Correct.  The IRS masks SSN and EINs.    Get that information from your employer.

 

Why don't you have your W-2?  Employers were requred by law to get it to you no later then Jan 31, 2019.

 

See this IRS article:

the IRS copies do not have state info.  if that's needed you'll have to get the W-2's from the Social security administration.  there is a fee

If you only have to file the federal return you can enter a fake # in the program to get past that field
and then mail in the return because you will need to attach copies of the IRS transcript
