Well that must be it. Our last names are the same, but we always had problems coordinating between IRS and SSA. When spouse applied for replacement SSA card, they forced her to use FOUR names (First, Middle, Maiden-Married) and no longer matched IRS data. Thanks
Edit to Add:
We've been married about a hundred years (well, it seems that long) but spouse
never notified Soc Sec of her married name. This was no big deal except for electronic filing and SSA did not send her account statement automatically, and I guess the stimulus check glitch.
