Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

The IRS instructions are:

"If you are filing a current year return, mark the appropriate name change box of the Form 1120 type you are using:

  • Form 1120: Page 1, Line E, Box 3
  • Form 1120S: Page 1, Line H, Box 2

If you have already filed your return for the current year, write to us at the address where you filed your return to inform us of the name change. In addition:

  • The notification must be signed by a corporate officer."

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb

Is there a form or just letter? If it was changed three years ago. Do we need to tell them?

Yes.

Send them a letter stating the name change and when it took place.

It appears as if the IRS missed it if you noted it on the tax return.
