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.

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.

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.

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.
