Form W-2 is very important for people when filing their tax return. Form W-2 is a tax form for employers to state how much they paid to their employees. Each employee will need a Form W-2. In some companies, people can get their Form W-2 online from their human resources or administrative departments.

There are often three ways to get your W-2 online:
If your company offers the online W-2, you may find a link in the email from your employer. You just need to follow the steps:
