If you filed electronically - your tax return would likely be rejected on the next day because the IRS computer match SSN and names on the return.

If you mail your return - information will be entered into computer and the mistake will be catched. The IRS would likely contact you via mail.

You may contact the IRS calling 1-800-829 - 1040 to inform about your mistake and verify if your return already in the system.

You may resubmit your return with corrected information. Add a statement about your mistake.
