You should have received your W-2 by January 31. If you did not, you should take these steps: (1) Contact your former employer and verify whether your address is correct and request a resubmission of the W-2. (2) If not received in a week, call the IRS and provide the employer’s information, dates of employment and estimated wages. (3) File the return by April 15, 2015 and attach Form 4852 (substitute W-2) or file an extension. (4) File an amended return if your W-2 eventually shows up and differs from what you reported. Don’t forget that we can now prepare and file your return for you.
