Error Code F2441-526: Form 2441, Part II, Line 2(b), each 'QualifyingPersonSSN' provided must not be the same as a 'QualifyingPersonSSN' in Part II, Line 2 of Form 2441 in another accepted tax return for the same tax year.

The qualifying person (based on their entered SSN) has already been claimed for the Form 2441 credit on another tax return; therefore, they cannot be claimed again for the same credit. In this situation, verify that the correct SSN has been entered on Screen Cr, located under the Credits folder. If the SSN is incorrect, you can enter the correct one and then recreate and resubmit the electronic file.  If the SSN is indeed correct, you will need to contact the IRS and paper file the return. Refer to Form 8948 - Paper Filing Exceptions.
