One of the questions we are asked most frequently is how do I get a copy of my W-2?
We sell blank W-2′s that employers purchase, complete, and send to their employees.
If you need your W-2 for 2010, first, you should contact your employer. If it is for an old tax year, you may contact the IRS:
Contact the IRS If you do not receive your W-2 by February 16th, contact the IRS for assistance at 800-829-1040. When you call, you must provide your name, address, city and state, including zip code, Social Security number, phone number and have the following information:
*Employer’s name, address, city and state, including zip code and phone number
*Dates of employment
*An estimate of the wages you earned, the federal income tax withheld, and when you worked for that employer during 2010. The estimate should be based on year-to-date information from your final pay stub or leave-and-earnings statement, if possible.
The W2 Copy 2 and Copy C instructions have changed on the back of these forms relating to the HIRE Act (tax credits for employers for new employees from March to December). Box 12-b has been added to the W3 forms for HIRE exempt wages and tips changes. Contact your software provider to obtain any updates you may need.
