Every 2019 W-2 that you received must be reported on your 2019 tax return, even if they are for small amounts. Remember that each one of those W-2’s has your Social Security number on it, and that income was reported to the IRS by the employer. You do not want to get in trouble with the IRS for under-reporting your income.
ALL of your W-2’s must be entered on the SAME tax return. After you enter the first one, you click Add Another W-2.
W-2's come from your employer, and they have until Jan. 31 to issue it. Some employers allow you to import the W-2 through the software, but often you still need information from the actual W-2 just to import it. So waiting for your employer might be your only choice now.
@J1900th If you have not filed yet, please follow the instructions below, to locate your W-2's:
- Open or continue your return.
- Select the search icon at the top of the page and search for W-2 and select the Jump to link.
- Select Work on my W-2 now and Continue.
If you have already filed your tax return:
Although you may have previously filed with us, we didn't save a copy of your W-2. If you used our mobile app to snap a picture of your W-2, it's not saved on your device.
Your best bet is to ask your employer or payroll department for another copy of your W-2.
Here are some more options:
- Order a copy from the Social Security Administration. It's free if you need it for Social Security-related reasons; otherwise, it's $86 per request.
- Order a full copy of your return from the IRS for $50, which will also include your W-2.
- Wage and income transcripts are available from the IRS free of charge.
- They're not exact copies, but they contain everything on your W-2 except the state and local information.
