How do I fix my name on my tax documents

You can change your name in TurboTax by going to the My info section of TurboTax and editing your personal info.

 

 

The IRS uses the social security database to match up names and social security numbers so when you change your name there, it also changes it at the IRS.

What papers are you referring to?  Are they ones you have printed out or viewing on your phone?  Did you upload the papers and the name did not upload correctly?  Post a reply to this thread for assistance in resolving your issue.

How do I fix my name on my tax documents

It was the papers I downloaded and printed off to mail to the places they need to go. My papers showed me it says Raina R Camping when it is supposed to say Raina R Campbell. I've tried everything I know to change my name on the papers, even in settings, but it doesn't seem to matter and stays the same.

If you mean that your Federal and state tax returns have the wrong name, follow these steps.

  • Click on My Info down the left side of the screen. 
  • Click Edit to the right of your name. 
  • Make sure that your name is spelled correctly.

Being in the US legal or not is not relevant on a tax return.

 

If you are a US citizen or US resident and your spouse does not have a Social Security number or an ITIN and you are not applying for an ITIN with the tax return then you can only file your tax return as Married Filing Separately.  Where asked to enter the spouse's Social Security number enter 999-88-9999.  You can only print and mail your tax return, it cannot be e-filed.  When you print the tax return erase the Social Security number for your spouse and manually enter NRA for non-resident alien.

See this TurboTax support FAQ for the procedure to print and mail a tax return using the online editions - https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1944348-how-do-i-print-and-mail-my-return-in-turbotax-online

The immigration status of your wife doesn't matter for the IRS. You can come back to your personal information section and change your status to Married Filing Separate, however you still will need your wife information if you live in one of Community property states. .
