Filing a Tax Return Without a Form W-2
Complete a Form 4852 (Substitute for Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement) and include your full name, SSN, address, tax year as well as employer name, address and EIN. Use the figures on your final pay stub to list all wages, tips, other compensation and taxes withheld on the form. Two fill-in questions require you to state where you got your figures and what attempts you made to obtain an actual Form W-2 from your employer. In the event you do receive the missing Form W-2 and the figures differ, you can amend your tax return by filing a Form 1040X (Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return).
