    Answered . However, you might not be able to go back and retro-actively change for prior years. Definitely this year as it isn't even April 15th yet. But I would talk to a preparer before you go amending any returns where you did not have an SSN on April 15th of the following year.

    Answered . If tax ID and SS# both lead back to your identity, is that not sufficient?
