FreeTaxUSA doesn't let me validate AGI for me and spouse

DoneWing Member Posts: 1 Newcomer

We filed jointly for 2022, where I had SSN, but spouse had ITIN. This year we both have SSNs, and IRS is returning e-file because last year's AGI doesn't match.

If I put last year AGI it says it doesn't match my spouse.

If I put 0, it says it doesn't match mine.

How can I make it so that FreeTaxUSA allows me to set the right AGI for both?

It should be last year's AGI for me, and zero for spouse, but the website only lets me put 1 number

    Hi DoneWing,

    There is a way to still get your return e-filed. The Prior Year AGI is connected to a Tax Identification Number (either a SSN or an ITIN). When you change from an ITIN to a SSN, the IRS will expect $0 for the AGI in this situation. What you need to do is answer the questions that you filed separately last year, enter your AGI for yourself and $0 for your spouse who changed from an ITIN to a SSN. That should work.
