State Rejection Code REJ001: "This state return was rejected because the federal taxing authority rejected the federal return"
Some customers' e-filed state tax returns were erroneously rejected with code REJ001 along with the message This state return was rejected because the federal taxing authority rejected the federal return even though their federal returns were either in Accepted or Pending status.
We are working on fixing the root cause of this issue so that future returns will not experience this rejection.
If your state tax return was rejected
We have notified all affected customers via e-mail that they should resubmit their state returns.
If you haven't already done so, you can resubmit by opening your tax return, clicking File, and following the on-screen instructions.
