Q:

When are W2 forms due to employees?

A:

Quick Answer

As a general rule of the Internal Revenue Service, a W2 form must be provided to an employee no later than Jan. 31 for the preceding year. A former employee is provided a W2 on that date as well, unless that individual requests to receive it earlier. Typically, such a request comes when a person is terminated.
