Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Unless you have power of attorney, you will not be able to get her tax return if you filed separately. You will not get her W2 without her consent even if you filed jointly.
W4 is withholding certificate. It will not tell you anything about her taxes. It will only tell you how her withholding should be calculated (how many allowances she claimed). And the employer will not give it to you.
Any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
