IRS: EMPLOYERS ASKED TO ISSUE W-2 WAGE STATEMENT ASAP

 SEATTLE, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Employers are being reminded by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to try to provide Form W-2, "Wage and Tax Statement" to their employees as soon as possible, the IRS said today. Employers are required by law to have made these forms available to employees by Feb. 1.
 "Anyone who did not receive a W-2 by Feb. 1 should contact their employer to see if the form is available. If the W-2 has not been received by Feb. 16, call the IRS and ask for assistance. In Seattle, call the IRS at 206-442-1040, elsewhere in the state, call 800-829- 1040," said Judy Monahan, IRS spokesperson.
 Taxpayers should receive a W-2 from each employer they worked for during the year, regardless of the length of time. If you lose your W-2, or it is incorrect, ask your employer to provide a new one.
 "Taxpayers unable to get a W-2 before April 15, when the return is due, should file a timely return with the wages and withholding calculated on the basis of whatever records are available, such as payroll stubs, deposit slips, etc. Include a statement explaining the computations for the missing wage and tax information," Monahan said.
 W-2s, or the substitute statement, must be attached to the tax return for the return to be processed.
