  • I believe it is the law. But I do not think they execute those that miss the deadline.

  • yes, fines will be put in place if they do not and you can sue for some maximum amount of money, which is pretty high. They may have mailed them by the 31'st give 2-3days for them to get to you.

  • I believe it is. They get snail mailed by the 31st. We were able to look ours up online a bit early, but couldn't file till the w-2's were officially out,

  • Supposedly. I just got my last form (actually a 1099G) yesterday from the state. Now, I can go get my taxes done!

  • Yes, it is. If you haven't gotten yours, contact your HR department.
