I spoke too soon … although they DO report your info for you to the IRS  once you update your SSN, they do not however take care of your tax ID. I just spent 2 hours on hold for the rep to tell me the address where you request the name change plus a copy of your license and marriage certificate . Now, since I just spent 2 hours on hold for the address- I figured I’d post it below for any bees who also own a business and need to update their EIN. All you have to do is a send a letter requesting it(no notary) and send the copies of your name change

Once you start the process, how long does it usually take to get your name change finalized?

I usually do not respond to older posts as the issue should have been solved in the last 4 months. But word of warning- don’t forget to sign the passport application. Mine bounced back yesterday and I feel pretty dumb. Other than that changing the name was easy. SS card, DMV, work, bank accounts, and university was done very quickly.

foxy16sh:  Depends where you live and what you need. For me- SS card- 7 business days. Drivers License- 7 business days. Work- 2 minutes. University- 2 minutes. Bank- 10 business days for all new cards. Passport- it would have taken 6 weeks if I signed the original, my mistake
