W4 form is filed by an employee to direct the payroll person regarding withholding.

The purpose of withholding - to cover expected tax liability.

In January - the employer issues form W2 reporting gross wages and taxes withheld.

That W2 form is used by the employee to prepare tax return.

Any tax withheld is credited toward actual tax liability as calculated on teh tax return.

Let me know if you need any help.

i worked and established a social security account for myself in the 1960's. since then i have occupied myself with studenting. at Stanford University in Palo Alto California.94305. first in the undergraduate division and then in the graduate division. i "worked " in conjunction with a surgeon my father. the accountant did not supply me with a W-2 or presumably file a W-4 as a employer of the good doctor Incorporated. so my "revenue" is presumably maitainence income. not wages and salaries. How might i rectify this in the eyes of the social security administration an Medicare payroll tax authorities.

I 'd like to qualify for social security old age benefits at age 68 years. i am over 65 and have worked --just how many months and years do I need to qualify --for entitlements in my own right?

thanking you ahead of receiving a response. should i try applying online for medicare benefits. social security old age benefits.Using "plain speak" descriptions of my situation.?

i "worked " in conjunction with a surgeon my father. the accountant did not supply me with a W-2 or presumably file a W-4 as a employer of the good doctor Incorporated. so my "revenue" is presumably maitainence income. not wages and salaries. How might i rectify this in the eyes of the social security administration an Medicare payroll tax authorities.

If wages were not paid and social security taxes were not remitted to the SSA - that activity resulted NO social security credits and may not be re-established.

should i try to get in touch with the accounting firm who prepared tax returns for the good doctor and ask the question of them or could you supply an answer.

If indeed wages were paid for services you provided BUT social security taxes were not remitted - that would be a fraud and definitely may be discussed with your employer or his accountant.

what do I supply the tax authorities about my work history?

There is no specific document requirements - ANY supporting documents and affidavits from persons who may certify on your behalf will help.
