I'm not sure if your waiting for the other expert to complete your answer. But if not, you need to go to IRS.Gov and search for form 4506T which you need to fill out and request copies of your W2's for the past 10years. Did you need further clarification?
Expert:  Jax Tax replied 2 years ago.
I am sorry, but you need a correct answer. The IRS does not have copies of your w2s. The IRS does have a W2 transcript but it contains only Federal information. It does not contain items like state taxes withheld and other items. There are two places to get a copy of your w2. Your employer which is unlikely and the Social Security Administration. The SSA is the only place your will get a full copy of your W2. As for the 4506. This IRS form is fine, but just call IRS at 800 829 1040 and they will FAX or mail your income transcripts to you. This will include w2, 1099 1098 and all other items reported to you, nit as I stated it lacks no. Federal related information. It is a good place to start to get an idea of where else you need to look and what else you need. Again, only the SSA will have a full copy of the W2.

You make a good point, Jax Tax about the IRS W2 transcripts not showing State information. I was waiting for response from the customer to give them more information if needed. I also obtained this information from SSA http://ssa-custhelp.ssa.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/301.. The mailing address for SSA is:

Social Security Administration

Office of Central Operations

Division of Earnings Records Operations

PO Box 33003

Baltimore, MD 21290-3003
