Traverse City, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/03/2015 -- Traverse City Tax Preparation Examiner Frank Ellis has published an article revealing where taxpayers can find the 2014, 2015 W2 form online. One of the most important tax documents, the author and tax specialist reveals, it should be received by taxpayers from the companies they work for. The form typically comes in the mail before January 31.
To get the form online, Ellis says, employers have to make it available, or work through a payroll service. Having the form online saves time and cuts out some extra steps to filing taxes. Other benefits highlighted include preventing paper forms from going to the wrong address, filing sooner because the form is accessible online much earlier, and email notifications when it is available.
Forms can be downloaded and printed any time. That's another part the author says helps taxpayers because the W2 is much harder to lose. Ellis also urges taxpayers to check their information is accurate before printing the form and using it to file this season's taxes.
Also emphasized is the importance of correcting inaccurate information. People will have to contact their employer to fix the issue and it's important an employer sends the W2 so it is filed with the IRS. Another thing is eligibility. Some employers don't offer the form online so taxpayers need to be sure they have the online option.
Frank Ellis also explains that TurboTax & H&R Block software makes it easy to import W2 information, get a larger refund, and pay the least possible. An online tax refund calculator is also good because people can easily know what they owe or will get back, to plan ahead.
