Can I get my AGI from my W-2?

SOLVEDby TurboTax413Updated 3 weeks ago

Nope. Here's why you won't find your AGI (adjusted gross income) on your W-2 or year-end pay stub:

  • Your W-2 or pay stub only shows your unadjusted gross income from that one job
  • Your W-2 or pay stub doesn't include other income that goes into your AGI calculation, such as income from self-employment or side jobs, interest or dividends, capital gains, taxable state and local refunds, unemployment, or alimony received
  • Your W-2 or pay stub doesn't list deductible items that adjust (reduce) your gross income, things like moving expenses, alimony paid, and education-related deductions

The only place to reliably get last year's AGI is from your originally-filed, unamended 2021 tax return copy or an official IRS transcript
