Error Code R0000-905-01: Electronic Filing Identification Number (EFIN) in the Return Header must be listed in the e-File database and in accepted status.

When a return is rejected with this error, the business rule generally indicates a registration problem with the IRS e-file program.

Verify that you correctly entered your Electronic Filer Identification Number (EFIN) in the Setup > Office Configuration > E-Filing tab. If your firm uses one EFIN, enter that EFIN in the provided field. If your firm uses multiple EFINs, click the Preparers tab, edit the preparer assigned to the rejected return, and verify the EFIN entered.

Note: In conjunction with this error, you may also receive IRS Letter 5903. If you did receive Letter 5903, follow the instructions on the IRS website to re-activate your e-Services account. If you correctly entered your EFIN and did not receive Letter 5903, call the IRS e-file help line at 1-866-255-0654 to find out the status of your EFIN.
