Hey, I can't fit my last name in the box (it says only up to 20 characters is allowed). My last name is more than 20 characters; what can I do?

Just enter as many letters as you can and leave off any letters at the end that don't fit.   The IRS matches the SSN with only the first few letters of the name.
