We do not know what you are writing about or how it relates to your income tax return. Please explain what your income tax question is.
I have certain W-2 forms that I do not have at my access right now. If I don't gain access to those I simply will lose money. It is no big deal. Just fussing over how I don't have all my paperwork. Ha!
My income tax question is this: If I do not have my W-2 forms at my hands, then are there workers from Intuit who can find those forms I do not have and file them for me?
No. You need to ask your employers for another copy. Did they take taxes out of your pay? Are you supposed to get a W2 or a 1099 for it? If you didn't get a W2 they might have paid you as an independent contractor. What money do you think you will lose?
@brothersinchrist No. TurboTax cannot find your W-2's for you. W-2's come from your employer(s). Contact the employers to get copies if you lost the ones issued to you earlier in the year or if you did not receive them.
Every 2020 W-2 that you received must be reported on your 2020 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.
Go to Federal>Wages & Income to enter a W-2.
After you enter the first one, you click Add Another W-2.
W-2's come from your employer, and they have until February 1 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, drop in, email and/or snail mail an old employer to make sure they know where to send your W-2.
And….SAVE YOUR OWN W-2! TURBOTAX DOES NOT SAVE IT FOR YOU. TurboTax will not have a copy of it in your account and will not have an image even if you snapped a photo. It is up to you to save it for your own records as stated on the back of the W-2.
Other ways to get W-2’s:
Pay Social Security $90 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.
