What To Do If You Did Not Receive Your W-2 Or You Lost It
All W-2's should have been mailed/postmarked to you by January 31, 2007. If you did not receive your W-2, then you should contact your employer. It is possible that your W-2 was returned to them due to an incorrect address. Your employer can issue you a 'reissued statement'. They can also charge for this service.
If you do not receive your W-2 by February 14, 2007, you should contact the IRS (1-800-829-1040). Be prepared to offer them the following information of the name and address of your employer, along with your name, address and social security number.
You are still required to file your return on time even if you do not receive a W-2. Attach Form 4852, Substitute for Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement with your return. Any refund due you will be delayed until the information you provided is verified by the IRS and your employer.
Should you receive a W-2C (Corrected Copy of W-2) and you have already filed your return, you will need to file an amended return 1040X, Amended you.S. Individual Income Tax Return.
