Hi. My name's Lane. I can help here

...

You can get this information by going to IRS' Get transcript

...

Every employer sends a copy of your W-2 to the IRS. This is then entered into your IRS transcript account.

..

(This is how they know whether you're reporting the income - The system expects to see a return with your social security number reporting the income that was reported TO them, tied to your social security number)

...

If you go to the Get transcript site and once you're in, select "Wage and Income transcript," you'll see every W-2 and 1099 that was sent in on your social security number by the employer(s).

Again, here's that website: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript

...

And if you'd prefer not to do that, you can use the paper form 4506-T to request a transcript and it will be sent within 10 business days.

...

https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4506t.pdf

...

Please let me know if you have any questions at all, before rating me.

...

And if you DON'T have other questions Your positive rating … (by using those the stars or faces on your screen, and then clicking “submit”) …would be appreciated.

Otherwise I receive no compensation for the work.

...

Thank you!
