My wife hasn’t received one W-2. What is the legal cutoff date to receive a W-2? When is the employer liable?
By law, W-2 forms must have been postmarked by Jan. 31st. If it is not in the mail now, the employer is in violation of the law.If an employer fails to file the W-2 forms by the required date, it is subject to a fine for each form filed late.I hope this helps!
