Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

Yes, it is. You have 3 years to change or report your self-employment income. After statute of limitation is over you can only report or correct W2 income with a hard copy of W2.

There are some exceptions to the rules but they are not very clear. Here they are: https://www.ssa.gov/OP_Home%2Fhandbook/handbook.14/handbook-1424.html
