Problems With Your W-2 Forms
Your W-2 Form reports the amount of wages you were paid during the year and
the amounts withheld for state and federal income taxes. Employers must provide
employees a W-2 Form by Jan. 31st. Even if you do not receive your W-2 Form,
you must still file your return on time.
If your W-2 Form is not legible or if you have lost it, contact your employer
and request another.
If you have not received your W-2 Form, and it is after January 31st,
contact your employer to find out if or when it was mailed.
If the W-2 Form was returned to the employer due to incorrect address or
was not yet issued, allow at least three weeks for the employer to remail or
the W-2 Form. Then, if you still do not receive your W-2 Form, contact the Department toll-free at 1-877-252-3052 for assistance. When you call, you will
need to provide the following information so we may contact your employer.
- Your employer's name and complete address, employer identification number
(if known), and telephone number.
- Your name, address, social security number, and telephone number.
We will mail you a copy of our letter to the employer along with
an Employee's Substitute W-2, Form Sub W-2. If you still do not
receive your W-2 Form, complete Form Sub W-2 to meet the deadline
for filing your return. If you file Form Sub W-2, attach copies
of payroll check stubs or other supporting information. Your refund
may be delayed while the information you provided is verified.
If you receive a W-2 Form after you file your return or if you receive a corrected
W-2 Form that does not agree with the income or tax withheld you reported on
your return, you must file an amended return.
