Bad timing building & changing to 1099. Over the years we have "side-stepped" the issue this way. Our business was an S-Corp. Salaries were paid, employment taxes paid, quarterly reports filed and income reported on a W-2. Never had a problem obtaining mortgages. If their is additional profit, it fl...

Probably a good idea. If she is using the married name; be sure to do a name change with Social Security before taxes are filed with the married name. We had three young couples with W-2s in married name but had not changed the last name with SS, causing an initial rejection for e-file....

BS - They should file a W-2C - file the return with the numbers you believe are correct and wait for the IRS correspondence that will come - don't let the IRS intimidate you (their best ploy) - prepare now so you can respond promptly with an explanation & documentation supporting your position - if ...
