IND-031

This code states that the prior year information (Adjusted Gross Income or PIN number) for the Primary Taxpayer does not match IRS records. If you filed a return for the previous year that was accepted prior to October 15th (no matter where you filed) go back through the e-file process until you reach the "IRS PIN" screen that is requesting your current and last year information. Under the "Last Year Information" section, select "Yes" followed by selecting the "Click Here" link to obtain an IRS issued e-file signature pin. This will open a new window to the IRS website to retrieve the new pin. Once you receive the IRS issued PIN, you can now enter the IRS issued PIN in the appropriate field in your TaxSlayer account and continue through the e-file process until completed. Do not forget that you are required to also enter a 5-digit PIN in the "Current Year Information" which can be any 5 numerical digits that you wish. If you did not successfully e-file last year (no matter who the provider was) or filed a return after October 15th, you will be unable to retrieve an Alternate PIN from the IRS which means that you will need to answer "No" to having filed a return in the previous year and we will automatically use $0 as your Prior Year AGI. You will still be required to create a new PIN for the "Current Year Information" area and then complete the e-file steps to resubmit your return.

IND-032

Under the "Last Year Information" section, select "Yes" followed by selecting the "Click Here" link to obtain an IRS issued e-file signature pin for the spouse. This will open a new window to the IRS website to retrieve the new pin. Once you receive the IRS issued PIN for the spouse, you can now enter the IRS issued PIN in the appropriate field in your TaxSlayer account and continue through the e-file process until completed. Do not forget that you are required to also enter a 5-digit PIN in the "Current Year Information" for the spouse which can be any 5 numerical digits that you wish. If your spouse did not successfully e-file last year (no matter who the provider was) or filed a return after October 15th, they will be unable to retrieve an Alternate PIN from the IRS which means that you will need to answer "No" to having filed a return in the previous year and we will automatically use $0 as their Prior Year AGI.
