  1. We just filed our 2013 early February. Tried to file 2014 yesterday and was rejected because they cannot find our agi. We tried the pin number and even put the 0 like it said. Still was rejected. Is this because 2013 has not yet been processed? How then can we e file 2014 now? Both will get refunds. Need this info in the system asap due to college financial aid. Is there another way?

    1. Hi Peggy,
      Yes, your 2013 would need to be processed and in the IRS system. You also would not see your 2014 tax refunds until the IRS processes your 2013 taxes. You can file your 2014 as soon as possible and mail it in.
      Thank you,
