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.
