Error Code IND-689-01: The year of the 'PrimarySignatureDt' in the Return Header must be equal to the processing year.

Change the Signature date on Screen PIN, located in the Electronic Filing folder, to the year transmitted.

For example, the taxpayer(s) signed the return in December while the IRS Modernized e-File (MeF) system was down for maintenance. When transmitting in January or February of the following year, the December date will be rejected by the IRS with rejection code IND-689-01. Enter the January or February date in the year the electronic file is transmitted in the Signature date field in Screen PIN. Then, re-create and retransmit the electronic file.
