You wouldnt amend for a wrong SSN, since NO original was filed for that SSN.

Id wait for IRS correspondence on how to proceed.

Should not that return have been rejected by the IRS since the social security number did not match the name?

You would think so, but maybe they sent it in on paper?

@Just-Lisa-Now- could be and if that is the case that would mean the return was never ever filed , I.E. it was rejected...

Could it have been rejected and my computer did not catch it? I've had no other problems with the other returns sent in that batch (so far).   But I have have had other glitches.

Has anyone else had program problems?

This has been such a hard year.

 I do think you both are right and I'll proceed that way.

I'll let you know! Thank You!!!

I thought so too.  But it was accepted!

Thank-You for answering!  Your remark, also helped made me feel better.

Was the SSN wrong because of incorrect or transposed digits?  Or because it belongs to another family member?  My understanding is that IRS only verifies with the first four letters of the last name.
