One of my employers who I worked for last year is out of business. Does anybody know how I would be able to file, when I cannot get the tax information from them? I looked at the IRS FAQ page and it isnt mentioned, and all attempts to call are met with the "We will get back with you on that" response.
UNfortunately, no, I dont have that last stub. I never thought about it when I left the company back in march of last year. Somebody told me I could fill out a for that estimates me pay, since the company wont be submitting any info to the IRS any longer.
Well, in 2000 when I was getting my unemployment all setup, I was filling out forms for the lady and she brought up my file with my Soc. It shows who reported what amount as payment and when it was reported. Like each and every paycheck my old job paid me was all in the computer.
The IRS will have no problem looking at your Soc file, they just need your number and time to do it. It's all in their computer.
Side note. If you live in one state and work in another, you have a choice as to which state one can file for unemploymnt. I live in MD, but worked in DC, and I filed in DC becaause they paid $100 more a week than MD, and I made it stretch out the entire 6 months.
