If I file electronically (e-filing), what do I do with my W-2 forms?

Tax_questionQ) If I file electronically (e-filing), what do I do with my W-2 forms?

A) According to the IRS – You will use the information from your Form W-2 (PDF) to complete your tax return. After filing you should retain a copy of the form for your records. When filing electronically:

  • You must provide a copy of the Form W-2 to the authorized IRS e-file provider before the provider sends the electronic return to the IRS.
  • You do not need to send your W-2 forms to the IRS and should keep them in a safe place with a copy of your tax return.
  • Use Form 8453 (PDF), U.S. Individual Income Tax Transmittal for an IRS e-File Return, to submit any paper documents that need to be sent after your return has been accepted electronically.  Do not use this form to send your W-2 forms.

For general information about e-file, refer to Return Preparation and Filing Options.

  1. THE IRS “GET MY PAYMENT” WEBSITE KEEPS GIVING ME ERROR MESSAGES! Do you or your colleagues have any insights re the IRS “GET MY PAYMENT” website? I SUCCESSFULLY entered my DOB, street address and Zip Code into “GET MY PAYMENT”. However, this time it REJECTED my 9-digit SSN which I entered as: xxxxx6892. Note that the above St. ADDR. / ZIP is a temporary address for an AZ cancer clinic where I’m currently being treated. Also, note that I successfully received my previous two stimulus checks via DD using the above information (bank’s routing / acct numbers haven’t changed). I called the IRS, IRS Fiscal Services Bureau and the Treasury Dept., and all I got were referrals back to IRS.GOV which directed me to contact my local IRS. Thanks for your help.
