I will guide you through online process - but you will need following infromation

- who provides you with online acess ?

you will need to have access information handy

both may be obtained from your HR person at your work.

does that mean i can't access it online, unless i meet with my HR, because presently i am on vacation and i can't lay hand on my HR so is here anyway i can access it online
Expert:  Lev replied 1 year ago.

You CAN access your W2 form, however

- you need to know the place where that W2 form is posted and you you need to know security access information.

Also not all employees are posting W2 online.

Some employers are posting on their own sites and some are using service providers.

If you are looking for W2 forms for 2015 - most likely - it is NOT yet posted.

Please let me know if you are looking for W2 form for PRIOR years?
If so - you may request such information from the IRS.

Let me know if that is the case.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i am looking for a website that i can get a W2 online, because the IRS site has taken theirs from online
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am not looking for the form but a site to get W2 with my informations
Expert:  Lev replied 1 year ago.

The ONLY way to see your past W2 forms online - if your employer provides such service.
That is possible either via your employer website OR

via third party providers.

In both situations - you will need to know the address of that webpage AND secure login information - which are generally provided by HR.

For past years - you may order transcripts from the IRS which includes W2 information send by your employer.

While the IRS temporary suspended online access - you still may request a transcript online - but the actual transcript will arrive in mail within 5-10 days.
