Can I use my last pay stub if I don't have my W-2 yet?

SOLVEDby TurboTax4896Updated December 21, 2021

We can't guarantee your taxes will be accurate if you try to file without your W-2. There's important info on your W-2 that may not be on your final pay stub.

Your employer is required to send W-2s by January 31. If you haven't received your W-2 by February 14, we have some suggestions.

If it's still early, we applaud you for thinking about your taxes this early! You can use TurboTax to get a head start with the info you already know and get an estimate of your refund.
