By "IRS" surname I mean that the IRS made my name up for some reason. Maybe it occurred because one year after I married (no W-2 for me at the time, but I was in the process of changing my SSN card), I put my maiden name and my married name with a hyphen in between for myself .
So, the following year and years after the 1040 booklet would come with the provided 'new' name "EDIN BURG" on the sticker that I've always attached on our 1040 returns.

My W-2 match my SSN now. Maybe I'll try to use my last name from the W-2 electronically and see what happens.
