fraudulently filing a return with your SSN. If this is the case, you might be required to print and mail your corrected return. You may contact the IRS to verify what the reject is due to, and an IRS agent should be able to assist you.
