Step 3: Open & Fix Your Return
If you haven't already opened your rejected return, now's the time to do so.

Time-saving Tip: If what you originally entered is correct, you won't be able to e-file. There's probably a data mismatch at the government, a dependent that's already been claimed, or some other situation beyond your control that prevents your return from being e-filed.
In these cases, go ahead and file a paper return, rather than wasting your time trying to "fix" something you can't fix.
