    Are you talking about the form you received from your employer? If so, contact the accounting department and ask for clarification. If it’s a reasonably sized firm, they will have an answer for you.

    If it’s a small firm that isn’t large enough to have an accounting department, ask the person who prepares checks. If for some reason you think there’s fraud involved, go to the state attorney general or the employment commission and ask for advice.

    It may be that your income for any given pay period wasn’t large enough to withhold income tax. But if they withheld money for Social Security or Medicare, it should be on your statement.

    You individual checks may not have been high enough to withhold anything or you filed exempt.

    When you received your paychecks, did the pay stub indicate that Federal Income Taxes were withheld?

    If there was nothing withheld during the course of the year, your w-2 will not show an amount for taxes withheld.

    It’s blank b/c nothing was withheld b/ you made very little. You don’t come anywhere near having a tax liability at that income, so they withheld nothing.
