What if it's February but I still don't have my W-2?

SOLVEDby TurboTax1197Updated January 04, 2022

If it's early in the month, sit tight. Employers have until January 31 to mail out W-2s, which means your W-2 should arrive any day now.

While you're waiting, here's some things you can do:

  • Ask your employer when they mailed out their W-2s
  • Did your employer mail your W-2 to an old address? If so, ask them to re-send it to the new one
  • See if you can import your W-2

If you haven't received your W-2 by February 14, it's time to take action:

  1. Grab your last 2021 pay stub and call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040
  2. The IRS will ask you for some info before following up with your employer
  3. After notifying the IRS, you can either continue waiting for your W-2 or paper-file your return using Form 4852 and your last pay stub
