Topic 154 - Form W-2 and Form 1099–R
(What to Do if Not Received)
If you do not receive your Form W-2 or Form 1099-R by January 31st , or
your information is incorrect, contact your employer/payer.
If you do not receive the missing or corrected form by February
14th from your employer/payer, you may call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040
for assistance. You must provide your name, address (including zip code),
phone number, Social Security Number, dates of employment, your
employer/payer's name, address (including zip code), and phone number.
The IRS will contact the employer/payer for you and request the missing form.
IRS will also send you a Form 4852 (PDF), Substitute
for Form W-2 or Form 1099-R.
If you do not receive the missing form in sufficient time to file your
tax return timely, you may use the Form 4852. If you receive the missing or
corrected Form W-2 or Form 1099 after you file your return and a correction
is needed, use Form 1040X (PDF), Amended U.S.
Individual Income Tax Return. For additional information on filing an
amended return, refer to Topic 308, Amended Returns.
