My out of State college age daughter worked for three Ohio

This answer was rated:

My out of State college age daughter worked for three Ohio restaurants this past summer. I have all her W2s and 1099s, except one restaurant. I have telephoned the restaurant 3 times. No W2 results and no call back. I have written them and provided a SASE for their convenience to mail me the W2. Still no results. My tax preparer, who is doing her taxes, has all her pay stubs and 1099s to do her 1040. We do not have the Federal ID for the the restaurant who will not send the remaining W2. The tax preparer filed an extension because of this. My tax preparer states the IRS will not like listing income without the Federal Id of the employer. What are my and my daughter's remedies to get the former employer on the ball so she can file her taxes?

MyVirtualCPA :

Thanks for asking your question! I'm sorry to hear about your tax issue and I'm going to try my best to help you understand or resolve it.

MyVirtualCPA :

How are you tonight?

MyVirtualCPA :

I understand you are frustrated. However, in Mid May you can order your daughter's wage and income transcript from the IRS...it will give you the information from all the employers who reported income for your daughter.

MyVirtualCPA :

It should have the Federal ID number on it as well

MyVirtualCPA :

This is free

MyVirtualCPA :

If the restaurant did not report a W-2 to the IRS then include the income on line 21 as other income as tax software generally won't let you put W-2 wages in without a Federal ID number

Customer:

Where do I call or write in Mid May to get a wage and income transcript from the IRS? Is there a standard form to use?

MyVirtualCPA :

You use form 4506-T and select option 8
