I lost my last form of picture ID, and I don't think I have enough secondary forms to earn points for a new one because I'm paid under the table. Can I ask one of the companies for whom I once freelanced to send me an old W-2 form? Can they also send me old pay stubs?
I found my passport again after this
question and, because I'm a dummy, lost it again before I got around to getting a state ID. I realize that replacing a new passport is possible by getting a witness testify to my identity (my boyfriend or roommate can do this) but I'd like to at least to get an ID without spending $135 and waiting up to 6 weeks.
I've looked over the necessary forms of secondary evidence for a New York State ID
, and because I'm paid under the table (I know, I know, but it's a can of worms for another time), I don't have any W-2 forms, pay stubs, health insurance card, prescription card, anything. I have an old and relatively unofficial-looking access card to a building where I once worked, but it simply has my name, picture, and the company name on the badge. No scanning number or anything. And, for once in my life, none of our household utility bills are in my name.
We are putting one of the utility bills in my name, but right now all I have to earn the six points are: SSN card (2 points) and credit card (1 point). Assuming I get the utility bill put in my name, that's another point, putting me at 4.
If one of the companies for whom I freelanced sent me an old 1099 form, would that count? Can they also send me old pay stubs from 2009?
FWIW, I'm filing taxes for 2009 and 2010 next year and paying the money I owe in back taxes.
