Received incorrect info from SSA-1099s for my wife and me.

I contacted my local Social Security office and they are sending out corrected SSA-1099s for my wife and me.  Since I have not filed my tax return, yet, do I just enter the corrected info, from the corrected SSA-1099s, into turbotax?  Will I still be able to efile? 

Also, I am assuming that the IRS will receive the corrected info, too.  So is there anything else I have to do before efiling our return to ensure that the IRS will have the same info as reported on our return?

When you receive the corrected form SSA-1099, you just enter the corrected form on your tax return. You will be able to e-file normally.

 

The Social Security Administration will send the corrected form to the IRS.

Wait for the corrected documents.  The IRS is not accepting 2020 returns until February 12.  The filing deadline is not until April 15.   Why not wait and avoid the confusion that may be caused by using incorrect amounts.
