My W-2 is wrong.
In 2017, my employer classified me as an independent contractor and paid me as such, i.e. each paycheck had no federal/state taxes withheld, no payments for FICA and Medicare, etc. After a dispute, they issued me a W-2 for 2017 that does not match my pay stubs. The W-2 showed federal/state tax withheld, Medicare tax paid, etc. None of this actually happened. I asked payroll and they said they took my wages and added the taxes that should have been made as a W-2 employee. This sounds wrong! Shouldn't I have just received a W-2 with my wages (whatever is reported on my pay stub) and federal/state tax of $0?
