When mailing in taxes should I send W2 form?

Asked by: mgates 233 views YA Discussion

Am I expected to send in the W2 form I got in January to the IRS or do they have that information and I don’t have to mail in a W2?

    You attach all indicated forms to your return. There is even a note on the side of the form of where to staple them.

    manually filed returns REQUIRE a copy of the W-2, there is a place cleared printed where you are to attach it
    the SSA receives the originals of your W-2′s, not IRS

    Your W-2 usually has four duplicates on it – one that goes with the Federal forms, two that go to state or local agencies, and one for your records. Send the appropriate ones with your returns.

    If you e-file your tax return, you don’t have to attach W-2.
    If you mail in your paper tax return, you need to attach W-2.

    Attach the W2′s you have to your tax return, in case IRS has a question on your return, they already have the w2′s.

    good luck
