How do I correct IRS Reject IND-046 or F1040-164-01?
IRS Reject states:
Form 8862 must be present in the return. e-File database indicates the taxpayer must file Form 8862 to Claim Earned Income Credit after disallowance.
Make the required entries on Screen 8862, recalculate, and re-transmit the return.
If you think the taxpayer has not had EIC disallowed previously and the reject is in error, have the taxpayer contact IRS for more information about the rejection at 1 (800) 829-1040.
