Why was my return rejected for a form type mismatch?

The IRS rejected your return because you selected the incorrect type of form that you typically use to file your taxes. When e-filing a tax extension, the IRS requires you to choose the correct type of form that you regularly use to file your income tax returns. You can verify your type of form with a prior year income tax return. If you are still unsure, we recommend contacting the IRS directly on their tax hotline.
