What do I do about an inaccurate W2?

Tags: inaccurate  W2  

I received a W2 form stating that I worked a few hours at a business in 2017. I supposedly earned $42. However this isn't correct. I did work at this place in 2016 for a few months, but that was all. I called the IRS and they told me to contact the bu

Answers:

You may have received your last paycheck in 2017. Since it's only $42 it's not worth the hassle to try to get it corrected even if it is wrong. Just include it on your tax return.

$42? Just don't file it with your taxes. The IRS isn't going to care one way or another.

It's probably not inaccurate. It doesn't say how much you earned in 2017. It says how much you were PAID in 2017 that you earned at any time in your life. The $42 is probably that you earned in 2016 and were paid in 2017.

In any case, what you should do is to stop calling and instead send a written letter by certified U.S. mail, return receipt requested, without calling.

Send them a letter.

Was your last day in late 2016 but you got paid one check is 2017, maybe just for your last day? If so, then it's right.

If you worked to the end of the year, you might have only the $42.oo in 2017. Just use it. $42.00 won't make or break you.

I believe the W-2 is correct. It is not when you WORKED but when you are PAID. You don't get paid on the last day of your pay period, you get paid a week after. You could have worked those few hours at the end of 2016 but not been paid for them until 2017, in which case, you get a W-2 for 2017. Your W-2 for 2016 would NOT have included this income.

Is it possible that you left this business near the end of 2016 and forgot that a partial paycheck was paid in the beginning of 2017?

It is only $42. Depending on your total income for the year, that $42 may or may not even change the amount of taxes you owe. If it does change the amount of taxes you owe, then it shouldn't be by very much. If there is an amount in box 2 of that W-2, then it might even add to your refund depending on what your total income was.

You didn't list your total income so there is no way to tell you exactly what that $42 will do to your tax return but it really probably isn't worth trying to fix.

If this W-2 for $42 says that it is for 2017, then include it on 2017 tax return and forget it.
