W-2 - Additional, Incorrect, Lost, Non-receipt, Omitted

Question: I received an incorrect W-2 form. My former employer won’t issue me a corrected W-2. What should I do?

Answer:

If your attempts to have the incorrect Form W-2 (.pdf), Wage and Tax Statement, corrected by your employer are unsuccessful and it is after February 14, you can request that an IRS representative initiate a Form W-2 complaint. You may call the IRS toll free at(###) ###-####or visit an IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center (TAC) in person.

  • The IRS will send your employer a letter requesting that they furnish you a corrected Form W-2 within ten days. The letter advises your employer of their responsibilities to provide a correct Form W-2 and of the penalties for failure to do so.
  • The IRS will send you a letter with instructions and Form 4852 (.pdf), Substitute for Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, or Form 1099-R, Distributions from Pensions, Annuities, Retirement or Profit-Sharing Plans, IRAs, Insurance Contracts, etc. You can use the Form 4852 in the event that your employer does not provide you with the corrected Form W-2 in time to file your tax return.
