 I have not received my W-2, I need to notify IRS. My employer is ignoring my requests. WHAT DO I DO?

Q) I have not received my W-2 from my previous employer. I contacted the home office via email mid February. Last week all I received was a copy of the health insurance coverage I paid. I have called the IRS 800-829-1040 number multiple times with long waiting and never about to speak to anyone. I attempted to request a filing transcript but was unable to successfully complete the registration process AND the IRS website doesn’t have the appropriate link I need to notify IRS that my employer is ignoring my requests for W-2 and to request assistance. WHAT DO I DO?

A) According to the IRS, if you have not received your w-2, 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.




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:

• Your employer’s name, address and phone number;
• Your employment dates; and
• 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.

File your return on time. You should still file your tax return on or before April 15, 2013, 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.

  1. According to the IRS – Some tax returns take longer to process than others for many reasons, including when a return:

    Includes errors
    Is incomplete
    Is affected by identity theft or fraud
    Includes a claim filed for an Earned Income Tax Credit or an Additional Child Tax Credit. See Q&A below.
    Includes a Form 8379, Injured Spouse Allocation, which could take up to 14 weeks to process
