Frequently Asked Question and Answers

What is Form W-2?

Form W-2 (officially called “Wage and Tax Statement”) is a form released by employers to the IRS and employees showing how much money was earned, what federal taxes were taken out of your paycheck, etc. The form is typically completed in January, but employers are allowed to provide the forms sooner. You usually need to complete your tax return or file for extensions by April 15th each year. It is essential to keep your form W-2 because it will help you complete your tax return accurately.

Who can I contact for a copy of Form W-2?

You should contact the payroll department or employer for a replacement. Your business (or former business) can mail you up to two copies of your W-2 if it has already filed the forms with the Social Security Administration and the IRS.
