Last year (2012) I worked for a startup through May before moving on. Between May and now (March 2013) I have moved twice. Neither time did I think to update the old employer so that they could send me my W2. Also, since then, the company has gone belly up.
The company was very small, and never had a proper HR department. They also did not use a payroll company. I only have one phone number for a former manager at the company (we never had a 'corporate' phone number) and I'm not receiving any response when contacting him (calling or texting).
So my question: What do I do now? I don't have a W2, I need one to fill out my taxes, if they sent one it was sent to the wrong address, and even if I get a hold of my one contact from the company there is a good chance he won't be able to do anything for me.
As a note: I have looked for my old pay-stubs, but like I said I've moved twice since then and am unable to find them. I have since learned to keep much better track of financial documents! However.... that lesson has come a little too late for this situation.
