You cannot enter your 2019 W-2 in your 2020 tax return.  You should have a W-2 for the time you worked in 2019 at that job, & a 2020 W-2 to add the couples months you worked in 2020.

 

You need to amend your 2019 return to add your 2019 W-2 (if you filed a 2019 return).

How do I amend a 2019 return in TurboTax?

-------------------------

If you did not file a 2019 return, you would need to file a 2019 return to include the 2019 W-2.  You cannot file a 2019 return with the Online version.  The Online version is only to prepare the current years tax return which is 2020 now.

 

To file a 2019 return with TurboTax you need the Desktop software which is installed on your computer.  You would also need to mail in your 2019 return.  You can purchase the 2019 desktop software from TurboTax at the following website:

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.
