So in 2018 i started a new job. When i filed my 2018 returns my refund got held up. The irs had no record of me working the new job. Took almost a yr to get my refund. Well 2019 same thing happened. my employer thought it was the accounts fault since he did some other things he should t have and she fired him. So for the yr 2020 we had a new accountant and guess what i just got a letter in the mail saying my refund is being looked into. i called and yep no record of income on file. i saw her mail off my info with my own 2 eyes so i know she mailed it off. Then someone told me today the irs gets the income information from social security . Tonight i created an online account to see what i could find. Well i found they have no record of me working at this new job as well.
Could someone please tell me whats going on, how can this happen 3 yrs in a row and with 2 different accountants.
Sounds like your employer may be at fault, by either not sending in the required paperwork to the SSA and IRS (or doing so late) and/or failing to remit the taxes withheld from your pay to the IRS. If so, it could be sloppy bookkeeping, incompetence, or even outright fraud. Do any of your coworkers have a similar problem?
I don't necessarily see an issue with the accountants here. They can only work with what they are given. You may wish to see an attorney.
It’s only 5 of us there. I know they were a few days late mailing the stuff off but that’s about all I know. The accountant at the end of the yr does whatever they do and mails us our w-2s like any other job. I’m the only one having a problem.
