Question

I have a question about my prior-year W-2. I need to file a prior-year state return, but I lost W-2 Forms from last year. What should I do?

Answer

Contact your employer to get a duplicate prior-year W-2.

If your employer can’t give you your lost W-2 Forms, or you don’t want to contact your employer, you can get a Wage and Income transcript directly from the IRS online here.
