@BetterSherm:  I was not aware that you need to change it with the IRS. As far as I know you just change it with the SS Administration and your employer so your SS info and W2 info match. I’m looking into it right now.

Really those name change kits are a rip off in my opinion. Everything can be done on your own for free, and now with the internet it is even easier.

@BetterSherm:  Well the IRS says the name change is updated automatically from the SSA. I think the person at the SS office doesn’t know what they’re talking about. What is this form that you have? Does it have a form number?

@BetterSherm:  That doesn’t matter. You just need your SS card, W2 info, and tax return to match in regards to name. Which filing status you choose (joint or married filing separately) is a totally different issue.

@BetterSherm:  Okay, it just says its a change of address form (see where it says “purpose of this form”). I’m not sure why anyone would need it, unless perhaps if you receive a lot of correspondence from them, say because you owe taxes and are making payments, or you are self-employed so you make your own tax payments. Its not a name change form.

@BetterSherm:  Sorry, I mistyped. Yes, it is a change of address form. You don’t need it. The kit probably has it because they want to give the kit more substance so you feel like you got more for your money.
