Why W-2 Files are Crucial

W-2 forms are actually essential part for a lot of people’s tax preparation process because it actually reports wages that are paid and taxes that are withheld by employers through the course of a year. A good advantage about it than other tax-related forms is that you don’t really need to fill out a W-2 form. You will just receive it and then use it.

One of the things which you should know is that you are actually not the only one that the employer prepares the W-2 form. The IRS, you and also the Social Security Administration usually gets a copy of it, which makes it unwise if you will think of under-reporting your wages or perhaps over-reporting taxes that are withheld. You also need to be aware that you would expect a W2 form when you are an employee and also earned a certain amount or perhaps more or when you have any amount withheld. If you earn money as an independent contractor, you will expect a 1099 form than the W-2 from an employer as long as you are making more than their specified amount.

If you receive a W-2 form which the employer need you to send by the end of January, you will then get multiple copies of it. This is so you could keep one as your record and include a copy with the federal tax return and your local, city or your state tax return.

It is very important that you do reviews on your W-2 form in order to make sure that the information is correct. Whenever your name is misspelled or perhaps your Social Security number is missing or perhaps wrong, the IRS will be having troubles in matching up the records on what you have earned and paid on what you are reporting. It could delay the processing of your return as well as trigger an audit.

Why is it Essential?

You may be aware that those that are actually self-employed should make estimated tax payments throughout the year and you probably may assume that unlike it, there’s really no need for you to pay the taxes until April 15. This however is not the case. This is the reason why employees will also make regular tax payments throughout the year. This actually is what happens if the employer withholds taxes from your paycheck. They are actually withheld and is then sent to the IRS.

This actually is the reason why you should take care and understand your W-2 form because it helps determine if you will get a tax refund check on that year and on how big it’s going to be.
