11234Re: [tips_and_tricks] Rebutting W-2s and 1099s
- Jun 2, 2006W2's are not sent directly to the IRS. As I understand the process, the company issuing the W2 for each "employee" sends all W2's at one time with a W3. The W3 is called "Transmittal of Wage and Tax Statements" and contains the signature of the company representative under a jurat, testifying to its accuracy. However, the W3 instructs the issuer to send them to the Social Security Administration, not to the IRS. The IRS most likely gets a computer transcript from SSA for all W2's, which would be why they can't produce the original. What SSA does with the original W2's and W3 is unknown, but they may destroy it after entering the data as the IRS does.
When I requested all copies of W2's and 1099's from the IRS with form 4506T they sent transcripts of the W2's but a copy of the original 1099. It could be because there were no taxes withheld for the amount paid.

I have a question. How is the W-2 sent to the IRS? In what format or what form is used to transmit the W-2 to the IRS? Thanks
