I moved to a different state last year for work and I have been going back and forth with my previous employer, trying to get my W-2 from him.
I reminded him in early January that I needed the W-2 and notified him of my new address. I did not receive it by the end of January and per the IRS, I waited until February 15th and contacted him again, asking if it was mailed or if I could get a scanned copy. He responded by sending me a cellphone photo of Copy B (To Be Filed With Employee's FEDERAL Tax Return) and stated it had been mailed and that I would also receive a scanned copy.
Fast-forward a week, I still have not received a physical or scanned copy of the W-2. I even checked at my old address (rental property owned by my parents) and that address has not received it either. I know the regulations for distributing W-2s state that Copies B, C, and 2 have to be sent to employees, but my question is: Is a picture of Copy B enough for me to file taxes? If not, how should I proceed?
