Hello. Thank you for choosing this Question and Answer service. My name is Angela. I will be assisting you today.
1985 W2--you won't be getting that from the IRS. You can however contact the social security office and they should be able to provide you with a record of your earnings for that year. Whether or not they will be able to provide you with an actual copy of the W2, that I am not sure about. You can request a certified copy of your earnings or a non-certified copy. The information a the following link is how you would accomplish getting that info.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance to you regarding this matter.
