If you entered a zero in the AGI entry field or left it blank, and did not check 2020 AGI was 0 during the e-filing steps, you will receive this Red Alert:

Error or Omission: Incomplete Self Select Information Taxpayer

You have indicated you wish to file a paperless return; however, the taxpayer's 2020 Adjusted Gross Income, 2020 PIN has not been entered.

The screen will provide the taxpayer's name and ask you to complete at least one of the following:

  • Enter your original 2020 Adjusted Gross Income amount (before any amendments).
  • Check the box if you are intentionally entering 2019 Adjusted Gross Income as zero.
  • Enter your 2020 Personal Identification Number (PIN).

If the IRS has confirmed that entering a 0 for your AGI amount is correct, or that you did not file a 2020 income tax return, or you mailed your return to the IRS late (especially after November or December of 2021), you must check the box on the alerts screen.
