Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

The IRS receives copies of your W-2 or 1099 from the issuer. For example, in the case of a W-2, from your employer.

When you file your tax return the IRS then "matches" the information it has received to the information on your tax return.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,
