Error Reject Code F1040A-510: If Form 1040, Line 6a checkbox 'ExemptPrimaryInd' is checked, then Primary SSN in the Return Header must not be the same as a'DependentSSN' on another tax return.

Here is a situation where the taxpayer and/or spouse was claimed as a dependent on another tax return.

Determine if the dependent submitted their own return and failed to indicate that they can be claimed on another return. If the data entered is incorrect, make the corrections and retransmit the return.

For dependents that submitted their own return and claimed their exemption, remove the dependent from the parent's return and resubmit. If the parents should have claimed the exemption, they must file a paper return. The dependent's return will have to be amended.

If you are the tax professional, contact the IRS e-help Desk at 866.255.0654 for assistance in determining which individual was claimed on another return. If you are the taxpayer, contact the IRS Accounts Management at 800.829.0922 for assistance.
