Note: Wage and income transcripts are available for up to 10 years, but current tax year information may
not be complete until July. This transcript doesn't include any state or local tax information reported by your employer to SSA on Form W-2.
If you e-filed your tax return or you didn't attach your Form W-2 to your paper return, then use one of the transcript options above. Otherwise, you'll need to contact
your employer or SSA for a copy.
The quickest way to obtain a copy of your current year Form W-2 is through your employer. Your employer first submits Form W-2 to SSA; after
SSA processes it, they transmit the federal tax information to the IRS.
If you meet certain criteria, you can. The offer in compromise program is available but you must file certain forms and meet very strict standards.
What are consequences of not filing a tax return?
If you don't file a required return, the statute of limitations for collections never technically expires. The IRS can also file a return
for you and send you a bill. They don't give you the benefit of any deductions you might be able to deduct on your own return.
