Changing you Maiden Name – IRS, Social Security Purposes
Name Changes & Social Security Number Matching Issues
Do I need to change my maiden name to my married name on my Social Security card for us to file jointly?
You can still file “Married Filing Jointly” without changing your name with the Social Security Administration.
Make sure that the name shown on your Social Security card matches the name you use on your tax return.
If you haven’t changed your name with the Social Security Administration you will need to show your maiden name on the tax return instead of your married name.
For information on changing a name on your Social Security card due to marriage, contact the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) or visit the Social Security Administration website.
