I Need My W-2

Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, shows your income and the taxes withheld from your pay for the year. Most people get their W-2 forms by the end of January. You need it to file an accurate tax return.

If you need a copy of your W-2, here’s what you should do:

1. Contact your employer. This is your quickest option. Make sure they have your correct address. Some employers may even have a W-2 for previous years.

2. Call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 after February 23. NOTE: We will not be able to accept any Federal W-2 that is missing the State information in Boxes 15 through 17.

3. If you still haven’t received your W-2, use Form C– 4267 Employee's Substitute Wage and Tax Statement. You should use your last paystub to estimate your wages and withholdings.

Visit the IRS website for more information.

The New Jersey Division of Taxation is unable to provide you with a copy of your W-2.
