Okay, so it’s not quite tax time, but it’s really not too early for a reminder about preparing to do your taxes.
Specifically, I want to talk about your W-2’s.
W-2‘s are among the most important form you’ll need to complete your taxes. Your W-2 comes from your employer(s), and the reason it’s so important is because it tells the IRS where you worked, how much you earned, how much you paid in taxes and more.
To prepare your taxes you will need to collect a W-2 from each employer you worked for within the year. Employers are required to send them to employees by the end of January following the end of a calendar year.
If it’s February and you still haven’t received your W-2 you’ll want to chat with your employer to get it.
If you’re using H&R Block to prepare your taxes you can actually use the H&R Block W-2 Finder online. It allows you to get your W-2 sent electronically to H&R Block quickly and securely.
