Hi, my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with your question.
Are you looking for a transcript of what was reported on the w-2's that were submitted to your employees?
Did someone help you prepare the W-2's for you? They should be able to provide you a copy. To get this information I would need a signed power of attorney form. I am not sure how fast that the IRS would turn around the request. Is it possible to get the information from the company who prepared the W-2's?
I see, you would need to request this information from the IRS. So a power of attorney form 2848 is needed. You could also call and request this information from the IRS. Again, I am not sure how quickly the IRS would be able to turn around the request.
Let me look into a few more things. Please give me a few moments.
I checked to see if you could request this information electronically and unfortunately was not able to find any other option than contacting the IRS.
You could give me power of attorney for your company not for your employees. You would not be able to get the transcripts until Monday. I am not sure the level of detail that the IRS would be able to provide in a transcript.
What is a good email?
To get individual W-2's you are correct that each employee would individually sign a W-2 form. I was suggesting that your company execute the Power of Attorney form to get the information.
