    Default W-2's and Name Change from Marriage

    I worked a second job for a very short time at the begining of this year (only 1 paycheck). Do I need to contact that company and give them my new married name or can I use the W2 that they send in my maiden name?

    If you wish to receive the W-2 in your married name, contact HR for the employer and ask if they'll update their records. One way or the other, your SSN is the same so the IRS will figure it out.

    Make sure you change your name with social security.

    Thanks for your responses. I have already changed my name and received my new card with my married name. I guess that is why I was concerned with the fact that I will have one W2 with my maiden name. I guess the IRS should have record of my maiden name under my social since this will be the first year that I am filing under my married name. Again, Thanks!
