Does it matter who is listed first?

We used to file with a CPA and he always listed my husband first, but this year we had to do it ourselves and I'm the one that did it online and listed myself first without realizing. Is it a problem?

No, the order of the names isn’t important to the IRS.  However, once you choose the order it is best to keep it the same from year to year.  We recommend you keep the same TurboTax Online account from year to year as well
