For 7 years, I used to file our taxes by snail mail and I always used the IRS provided sticker on the top of 1040. This year I might take a shot at the IRS proposed free E-file. How should I report my Surname electronically? Must it match the IRS sticker?My "IRS" surname is made up of 4 letters of my maiden name + 4 letters of my DH's surname with a space in between. My SSN has my DH's last name.I have no idea what you mean by "IRS surname." Use the same name you've been using on your paper returns, assuming that hasn't caused any problems. With e-file you'll know within 48 hours whether there's a problem.If the name on your W-2 doesn't match the name on your Social Security card you need to get in touch with Social Security to make sure your earnings record is correct.Phil
