When I file my 2012 taxes do I have to use ALL of my W2s?

Asked by: jbell 441 views YA Discussion

I wanna file my taxes on Saturday, but do I have to have all of my W2s before I file? I will have at least 4 out of 6 of my W2s and the other 2 are just from a part time job and another one that only lasted 2 months. Would it make a big deal if I filed without them?

    Of course you do. All income must be reported. The IRS receives a copy of all and fail to include any and you are guilty of Tax Evasion

    Yes, by law you have to file all at once. A number of things can happen (delayed tax return, audit, etc.) based on an incomplete filing. Since returns are not going to be processed until January 30 at the earliest, you might as well wait.

    yes. the w-2 information is what is sent to the social security administration and the irs. if you file by mail you must attach the w-2′s to your return.

    Yes, it’s a big deal. Illegal too, to file without all of your information and W-2′s. It’s perjury to knowingly file a return without all your info.

    Required to have ALL of them to be reported correctly on your 1040 income tax return during the 2013 tax filing season for the 2012 tax year.
    I have seen as many as 16 W-2 in one tax filing season for 1 taxpayer for that tax year.
    YES NOT reporting ALL of them to start with can and will probably cause you to have some other more complicated and bigger problems during the 2013 tax filing and could even cause some delays in the processing of your 1040 income tax REFUND amount for that reason.
    Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 01/23/2013
