Ravenne:  Time to call the IRS


<h1>Missing Your W-2? Here’s What to Do</h1>


It’s a good idea to have all your tax documents together before preparing your 2013 tax return. You will need your W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, which employers should send by the end of January. Give it two weeks to arrive by mail.

If you have not received your W-2, follow these three steps:

    <li class=”first-child”>Contact your employer first.  Ask your employer – or former employer – to send your W-2 if it has not already been sent. Make sure your employer has your correct address.<br />

  1. Contact the IRS. After February 14, you may call the IRS at 800-829-1040 if you have not yet received your W-2. Be prepared to provide your name, address, Social Security number and phone number. You should also have the following information when you call:<br /> <br /> • Your employer’s name, address and phone number;<br /> • Your employment dates; and<br /> • An estimate of your wages and federal income tax withheld in 2012, based upon your final pay stub or leave-and-earnings statement, if available.<br />
  2. <li class=”last-child”>File your return on time. You should still file your tax return on or before April 15, 2014, even if you have not yet received your W-2. File Form 4852, Substitute for Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, in place of the W-2. Use the form to estimate your income and withholding taxes as accurately as possible. The IRS may delay processing your return while it verifies your information.<br /> <br /> If you need more time to file you can get a six-month extension of time. File Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File US Individual Income Tax Return.  If you are requesting an extension, you must file this form on or before April 15, 2014.

If you receive the missing W-2 after filing your tax return and the information on the W-2 is different from what you reported using Form 4852, then you must correct your tax return. File Form 1040X, Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return to amend your tax return.

Forms and instructions are available at or by calling 800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676).

Ravenne:  Whaaa…??? How long did you work for him? What if he’s not taking taxes out? How come you never saw a paycheck? You’re being way too nice. Per the LAW he had to have those out to his employees mailed no later than 1-31. He’s in major violation of that. Do you have your taxes from last year? You can use the EIN to maybe help you do your taxes. Not sure how that works, but it can with TurboTax or your tax guy. Ask your tax guy!! When I did TurboTax I didn’t even have to enter my W2. I entered my SS# and it pulled in all my info. I’m in payroll, by the way, so something is definitely scarily wacked with that guy.

Ravenne: After contacting the IRS,  I guess all you can do is file declaring your income , of which you do have a record from the deposit slips.  As a pp has said, if he deducted income tax and credited it  to the proper account, they will be able to tell you have much tax has been paid on your behalf. Leson learned, I hope. Employees should never voluntarily be part of anything  like this.
