My wife and I both need to apply for replacement Social Security cards – ours are misplaced or lost?

Tax_questionQ) My wife and I both need to apply for replacement Social Security cards – ours are misplaced or lost?

I also need to get my 2013 IRS W2 posted. I have a copy from my employer for the SSA.

How do we go about accomplishing both of these tasks? Thanks!

A) According to the Social Security Administration: You can get an original Social Security card or a replacement card if yours is lost or stolen. There is no charge for a Social Security card. This service is free.

You can use a my Social Security account to request a replacement Social Security card online if you:

Are a U.S. citizen age 18 years or older with a U.S. mailing address;
Are not requesting a name change or any other change to your card; and
Have a valid driver’s license or a state-issued identification card from one of the following:
District of Columbia (driver’s license only);
Iowa;
Kentucky;
Michigan;
Nebraska;
Washington; or
Wisconsin (driver’s license only).
If you cannot apply for a card online, you will need to:
Show the required documents. We need to see different documents depending on your citizenship and the type of card you are requesting. See Learn What Documents You Need to find out what documents you will have to show.
Fill out and print an Application for a Social Security Card; and
Take or mail your application and documents to your local Social Security office.
For complete instructions, please go to New or Replacement Social Security Number and Card.https://faq.ssa.gov/ics/support/kbanswer.asp?QuestionID=3755

  1. Because the IRS processes the first return it receives, if another person claims your dependent first, the IRS will reject your return. The IRS won’t tell you who claimed your dependent. But if you don’t suspect anyone who could have claimed the dependent, your dependent may be a victim of tax identity theft. You’ll need to take some steps to protect your right to claim the dependent and your refund if you don’t think that the other person was eligible to claim your dependent. First, double check that you meet all of the requirements to claim the dependent.

    The IRS may delay your refund while the IRS looks into the issue, but you should still receive your refund. File a paper return. Note that when you file a paper return, it can take six to eight weeks for the IRS to process. This includes things like birth certificates and proof of identity, but also documents that show that your dependent lived with you at the same address for more than half of the year. This doesn’t mean that you can’t correct the situation. Don’t panic. The most important thing to remember is to prove with proper documentation that you are entitled to claim the dependent. Document your case as the IRS rules for claiming a dependent can get complicated.
