Hi, my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with your questions. Did you receive a notice on the return. The easiest way to correct the error is to contact the IRS. The representative will ask you to verify information associated with the return and the dependent.

received notice for 2014, but would like to correct information before receiving a notice for 2015

If you call the IRS, the representative should be able to correct the Social Security number over the phone. They will ask additional questions relating to the dependent (date of birth).
