Unused Vacation Pay from Previous Year

I worked for a state department until February 2019. I received a check from this department for unused vacation pay in September 2020. Although the pay stub indicates withholding taxes, I have not received a W-2 or any other tax form. Do I include this as 2020 income and if so, how do I enter this income in TurboTax?

Yes, you would include this as Wage income in 2020.  It will be reported on a W2.  For the 2020 tax year, employers must provide employees with a Form W-2 by February 1, 2021 so if you do not have it by Monday, you will have to call to get another copy sent.

Thank you for such a quick reply. I'll enter the information in TurboTax for now and look for my W-2 next week.
