Customer Question

My tax return was rejected multiple times when I tried to file through TurboTax. After multiple calls to the IRS I learned that my former employer gave me a W-2 form that the IRS have no record of. In fact they did not have any record for his business.My former employer did not respond to my email or phone call to my attempt to clear up this matter. My pay stubs indicated that he paid my federal income tax but apparently he did not. One IRS agent tried to connect me to the appropriate office that could deal with my situation but I was never able to get through by phone. Who can I contact at the IRS via mail to resolve this problem? What should I do? I am a resident of Florida and my job was in Florida.

NPVAdvisor :

Hi,

NPVAdvisor :

If you've contacted your employer and they have failed to correct your W-2, then call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040. At that time, an IRS representative may initiate something called a W-2 complaint. A letter will be sent to your employer requesting that they correct your W-2 and provide you with a copy within 10 days. The letter reminds your employer of their responsibilities and of possible penalties that may be incurred.

NPVAdvisor :

If the employer withheld money and and did not forward to IRS, you should be sure that the IRS employee understands that.

NPVAdvisor :

Actually your most EFFICIENT, (immediate gratification) will be to take this to a taxpayer assistance office, taking youcopy of the W-2 of course

NPVAdvisor :

Here is the list of Folrida Offices:

NPVAdvisor :

When you go to the office tell them that you wish to file a "W-2 complaint," and that you employer withheld taxes from you but, according to your information, did not forward to IRS

NPVAdvisor :

In the even that th link above does not work, here are the FLorida Offices with contact, phone and address information:

The phone number is not helpful since that is the one I called all the time. The wait time is extremely long and I can never get connected to the department that is supposed to help me. The list of contacts was helpful. Even though my work schedule does not allow me to go to an office, I did get an idea of how to get to the Ocala office sometime.

Tax Professional: Lane, JD, CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 4 years ago


OK, well I hope that will help.

I just don't know what else to tell you. I'm afraid you have the extent of MY wisdom :)



DO notice that at the bottom of the office listings there's number for the TAXPAYER ADVOCATE's office in Florida.

The TAXPAYER ADVOCATE's office is advertised as a place you can go to when the normal channels at IRS aren't working for you.



Here age those numbers again:

Jacksonville (904) 665-1000
Plantation (954) 423-7677



... hope this is helpful.

Lane




If this HAS helped, I would appreciate a feedback rating of 3 (OK) or better … That's the only way they will pay us here.

HOWEVER, if you need more on this, PLEASE COME BACK here, so you won't be charged for another question.
