Contact your employer in writing to request a replacement W-2. Your employer must send it to you by the later of these dates:
Within 30 days after receiving your written request
Within 30 days after your final wage payment
If you can't obtain a replacement W-2 on or before the tax deadline date, you can use the information on your last paycheck stub. Complete Form 4852: Substitute for Form W-2. However, you might need to file an amended return if both of these apply:
You receive your W-2 after filing your return.
Your W-2 and your last paycheck stub information differ.
