  • I worked at a place once for only a few hours. I only got paid like 12 bucks. I never even cashed the check. They sent me a w-2 & I threw it out & never filed it. That was about 18 yrs ago so I figure if they were going to "get" me for it, they'd have already done it!

  • if you know it's $8 you can put that on without having th w-2 itself especially if you efile. Or you could leave it off. Doubt it would be a big deal.

  • If you earned less than $600 from a single source, you do not need to report it.

  • It's law that they have to have the info to you by the 31st so why not just wait a few days?

  • If it is that small of an amount they may not send you a w-2 they dont have to under a certain amount and you dont have to use it under a certain amount
