    Aren't employers required to have employee's W-2s out by the end of January? None of us at the company where I work have gotten ours yet. Just wondering if there's a fine or penalty for non-compliance.

    Thanks... KJP

    I think they have to have it mailed out by the end of January (I keep thinking Jan 29th, anybody know the exact date) but that doesn't mean you will receive it by the end of January. I received mine on Saturday, Feb 2nd and since there's no mail on sunday, I'd perhaps see if you get it today as perhaps it got delayed. In any case, you should be able to talk to your payroll deptment/person and fellow employees to see if they got their's yet and if payroll mailed it out...

    I think they have to be mailed out by the 31st or the IRS can penalize them. Give it a couple more days.

    I'll definitely check the postmark when I get mine. Nothing like waiting until the last minute, but then that's the company I work for... [​IMG]
