I never received a W-2 form. What should I do?

You are required to file your Ohio individual income tax return whether or not you have received your form W-2, wage and tax statement. Employers must mail W-2's to their employees by Jan. 31. If you haven't received your W-2 by Feb. 15, check with your employer to verify that it was sent to you at your current address.

If your employer is out of business or refuses to issue your W-2, you should report this information to the Internal Revenue Service at 1-800-829-1040.
