Your employer is required to provide or send Form W-2 to you no later than February 2, 2009. If you do not receive it by early February, use TeleTax topic 154 (see page 27) to find out what to do. Even if you do not get a Form W-2, you still must report your earnings on line 1. If you lose your Form W-2 or it is incorrect, ask your employer for a new one.
