Will getting your last name changed effect your taxes being accepted

Your name change will not cause the IRS to reject your tax return as long as use the name that is currently listed on your social security card. The IRS matches the social security database information to what is reported on your tax return. It doesn't matter if another name is listed on your W-2 forms, you should put your current name on your tax return.
