I would have to advise on calling the local employment centre and see if they can offer any assistance, go to www.irs.gov in order to get the toll free number. You will then have the chance to talk to a live representative. Or you can access the state government website and go to the state Department of Labor, which administers the unemployment compensation program.

There are various states who will allow the recipients of unemployment compensation to download the Form 1099-G direct from the website. The actual form, W-2, is a Wage and Tax Statement which is generally used as an information return in order to report salaries that are directly remunerated to employees and the taxes withheld from them.

Employees need to fill in a W-2 form to which they pay a salary, wage, or other compensation accordingly. As an employer, they are obliged to post the Form W-2 to employees on or before January 31.

If an employee has a job in more than one state in the US then the majority of employers will print out several redundant W-2 sheets to report the pay divided out to each state. Yet there are actually some employers who will print multiple rows of states on each and every one of the W-2 copies. The actual W-2 form is made up of six copies from A to F and it is up the responsibility of employers to send back B, C, and two additional copies to their employees by the end of January of each calendar year.

This particular deadline enables taxpayers around three months to file and prepare their returns before the deadline of April 15 when income tax is due.

You have to wait for them to mail them, they are not accessible online.  By law they must be postmarked by 1/31/10.  I live in TN and do not have mine yet and many other people I know are in the same boat.  Hopefully they will go out by 1/29/10.

Try their website, but you should already have your W2, they were mailed out 2 weeks ago.  The website can give you your year to date earnings.
