Odd e-file error

Recommended Posts

I received the e-file reject below...using same client dependent info as always...verified that name and SSN are correct.  Could this error happen if client's ex already filed claiming this child for EIC?

Each 'QualifyingChildNameControlTxt' that has a value on Schedule EIC(Form 1040A or 1040), Line 1, and 'QualifyingChildSSN' that has a value on Line 2, must match that in the e-File database.

/efile:Return/efile:ReturnData/efile:IRS1040ScheduleEIC[1]/efile:QualifyingChildInformation[1]/efile:QualifyingChildSSN

If there's a glitch in the IRS database for that child's name, you'll have to paper file.

I had a trust I couldn't efile for years because the name control was wrong in the IRS database. I kept transmitting it every year and finally one year it went through.

It went through last year just fine...and this is the only error...strictly EIC related...nothing on the 1040

This occurs when you try to claim the Earned Income Credit (EIC) for a child on your return, but someone else has already claimed the EIC for that child on a different return.

Weird, because there is nothing in the message that says or implies that it has anything to do with claiming EIC
