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

The IRS receives this information from the Social Security Administration. Contact the Social Security Administration (SSA) at(###) ###-####between the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday, to verify that their records are accurate. If SSA records need to be corrected, it can take up to four weeks to transfer the updated information to the IRS.

You can either wait four weeks and then try to re-efile your return or you can mail it to the IRS now.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
