Dear Customer,

I am sorry that we cannot obtain your W-2s for you. We are an answering service; we can suggest you ways you can obtain your W-2s.

1) Your employer who issued you the W-2s should have copies of your W-2s and can issue you new copies.

2) The IRS can provide you with transcripts of your W-2s, 1099s, etc. The loan officers will take that even better than copies of W-2s because they are official copies.

2a) The fastest way is to walk into a regional IRS office to request for a transcript.

2b) Call the(###) ###-####customer service of the IRS to request copies to be mailed or faxed to you.

2c) Fill out IRS Form 4506-T and mail or fax it in. They will send you the W-2 transcript in the mail. It will take about ten days to two weeks.

3) Call the SSA to request copies of your W-2s. The W-2s are filed with the SSA. So, they have a procedure to give us a copy back to us. However, this will take the longest time. This is the way to get the copy of the original copy.

Please feel free to follow up.
