WHEN IS MY EMPLOYER REQUIRED TO GIVE ME A W-2?
An employer is required to give you a completed Form W-2 for the calendar year by January 31st* of the following year. (Example: A 2018 Form W-2 must be postmarked to you by January 31, 2019). The employer may choose to deliver the completed W-2 in a manner other than postal mail. For example, employers may send W-2 forms to you electronically with your consent. If you consented to an electronic version of your Form W-2, it must also be available to you by January 31st.
The company that paid you $600 or more through the year for services must meet the above guidelines as well on issuing 1099-M
If you do not receive your Form W-2/1099-M by February 15, contact the employer and ask for it. If you still are not successful in receiving the W-2/1099-M, call the IRS at (800) 829-1040 to report the issue.
*If January 31st falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the employer will have until the next business day to issue the forms.
**Employers are required to provide you with a Form W-2 if you were an employee and had ANY amount of earnings. For example, if you worked only one day or one hour as an employee, a Form W-2 must be issued.
I MADE VERY LITTLE MONEY THIS YEAR. SHOULD I FILE?
Even if a taxpayer’s earnings are under the filing threshold, we do suggest filing for both federal and state income tax forms for 2 reasons.
- Paper trail – We know the government loves their paper trails and this stops any concerns either tax commissions may have on this matter.
- Usually if you have reportable income, you might have a refund if you made little money.
