Before you file your 2010 tax return, you should make sure you have all the needed documents including all your forms W-2. You should receive a form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, from each of your employers. Employers had until Jan. 31, 2011 to send you a 2010 form W-2 earnings statement.
If you haven’t received your W-2, follow these four steps:
• Contact your employer if you have not received your W-2 and inquire if and when the W-2 was mailed. If it was mailed, it may have been returned to the employer because of an incorrect or incomplete address. After contacting the employer, allow a reasonable amount of time for them to resend or to issue the W-2.
• Contact the IRS if you do not receive your W-2 by Feb. 14, contact the IRS for assistance at 800-829-1040. When you call, you must provide your name, address, city and state, including zip code, Social Security number, phone number and have the following information: employer’s name, address, city and state, including zip code and phone number, dates of employment and an estimate of the wages you earned, the federal income tax withheld and when you worked for that employer during 2010. The estimate should be based on year-to-date information from your final pay stub or leave-and-earnings statement, if possible.
