When do companies have to send out w2

I never received a Form W-2. What do I do?

Employers must provide employees with Form W-2 on or before January 31st. If it is after January 31st and you have not received your Form W-2, you should contact your employer to find out if and when it was mailed.

If your employer has gone out of business and filed bankruptcy, you should contact the bankruptcy court in your area. There may be an attorney assigned to handle the bankruptcy proceedings and the attorney should be able to supply you with a Form W-2.

If you did not receive your Form W-2, use your paycheck stubs, visit MyFTB, or contact us to obtain your California wage and withholding information. Complete a Substitute Withholding Statement (Form FTB 3525). Attach Form FTB 3525 to your California return when you file it.

Verifying Employment When a Company Has Gone out of Business

When do companies have to send out w2It is not uncommon today to see the words “company out of business” on a job application. With the economy in a slump for the last several years, and layoffs abounding everywhere, checking applicants’ references has become harder than ever.

Should you just give up on verifying employment when a company is no longer in business, or is there something more you can do?

25% – 50% of job seekers falsify their work histories:

Surveys show that somewhere between 25% and 50% of job seekers lie on their resumes. With times being so tough, the incentives to embellish in order to get a job, are high.

Many job seekers think it’s worth it if it helps their resume rise to the top. And many know that a high percentage of employers never bother to verify the information anyway.

Before you just accept the information on the resume or application, here are some tips to help you.

Even though companies are out of business, they leave a paper trail.

You can do an internet search and find information on the business.

For instance, I did a search for a company I used to work for and easily found that they merged with another business. Although they are out of business, principals still exist with the new entity, providing a contact for verification.

Another good resource is LinkedIn. Searching the name of the defunct company can provide contact names for people that worked there. Another good use of social media is to search for the applicant’s former supervisor or co-workers.

Probe the possibilities with your job applicant. Do they have names and contact info for vendors or customers that they can provide to you? Ask if they can provide letters of reference. If nothing else, can they give you a copy of their W-2 which would at least confirm their past employment.

Even if an employee no longer has their W-2, they can still get access to their employment records by contacting Employment Security. By completing this form people can obtain copies of their in-state employment. The same information can be obtained from the Social Security Administration.

Everyone’s familiar with third party providers who do pre-employment background checks. But some services are now popping up with a new twist: job seekers with pre-verified resumes.

Individuals can pay a third party to pre-verify their work history, education, and even run their own credit and background checks. The concept is for the job seeker to be able to present a verified background, giving the employer assurance that it’s accurate and saving the employer the time and money.

If you don’t believe resumes can be faked, just take a moment to search that topic on the Internet. There are many websites offering this service and advising job seekers on how to create a fake work history.

Whether you verify the information, or the job seeker has it done for you, taking this important extra step will undoubtedly save you heartache in the long run!


When can I expect my tax documents to arrive?

When do companies have to send out w2

We hear this a lot from our clients – when can I expect my tax documents to arrive?

In general, you will receive the easiest items to calculate first – your W-2s from your employer and your 1099 documents from your bank showing how much interest you made (which isn’t much right now!). You will likely receive many of these documents in January or early February.

For brokerage companies (i.e. TD Ameritrade, Schwab, Scottrade), it will take a bit longer. The reason is that they have to obtain and aggregate information from a number of different mutual fund companies. For example, if you have funds from American Funds, Vanguard, iShares, and First Trust, all of these funds will have separate tax information. The companies send this tax information to the brokerage company, who aggregates everything together in a 1099 form that the client receives. Usually the first 1099 will be received by mid to late February.

At that point, many people are looking at their taxes as being something they want to get off their plate, especially if they are getting a refund. One word of caution however – by filing right after the initial 1099 is received, you are taking some risk that you may have to refile. After the initial 1099s are sent out, many times there will be a second or third “corrected” 1099 that gets sent out. Sometimes this will contain material changes on it, so one should be careful not to file too early. Corrected 1099s can come out really at any time, but often will be sent by early March.

For those that have commodity or other “alternative” investments, some are classified as partnerships for tax purposes and may issue a K-1. K-1 forms are generally sent out later in the tax year and are required to be mailed by March 15th. Here is an explanation from Turbotax’s blog on K-1s: http://blog.turbotax.intuit.com/2011/01/03/what-is-a-schedule-k-1-form/.

For those that have investments, be careful on how early you file. Refiling could potentially be costly for you and take a bite out of your return! Hopefully you have done some tax and financial planning and you aren’t receiving a large refund. If you are, it is time to discuss with your tax professional how you can avoid this in the future.
