What's the official W2 deadline for an employer to get form W2 to an employee? Anybody know for certain?

Who do you send your complaints to when you haven't received your W2 and your employer can't prove they sent it out, and is also billing you $5.00 to resend it to you.
Thanks

Definately contact your employer, because it could easily be lost in the mail. But if it's two weeks later and you still haven't received it, then I would notify the IRS. If they have to ask the company for it, the company will definately be fined.
Remember: if you leave a company during the year, you can ask for your W-2 immediately. You don't have to wait till the following year.

Have you contacted your employer about it? That's the first thing to try. Also, all of the important data on your W-2 can usually be found on your last pay stub of the year.

That's correct, love my things. Incorrect information can be a real problem--and it's our responsibility as employees to make sure that our employer has correct information when it comes time to mail these out. All they have to show is that they mailed it to the most current address they have on record--and if it's wrong, that's on us if it wasn't provided.

I know when i worked for the resturant,the way we got paid was 1-15th of the month we got paid on the 20th. 16th-31st got paid on the 5th. so when it was w-2 time, we would get a stack of the last year employees. ones that werent still employed needed to be mailed by 31st. ones that were recieved thiers on payday with thier check on the 5th.

I know we recieved many back though because of incorrect adresses, or they moved, or could not be located. they would get returned to the resturant, and eventually they would pick them up, or we had to send them back to the home office after a long period of time. so I know that is a big problem. incorrect information.

They are REQUIRED to issue you a W2. They can't avoid it! They have to do this to at least document to Social Security how much they took out on you for the prior year.
Many companies that go out of business at least set up a deal with an accountant or a payroll service to take care of these matters--so I would call the IRS first thing on Tuesday with this information.
