File an extension. If you will owe the IRS, pay them today.

See:

The next step: 

  • Locate your w2 or ask for another copy. 
  • If necessary, get a copy from the IRS. It will not include your state information. View your tax account with the IRS
  • The form 4852 is a last resort based on paystubs and your return must be mailed in.

Options:

1) Some companies have W2s on the ADP website to download.   https://my.adp.com   ( might be a longshot but they do handle a number of companies W2s).     

2) You also may be able to get some of the information from your last paycheck as a last resort to file your taxes, and if you need to make any corrections later, you could file an amended return when you get the corrected information.
