I had a name change in 2017. Do I use my previous name for my 2016 taxes? How do I update the info my tax return is sent to my current name? Thanks!

You use whatever name is currently on record with the social security administration. You don't make any changes to documents you receive that have your former name. The IRS will match these up based on your social security number.
