I filed by paper this year . 3 W2s
w2 1- $20k
w2 2- $30k
w2 3- $40k
total wages reported $90k
looking at my transcripts it looks like w2 1 is in their system twice so wages per information reports look to be 110k. Trying to get this fixed but if I can’t and they don’t catch it’s a duplicate will they still be able to identify that I reported the 3 W2s because it’s a paper return and not electronic where they easily have what you reported electronically?
just worried that there gonna try to send me an AUR for the full 110k because it’s paper and not electronic.
sorry I have high anxiety
Did the employer file a corrected W-2 statement? If this doesn't show up on the transcript then contact the employer to find out if they made an error or if they filed a corrected form.
I’m working on trying to resolve that portion but it’s rather difficult since the business was a covid causalty and the owner has passed away.
Can you look at the original question and voice your opinion on that
Nobody but you has access to your return so only you can look at it. What would you really need to look at for the actual W-2 forms that were issued. You can also get copies of the W-2 forms from the social security administration if you don't have the ones that were issued to you originally.
I appreciate your time but you are definitely missing what I’m asking. Probably not worded best.
because I reported by paper will they be able to see I reported the amounts of the other w2s because I didn’t electronically send it to them to compare vs the IRs.
my submission 3w2s total 90k. There system 4w2s total $110k
Is your tax return wrong? How much is on 1040 line 1 wages? If it's wrong the IRS probably won't catch that. You will need to amend to take off the duplicate. Oh, you said the IRS transcript shows 4 W2s? If your 1040 return is right then just wait and see if the IRS send you a letter or bill. Then you can explain it.
