Newlyweds and the recently divorced need to make sure names on their tax returns match those registered with the Social Security Administration. A mismatch could unexpectedly increase a tax bill or reduce the size of any refund.
For newlyweds, the tax scenario begins when "I dos" are exchanged. If a bride takes her husband's name, but doesn't tell the SSA about it, IRS computers will not be able to match the new name with her Social Security number, making the bureaucrats grumpy.
Similarly, after a divorce, a woman who had taken her husband's name and had made that change known to the SSA should contact the SSA if she reassumes a previous name.
