Recent Employer Filed Bankruptcy

by LuckyBOOO

What will happened if my recent employer went bankcrupt earlier this year. Do I still get a w-2 form from them?

Thank you for your question about your recent employer filing bankruptcy.

Even if your employer filed bankruptcy, they are still required to file all pertinent tax forms for wages paid out during the year.

If you do not end up receiving your W-2 from them and are not able to get in contact with anyone, you are required to file the information yourself using the year to date information from your last paycheck stub.
