Can I get my 2014-2016 w2?

For a new job, they are requesting w2 information from a company that is unable to verify my employment due to the company no longer existing. Can I please retrieve the w2’s I entered those years??

TurboTax does not have a copy of the W-2 or Form 1099. It would have W-2 and Form 1099 worksheets that included the tax data from the forms that were entered. The worksheets would be included in the PDF of the tax return in the tax year the return was completed.

Copies of a Form 1099 would have to obtained from the issuer of the form.


To access your current or prior year online tax returns sign onto the TurboTax website with the userID you used to create the account -

Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and on the section Your tax returns & documents click on Show. Click on the Year and Click on Download/print return (PDF)


If you cannot obtain the W-2 from your employer, then for a fee you can get a complete copy of a W-2 from the Social Security Administration -

You can get a free Wage and Income transcript from the IRS -

For a fee of $50 you can get a complete federal tax return to include copies of W-2's, if you mailed the tax return and included a paper W-2, from the IRS by completing Form 4506 -

This is another example of why it is so important to save paper copies of the return and all the associated tax reporting forms for at least 5 years ... you never know when you will need it.
