The IRS now has a website that allows employers to verify social security numbers and match them to the correct names. The announcement from the IRS with links is below:
"Use the Social Security Number Verification Service to verify your employee names and SSNs match Social Security's records. "
This should be a nice feature for small business owners that need a fast way to accomplish this with new employees.
