16119: E-filing Rejects - Birth Date, Death Date, or Age Match


Rejects + EF Messages

I am getting a reject that says the Birth Date or Death Date must match the e-file database or that says that one of the individuals is not the correct age. I have checked data entry and the correct date and age show. How do I resolve this reject?

The IRS e-file database is based on the Social Security Administration database for names, social security numbers, birth dates, and death dates. There are several different rejects that are related to the taxpayer/spouse/dependent Name, SSN, Age, Date of Birth, and Date of death (if applicable). If you receive one of these rejects, confirm that all data entered on the return is correct. 

If any changes are needed for the taxpayer or spouse, they can be made within data entry of the return on screen 1 - Name and Address (taxpayer/spouse) or screen 2 - Dependents (children or other dependents).

If the SSNs and dates are accurate, there may be an error in the Social Security Administration's (SSA) records. To correct any errors that may be present, the taxpayer can contact the SSA at 1-800-772-1213. Generally, the return will need to be paper-filed.

The following table lists some of the common rejects that result from a mismatch between the return entries and the SSA database:
