This is not uncommon, but be aware that it is virtually NEVER an acceptable excuse for failing to report accurately and timely. If you do not receive your Form W-2, Form 1099-R, Form 1099-INT, or Form 1099-MISC by January 31st , or your information is incorrect, contact your employer/payer first. Many times they have been returned in the mail, for any number of reasons, or a substitute is available easily, even on line. If you do not receive the missing or corrected form by February 15th from your employer/payer, you may call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 for assistance. You must provide your name, address (including zip code), phone number, Social Security Number, dates of employment, your employer/payer's name, address (including zip code), and phone number. With your information, the IRS will contact the employer/payer for you and request the missing form. IRS will also send you a Form 4852 (PDF) (Substitute for Form W-2 or Form 1099-R). If you do not receive the missing form in sufficient time to file your tax return timely, you may use the Form 4852. If you receive the missing or corrected Form W-2 or Form 1099 after you file your return and a correction is needed, use Form 1040X (PDF) (Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return). By law all W2's have to be mailed out by Jan. 31st. If you still haven't received it, try to contact your employer. Make sure they have the right address. If the address is wrong, the USPS will not forward it.
