Hey all, I worked for Roehl and Schneider this past year, but no longer work for either.

Neither company is releasing my W2 information, and I can't really get a solid response from either, past "it should've come already" (well, obviously) or "it should be in the mail", or they just ignore my calls altogether. Well, it's not. The only thing I got was tax info proving I had health insurance - and that's it. Why send one thing and not the other?

I can't log on to anything because I don't exist to them anymore.

Has anyone else run into these issues? What can I do?

Copied and pasted from the Interwebs:

Federal law requires all employers to send employees W-2 statements no matter how low earnings or wages are. These W-2 statements can be sent in either paper or digital form and must be received by employees no later than January 31 of the following year. Employers must also file a copy of employee W-2s with the IRS.

I have no idea why a company would not send you one. Maybe ask an accountant. Im sure they deal with this situation regularly.

You should have general phone numbers for the companies as a company driver. Call and get to the HR department. They should be able to email you a copy.

You can also get copies from the IRS.gov site. you need to provide a credit card to prove identity to get it electronically or have it mailed.

That date thing changes all the time. As a USPS employee, it was usually "Must be postmarked by Feb 3rd...or 2nd..or 1st" or whatever the date was that year. But the law said "postmarked" not "received".

Since both companies are very large, there's a good chance the information you seek is already on file with the IRS. If you file with turbotax, for example, adding the company's EIN in the appropriate box will likely pre-populate your numbers on your return. Of course, you can always call the human resources dept of each company and ask for a copy to be forwarded to you, either by mail or email.

Unfortunately, logged into IRS and even they had nothing. It's as if I never existed to begin with

Weird......Neither company has anything to gain by not providing a W2. I would take Errols advice and contact HR at both companies.

Okay, that's strange. Were you a contractor? Were you leasing a truck? Something's missing here. Have you contacted the payroll departments with this question about your W-2's?

Excellent point OS! If that is the case, he is looking for a 1099 not a W2.

I was a company driver. Also have contacted the companies who typically just give me the run around (I don't know, you should have got it by now)
