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 for security reasons you still need information from the actual W-2 to import it.  You might need to phone, email and/or snail mail an old employer to make sure they know where to send your W-2.

Other ways to get W-2’s:

 

Pay Social Security $86 per W-2:

You can get a wage and income transcript from the IRS:  It will not show the actual W-2, 1099’s, etc, but will show the income information the IRS received.  It will not, however, show your state information. It will only show the federal information.

How may I get a copy of my W2s if I cant remember each employer. I was doing Temp agency work so it makes it difficult to rember who to ask. Is there one place where I might find the information I need to file. I'm falling behind and can't afford to pay late fees due to homelessness and trying to hold a job to take care of myself. I'm already behind with 2018 taxes

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 - https://faq.ssa.gov/en-us/Topic/article/KA-02501

 

You can get a free Wage and Income transcript from the IRS - https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript
