  • W2's have to be shipped out no later than the 30th of Jan I believe. So no later than the first week of Feb. You can file as soon as you get it.

  • Legally, they must be mailed no later than January 31. You can file your tax return as soon as you have all of your backups.

  • Yep they have to be postmarked by the 31st of Jan so if the company waits, and they usually do, you should see it by the first couple of days of Feb. Once you get that and have all your other paperwork, then youre good. File online, its so much easier and faster.
