In fact, you want to make sure SS got it right. I know they had a couple of years wrong for DH.
But I am not self employed... I am not employed at all...
With that being said, I filed many months ago... and my account is not updated... so again, I do not think that is the trigger...
Then again, maybe the IRS does not report anything for 8 or 9 months... so it does not matter when you file...
