Congratulations if you recently updated your status from single to married, but you should be aware that marriage also brings about some changes with your income taxes. Here are several tips for newlyweds from the IRS:
● Notify the Social Security Administration. It’s important that your name and Social Security number match on your next tax return; so if you’ve taken a new name, report the change to the Social Security Administration. Your Social Security number is the key to your tax filings. If you do not reconcile your name and tax ID number, your return could be rejected because of the mismatch. File form SS-5, Application for a Social Security Card. The form is available on SSA’s website at www.ssa.gov, by calling 800-772-1213, or visiting a local SSA office.
