I've requested that my W-2 be mailed to me by my former employer. Are they required to do so legally?

Asked almost 5 years ago - Seattle, WA

I've left E-mails and text messages with no response. Thanks.

    Answered . Absolutely ,the employer is required by IRS regulations to provide you with your W-2 by Feburary 1st, 2010. And to mail a W-3 to the IRS with that same information.

    Call the IRS and report this situation. If you have all your paystubs, then you would be able to report your income that way, and the IRS may accept your return that way pending their contacting your employer to enforce compliance.
