My opinion is this will not matter.  The IRS matches the first 4 letters of your last name and the last 4 digits of your social security number.  You should not have an issue since your last name is correct.

I would think so.  When e-filing a tax return, the IRS verifies the first few digits of the last name, the Social Security number and the date of birth.
