For the latest information about developments related to Form 4852, such as legislation enacted after it was published, go to www.irs.gov/Form4852. Purpose of form. Form 4852 serves as a substitute for Forms W-2, W-2c, and 1099-R and is completed by you or your representatives when (a) your employer or payer doesn’t issue you a Form W-2 or Form 1099-R or (b) an employer or payer has issued an incorrect Form W-2 or Form 1099-R. Attach this form to the back of your income tax return before any supporting forms or schedules. You should always attempt to get your Form W-2, Form W-2c, or Form 1099-R from your employer or payer before contacting the IRS or filing Form 4852. If you don’t receive the missing or corrected form from your employer or payer by the end of February, you may call the IRS at 800-829-1040 for assistance. You must provide your name, address (including ZIP code), phone number, social security number, and dates of employment. You also must provide your employer’s or payer’s name, address (including ZIP code), and phone number. The IRS will contact your employer or payer and request the missing form. The IRS also will send you a Form 4852. If you don’t receive the missing form in sufficient time to file your income tax return timely, you may use the Form 4852 that the IRS sent you. For Paperwork Reduction Act Notice, see page 2. If you received an incorrect Form W-2 or Form 1099-R, you should always attempt to have your employer or payer issue a corrected form before filing Form 4852. Note: Retain a copy of Form 4852 for your records. To help protect your social security benefits, keep a copy of Form 4852 until you begin receiving social security benefits, just in case there is a question about your work record and/or earnings in a particular year. After September 30 following the date shown on line 4, you may use your Social Security online account to verify wages reported by your employers. Please visit www.SSA.gov/myaccount. Or, you may contact your local SSA office to verify wages reported by your employer. Will I need to amend my return? If you receive a Form W-2, Form W-2c, or Form 1099-R after your return is filed with Form 4852, and the information you receive indicates that the information reported on your original return is incorrect, you must amend your return by filing Form 1040X, Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. You are responsible for filing your income tax return with accurate information regardless of whether you receive a Form W-2, Form W-2c, or Form 1099-R and regardless of whether the information on any forms received is correct.
