my old job refuses to send me my w2 and I don’t have my last paycheck stub

A) If your old job refuses to send you your W-2 and you don’t have your last paycheck stub, there are still some steps you can take to obtain the necessary tax information for filing your tax return.

First, try contacting your former employer again and explain that you need your W-2 in order to file your tax return. You may be able to persuade them to provide you with the W-2, especially if you let them know that failing to provide it is a violation of federal law.

If your employer still refuses to provide you with the W-2, you can contact the IRS for assistance. The IRS has a process for handling W-2 disputes, which typically involves contacting your employer on your behalf to request the missing information. You can contact the IRS by calling their toll-free number at 1-800-829-1040.

In the meantime, you can still file your tax return using Form 4852, which is a substitute for the W-2. You’ll need to estimate the amounts from your last paycheck and other records, so it may take some time and effort to complete this form accurately.

It’s important to try to resolve the issue with your former employer as soon as possible, as failing to report all of your income on your tax return can result in penalties and interest charges from the IRS.

be ready to give the following information:

  • Your name, address and Social Security number.
  • Your employer’s name, address, city, state, zip code and telephone number, even if your employer has gone out of business.
  • Dates of employment.
  • An estimate of the wages you earned and the federal income tax withheld. Your estimate should be based on your final pay stub of the year or earnings statement, if available.
