Nothing is more vexing than to realize that the W-2 or 1099 form is missing, as you prepare to file your taxes. Certainly, with other papers, it might have only been shuffled. If you assume that this has happened, quit reading this article now and start tackling the paperwork stack on the desk.

Conversely, only house cleaning could not benefit you if you never found it in the first place. Past and even present employers frequently do not take due consideration in supplying the appropriate tax documentation to an employee. The task of finding the proposed documents can, therefore, be very frustrating, to say the least.

Immediately consult your employer

in some cases, it is extremely easy to say than to do. It is less likely for an option over time as you are probably trying to file a return for the previous fiscal year.  That being said, the easiest and most effective method is getting your W-2 and perhaps another income statement if its probable.

Contact the payroll company for your employer

This is really a solid opportunity if you are a secondary contact for the payroll provider of your employer. however, this is usually not the smartest option for security reasons.

Consult the IRS

You must be aware that employers must submit the W-2 form to you and the IRS. You can take a whole other course of action, whether you’ve entirely misplaced your W-2 or believe that your employer has only submitted the income statements to IRS. But you can keep on reading if your employer has not submitted any income statements to the IRS.

Please use the 4852 form

Without an income statement of a W-2 form, you are supposed to not file your taxes.  For the purposes of the preparation of your tax returns, you can download the IRS Form 4852 which is an alternate for a W-2 or 1099-R. You are also required to deliver an adequate estimation for your salary packages and tax withholding per year.  How would you make an assumption of your income and retention for the year? Take a glance at your last paycheck stub. This is likely to contain your “year-to-date” information. Even though this is the least contentious method, it really should be the last resort, because it may imply that your tax returns need to be modified later.

If in doubt wait it out

If you are apprehensive about the delivery of the forms that you have not received them and it’s not even February yet, just be patient and persistent. By the end of the month of January, the employers are instructed to issue all W-2 forms. Just wait for a period of a few days before you start working on your plan of action.
