Will my name change be a problem?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am starting to prepare to send away my husband's ROC packet (we cannot send it until mid-late June but I want to have everything ready when the time comes :blush: ). However, I didn't change my name right after we got married because I was still attending school and, quite frankly, didn't want to deal with the mess. We did joint filing for both 2008 and 2009 taxes, but I used my maiden name on the 2008 return. I also have some bills and such with my maiden names, and others with my married name. Is this an issue? Do I need to have anything in the packet explaining this?

Thanks so much VJers!

I would maybe just explain it on either a separate sheet of paper.

Just on a little sidenote: If you have filled out the form already in advance, check and make sure it is not outdated by the time you send it.

Happened to me when I wanted to be all done ahead of time. They didn't reject my application but it definitley got me nervous.wink.gif

Thanks for your information! I haven't even began working on the forms yet. I'll probably save that until late May/early June. I just decided I didn't want to wait until the last minute to try and dig all of the evidence up. :) I just requested the last two years of tax transcripts today, and I just called and am getting a confirmation of coverage from the health insurance provider that will show both of us having the same ID number. I need to call our old apartment and see if they have a copy of our old lease by chance. I can't find ours! :huh:
