The Internal Revenue Service or any other agency of the federal government for that matter offers every document that you need to do your responsibilities for free. When it comes to the Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement form, which reports the wage and salary information of each employee a company has along with the amount of taxes withheld from their paycheck to the IRS.
The form itself is easy to get by as you, an employer, will only submit it to the IRS once each year for every employee that is working in your company.
Where can I get a printable free W-2 form?
As mentioned early on, you can get to the IRS website and use the search bar to find it or you can simply click the link below to be redirected to the form directly. Since it’s a pdf file, you can download, view, and print it off from your browser.
What if I don’t file W-2?
Not filing the W-2 or simply forgetting to file one will definitely bring troubles. Sure, you will still receive a return but if this tax filing error causes you to owe additional tax, which is going to be 100% the case here, you must file an amendment and pay the rest of it by April 15 deadline.
Otherwise, you will be subjected to late penalties and fees. Also, keep in mind that if you have 2 W-2’s, you must file both. So keeping an eye at the Social Security number on the W-2’s is a good way to understand this. Both papers are likely to have your SSN, therefore you must file and submit both forms to the IRS.
