Form W-2 is the Wage and Tax Statement form that every employee receives from their employer. The form is also must be sent to the Internal Revenue Service at the end of each year for every employee an employer has.
The form basically reports the employee’s annual wages, including tips and the amount of taxes withheld from their paychecks. All employers must send a Form W-2 to the IRS for each employee they have so that their annual income tax and income tax refund can be calculated if they are going to receive any.
It is one of the Forms that every employer has to complete along with W-4 and I-9.
