Wrong SSN on W-2 Form but already sent in E-File.

I just finished filing and sent it in via TurboTax, but noticed the W2 had my wrong SSN. I asked my employer to check if they had the right SSN that was sent in, but it is incorrect.


What will happen?

Your employer needs to send in a corrected W-2 (W-2c) to the IRS and SSA because that income has not been reported as earned by you.  Since you have already filed your return, you shouldn't need to do anything else unless contacted by the IRS.
