Stupid question really,... is it to late to file my tax even when i just recieved my w2 ?

If you have NOT already filed the 2022 tax return, you can add the W-2 you received to the 2022 return.

Using TurboTax a 2022 tax return can be e-filed at any time on or before October 16, 2023.

 

If you have filed the 2022 tax return then you would need to amend the 2022 return that was filed to add the W-2.

An amended return, Form 1040-X, can only be printed and mailed to the IRS if the original tax return was not e-filed. The IRS will take up to 20 weeks or longer to process an amended tax return.


Before starting to amend the tax return, wait for the tax refund to be received or the taxes due to be paid and processed by the IRS.


See this TurboTax support FAQ for amending a tax return - https://ttlc.intuit.com/turbotax-support/en-us/help-article/tax-return/amend-change-correct-return-a...

It is never too late to file a tax return. There is no time limit to "file".  But, there is a 3 year limit to  get a refund. 

 

You cannot e-file after Oct 15 (Oct 16 for 2023), but can still mail in a return.
