Federal Reject Code F1040-065-01
The IRS is stating that you currently have no income listed in an area/line of the return that is necessary for them to process the return electronically. Some people are not required to file returns when this occurs, yet choose to so that the have a filed tax return on record for personal and/or legal reasons.
If you still want/need to file a federal tax return go into the Income section of the program and make a $1 entry in the Interest Income section of the program. To do this go to: Income > Interest and Dividend Income > Interest or Dividend Income - Begin > Interest Income Form 1099-INT, Continue > enter your name in the Payer's Name box and enter $1 in the Interest Income (Box 1) entry space. This will not affect the outcome of your return but will allow the IRS electronic scanners to 'read' the form and process the return for you. Once you complete these steps simply file the return again.
