how soon can i import w-2 from walmart

  • Whenever Walmart makes it available, which they are not required to do until  Jan 31.
  • Thank you
  • I just googledwalmart w2 and it took me to the site that you can print the w2's they are ready if you elected to email yours
  • However, the IRS isn't accepting any returns now until Jan 30.
  • Walmart W-2's were available as of 1/7/2013
That will be completely up to the date when Walmart's payroll company is able to make the electronic W-2 available for importing into tax return programs like Turbo Tax.  You might be able to get an answer from your human resources or payroll department.  If the payroll company has a direct contact number, you might want to contact them to find out more information.  Most payroll companies are still working to get all W2 information together for reporting, even if electronically.

The IRS won't begin processing returns until January 22nd, at the earliest date (the date might be later due to last minute tax law changes).  So, even if you are able to submit an e-file now, that e-file will stay in the Intuit servers until the IRS begins to process returns.  Once the return is submitted into the Intuit servers, you cannot take it back to make any changes; this is similar to when you place mail in the mailbox at the post office and can no longer retrieve it.
    We have heard they are available now

      People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

      1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
      2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
      3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
      4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
      5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
