    Default Questions with scanner print multiple at once

    Ok so my program is call TaxPayer, it takes information like social security, name, income, etc. I decided i wanted to get a user input, and my first idea isnt working quite right.

    When i run the program it asks social security just fine, but then it prints both last and first name at once, i tried making the scan.nextLine be scan.next instead, it solved the first problem but still does it for addresses and state. Did i mess something up?

    System.out.println("Enter your social security number");
            socialIn=scan.nextInt();
            System.out.println("Enter last name");
            lastNmIn=scan.nextLine();
            System.out.println("Enter your first name");
            firstNmIn=scan.nextLine();
            System.out.println("Enter your first address");
            address1In=scan.nextLine();
            System.out.println("Enter your second address (or enter blank)");
            address2In=scan.nextLine();
            System.out.println("Enter city");
            cityIn=scan.nextLine();
            System.out.println("Enter state");
            stateIn=scan.next();
            System.out.println("Enter zip code");
            zipIn=scan.nextInt();
            System.out.println("Enter income");
            incomeIn=scan.nextDouble();
            System.out.println("Enter marital status (S: Single M: Maried D: Divorced");
            maritalIn=scan.next().charAt(0);

    There is an issue with mixing the use of the Scanner class's next... and nextLine methods. This site discusses it:

    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
