My ss# is wrong on my w2 by one number what do I do?

The best course of action is to request a corrected W-2 from your employer as soon as possible. If it's listed incorrectly it could lead to an examination of your return by the IRS due to the social security mismatch. 

"If by the end of February, your attempts to have the Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, corrected by your employer are unsuccessful, you can request that an IRS representative initiate a Form W-2 complaint."

Here's a link to the IRS website with more information about W-2 replacementhttps://www.irs.gov/faqs/irs-procedures/w-2-additional-incorrect-lost-non-receipt-omitted/w-2-additi...

Please see FAQ, with more information if your W-2 is not received by February: https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3301808
