The best way is to contact companies you work for, and ask them to issue a duplicate.

If it is impossible, you may file substitute form - http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4852.pdf

If you filed your tax returns you may request W2s from IRS

If you need an exact copy of a previously filed and processed return and all attachments (including Form W-2), you must complete Form 4506 - Request for Copy of Tax Return - http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4506.pdf and mail it to the IRS address in the instructions along with a $39 fee for each tax year requested. Copies are generally available for returns filed in the current and past 6 years.

In cases where an exact copy of the return is not needed, tax return and transcripts may be ordered. The tax return transcript shows most line items contained on the return as it was originally filed, including any accompanying forms and schedules. In most cases, a tax return transcript will meet the requirements for lending institutions for mortgage verification purposes.

The transcript can be ordered by completing a Form 4506-T - http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4506t.pdf or calling(NNN) NNN-NNNNand following the prompts in the recorded message. There is no charge for the transcript and you should receive it in 10 business days from the time we receive your request. Tax return transcripts are generally available for the current and past three years. If you need a statement of your tax account which shows changes that you or the IRS made after the original return was filed, you must request a "Tax Account Transcript". This transcript shows basic data including marital status, type of return filed, adjusted gross income, taxable income, payments and adjustments made on your account. Tax return and account transcripts are generally available for the current and past 3 years.

Form 4506-T can also be used to get proof from the IRS that you did not file a tax return for a particular tax year.

The Social Security Administration might provide copies of Forms W-2 for retirement purposes at no charge and for other than retirement purposes for a fee of $37.00 per tax year. Call 1-800-772-1213. The address to write is SSA, Division of Earnings Records Operations, PO Box 33003, Baltimore, MDNNN-NN-NNNN You will need your Social Security Number (SSN), name as shown on your Social Security card, and different name you may have had on your Form W-2, your complete mailing address, day-time phone number, years requested, and reason for your request.
