I need my tax forms!
February 20, 2023
A) If you need your tax forms, there are a few different ways you can obtain them depending on the type of form you need:
- W-2: If you are an employee and need a W-2 form, your employer is required to provide you with a copy. Typically, your employer will provide you with a copy of your W-2 form by January 31st. If you have not received a copy, reach out to your employer to request one.
- 1099: If you are a freelancer or independent contractor and need a 1099 form, the person or company that paid you is required to provide you with a copy. If you have not received a copy, reach out to the person or company to request one.
- 1040: If you need a copy of your personal tax return (Form 1040), you can obtain a copy from the IRS. You can request a transcript of your tax return by visiting the IRS website, calling the IRS at 1-800-829-1040, or by mailing Form 4506-T to the IRS.
- Other forms: If you need a copy of any other tax forms, you can obtain them from the IRS website, by calling the IRS at 1-800-829-3676, or by visiting your local IRS office.
It’s important to keep in mind that some tax forms may not be available until a certain date, and that you may need to wait to receive your forms before filing your taxes.
