TurboTax does not have your W-2., nor does TurboTax get that information and enter it without any effort from you. Whether you key it in, snap a photo of it, or import it, YOU have to enter it on your own tax return. Your W-2 comes from your employer. Employers have until January 31 to issue your W-2. Some employers are partnered with TT to allow you to import your W-2 in to your tax return. You do need some information from the actual W-2 in order to do the import. If your employer has not yet issued W-2’s you have to wait. Do not file a tax return unless ALL of your W-2’s have been entered on the SAME tax return.
You will need the paper W-2. Importing needs to verify that you have the W-2. It asks for information that will only be on your W-2.
