Full Answer

If employees do not receive their W2 by February 14, the IRS recommends they contact the IRS directly. Employees who contact the IRS will need to have the following information available:

  • Name, address, phone number and social security number
  • Employer address and phone number
  • Employer identification number, if known
  • Estimate of wages earned, federal income tax withheld and dates of employment
The IRS will contact the employer directly to request the W2's be resent, and will issue the employee Form 4852. In the event employees still do not receive their W2's by the time they file their taxes, the IRS will accept Form 4852 instead.

    What is a "Tax Gross Up?"?

    A:

    The term "Tax Gross Up" refers to the practice by employers of reimbursing an employee for taxes paid out of pocket when receiving money allocated for expenses such as relocation costs. For example, if an employee is promised a lump sum of $7,000 to move, then a payment will be issued for the initial sum plus the taxes levied by the IRS, honoring the agreed upon sum, as stated by Investopedia. While this practice is solid in theory, it still leaves a problem as in addition to the tax applied to the original sum, the gross up itself is subject to taxes.
