My (adopted) dependent son, Joseph, was issued a new Social Security Number on 3/17/23 which also changed his name to my last name. How do I change it on Turbo Tax?

My son was issued a new SSN for safety reasons. He was adopted prior to 2023 but just got a new SSN. I don't know how to fix it in turbo tax?

You can edit your child's information in My Info.  Click his name and go through the screens to make changes.

As xmasbaby0 mentioned, you can change his name and social security number.

 

 Here's how you can correct them:

 

  1. Sign in to your Turbo Tax account.
     
  2. Navigate to and select the 'Personal Info' tab.
     
  3. Click 'Edit' next to his name and change his name and Social Security Number on the next screen.
