What is a W2?
A W2 is a form that an employer completes and sends to each employee at the end of the year. It shows how much money the employee made during the year and how much was withheld in taxes.
How do businesses usually distribute W2s?
If you worked for a company that has since closed, you may be wondering how you will receive your W2. Fortunately, businesses usually have a process in place for distributing W2s to employees, even if the company is no longer in operation. Here are a few options to consider:
1. The company may have assigned someone to handle employee records and tax forms. This person can likely help you get your W2.
2. The state in which the company operated may have a tax agency that can help you obtain your W2.
3. You can also try contacting the IRS directly. They may be able to help you obtain your W2 from the company, or they may be able to provide you with an estimate of your taxes owed based on your last pay stub.
What do you need to do if you didn’t receive your W2?
If you didn’t receive your W2, you should contact your employer and ask for a copy. If your employer is no longer in business, you can contact the IRS for assistance.
Who can you contact if you need help getting your W2?

How to request a copy of your W2 from the IRS
If you worked for an employer during the year and are expecting to receive a W-2 form from them, but the business has since closed, you can still request a copy of your W2 from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Here’s how to request a copy of your W2 from the IRS:
-Complete Form 4506-T. This form requests a “transcript” of your tax return information, which will include your W2 information.
-Mail or fax Form 4506-T to the IRS. Be sure to include a daytime phone number where you can be reached in case the IRS has any questions.
-The IRS will then mail you a copy of your W2.
How to get a copy of your W2 from your state
If your company has closed and you need a copy of your W2, your first step is to contact your state’s labor department. Ask if they have a record of your employer and if they can provide you with a copy of your W2. If they don’t have a record of your employer, you can try searching for your W2 online.
The best way to search for your W2 is by using the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) online services. You will need to create an account and provide some basic information, such as your name, address, and date of birth. Once you have created an account, you will be able to access your W2 information.
If you are unable to find your W2 using the SSA’s online services, you can also try contacting the IRS. You will need to provide them with some basic information, such as your name, address, Social Security number, and date of birth. The IRS may be able to provide you with a copy of your W2 if they have it on file.
What if you still can’t get your W2?
If you still can’t get your W2, you should contact the IRS. You can do this by calling 1-800-829-1040. You will need to have your social security number, your employer’s name, address, and phone number, and the dates you worked for them handy when you call.
According to the IRS, if your employer has closed or gone out of business, you should still receive your W2. The best way to get your W2 is to contact your employer directly. If that’s not possible, you can also try contacting the state labor department or the IRS.
