Question: I disagree with the amount of wages reported on my Form W-2? What should I do?
Answer: Contact your employer immediately and ask for a corrected W-2 (Form W-2C, Corrected Wage and Tax Statement).
Question: My employer went out of business and I didn’t receive a Form W-2. I can’t locate the owner. What should I do?
Answer: You are required to report all your income, whether or not you received information forms from the parties who paid you. You’ll have to reconstruct your income and income tax withholding based on your paycheck stubs or other documents.
According to the IRS, you should contact the IRS and a representative will take a W-2 complaint. Contact us for details and assistance.
Question: The social security number reported on my Form W-2 is incorrect. What should I do?
Answer: Make sure that your employer has your correct social security number. Ask your employer for a corrected W-2 (Form W-2C, Corrected Wage and Tax Statement). If the W-2 information is not corrected, you will not get social security credit for the wages you earned.
