R0000-902-01 SSN already used

 Unfortunately, your e-file was rejected by the IRS because your Social Security Number or Tax Payer Identification Number has already been used to e-file a tax return this year.

What you can do to fix this rejection

First, verify your information is correct

Login to the tax software you used to file your return and ensure your SSN is correct. You can make any required corrections and retransmit your return.

If the information you entered is correct, call the Social Security Administration (SSA) at 1-800-772-1213 to verify your Social Security number, date of birth, and name. If the information from the SSA differs from what you entered, log back in to make the corrections and retransmit as described above.

Other Options

If your SSN is correct, then it is possible you have been the victim of identity theft and need to act immediately.

First, print and mail your return as any e-file attempts will continue to be rejected by the IRS. 

Second, call the IRS identity theft hotline at 1-800-908-4490 and see http://www.irs.gov/uac/Taxpayer-Guide-to-Identity-Theft for more information.
