How problematic is it if my W-2 has a wrong address?

I resigned from my Washington, DC employer in September 2015. At the time, I was living in Virginia, and for the past 5 years had been paying VA state taxes. 2 weeks later, I moved to Maryland. I just received my W-2 from the DC firm, and it lists my Maryland address, even though I never filed a new W-4, and I never lived in Maryland during the time I worked for my DC employer. Everywhere else it indicates Virginia as the state, Virginia state income tax, etc. How problematic is it if my address is incorrect? [more inside]

Small Business question regarding correcting a W2

So, I sent the W3 and W2s to SSA for 2015. Today I get a call from a employee who tells me his SSN is incorrect on his W2. He did tell me he had not filed his taxes yet. I use Quickbooks Payroll Service and have access to the Annual Form W2C & W3C to make these corrections. I corrected the employee's SSN and start to process this form but am confused about filling it out - 1. It ask has corrections been made in Quickbooks? Well, YES to the SSN - is that what I need to check or would it be NO due to no changes on the wages, etc? 2. If I check NO it leaves all the wages, etc blank. I do check that it is a correction of the SSN but doesn't the employee need his wages, etc to show in this W2C? 3. If I check YES it then loads the Previous amount of wages, etc. Am I suppose to put anything in the Corrected Amount box? Quickbooks makes a statement to put 0.00 in the corrected fields if no corrections, but that doesn't look right to me - looks like I am telling them it is 0.00 now? [more inside]

W2 shows old address. Employer says it's fine. Is it?

You are not my lawyer, or tax preparer. I have been working at the same company for a few years. In September of 2014, I moved. I asked my employer what I needed to do to make sure my file was updated with the correct address, and was told to add the new address to the HR portal, which I did. A couple of weeks ago, my W2 forms were sent to my old address. Fortunately they were returned to the office. I asked HR if I can get updated forms and was told "you don’t need a corrected W2 for an address change. You will be able to file your taxes without an issue with the address and enter your own address for your return." [more inside]

How can I get back my self employment tax?

I spent almost all of 2015 working full-time for a big company through a temp agency, but the temp agency misclassified me as a contractor. This means that I'm on the hook for self employment tax, which is 7.65% of the year's income! I'd like to avoid paying that tax. What's the best way to do it? [more inside]

Multiple interviews in one week... How to handle current job?

Hi all! Around 6 months ago, I took on a contracting/freelance (they use the terms interchangeably) position at a large company. Sadly, they have no intention on making the position permanent for any of the contractors in our department; this is in addition to me feeling the company isn't the right fit for me. As a result, I've started applying to other jobs. It's going surprisingly well and I've nailed down two interviews thus far... the problem, you may ask? How the heck do I get time away from my existing job? [more inside]

Am I crazy or are they purposely ignoring me?

I feel insane for even posting about this, but my (ever-so-slight) anxiety is getting the best of me! Around two months ago, I accepted a job with a great company. It is what they are calling a "W2 contractor" position. So, I'm a W2 employee where they take care of deducting taxes from my paycheck for me, but I don't receive any health benefits, PTO, etc. etc. I'm paid hourly, and my hourly wage is well above the norm, I'm guessing to help offset the lack of benefits. Some weeks I work 40 hours, others I work 15 or so... it depends on the workload available. Essentially, it's kind of like being a part time employee. [more inside]

Has anyone done freelance graphic design for American Eagle Outfitters?

Hey everyone! I've got a tough decision in front of me... I am lucky enough to be in a position where I have to choose between two job offers. One of these companies is American Eagle Outfitters and I would be working as a graphic designer in the corporate office in Pittsburgh. The other job is at yet another big PGH company, but for a slightly different position. I know people that work or have worked for the second company, so I've got the scoop on that option... However, I don't have any "inside info" on working for AE. Essentially, my position at AE is being called a "freelance" job, but I'd be working in the office 5 days a week with varying hours (and I'd be a W2 employee). That is a bit confusing to me, as (through personal experience) the words "freelance" and "W2" usually don't go hand-in-hand. ;) Anyway, sorry... rambling! Has anyone here "freelanced" for AE Corporate in the past and can give me some info on how it went/what it was like/etc.? I've got a big decision to make by end of day Monday!

Retirement planning for the W2 contractor

Independent contractor, working for several recruiting firms as a W2 employee, but on a contract-by-contract basis (so my employer may change once or twice a year). Can I do pre-tax withholding for retirement if these employers don't have a 401k (of any kind)? [more inside]

Questions on Bizarre W-2

I was filing my taxes online when I saw my W-2 was extra confusing. The online tax website even flagged the data I entered saying there were probably errors. I'll talk with my employer about this if necessary, but is it actually invalid information or just unusual circumstances? I've provided all the information I could think was relevant. [more inside]

1099 contract when I was told I'd be w2, how do I navigate this?

On Tuesday I drove across country to start a new role in the Bay Area. Prior to this I was working on a year-long contract which wasn't renewed. During the interview process I was looking for a full time role, but was convinced that this was a good opportunity, particularly to get my foot in the door back in the Bay Area where I'm originally from and still have family. During the interview I was asked specifically what type of contracting I would be open to and said that I was only interested in W2ing to a new role rather than becoming an independent contractor and billing, and I stated that I wasn't interested in 1099ing. The rate I provided reflected this as well. Turns out I've been onboarded as a 1099 and the rate that I was looking for as a W2. [more inside]

Help me undersand taxes. Where did my refund go?

I need help understanding taxes. I have a very standard tax situation, with two W2s as a result of a mid-year job change. I left Job A three weeks into January 2013 and started Job B two weeks afterwards. I entered my info into TurboTax. Job B: ~$800 refund. Job A: ~-$800 refund. Now I'm back at 0. I'm confused and disappointed, and apparently I don't have any ideas how taxes work. [more inside]

Very late W-2

My employer has not given me my W-2. I've contacted the IRS, and gotten a substitute form that I have to fill out myself, but since I was never given paystubs, (tax information was usually written on the paycheck itself, and, being silly.lazy, I didn't photocopy my checks,) I have to guess at the amount I owe. I'm also concerned about filing for Arizona income tax, but when I called them they said I don't need a W-2, which dosen't make much sense. I've gotten the run-around from my employer (the company owner,) with her blaming the accountant. I want my W-2, but I also think they deserve some sort of punishment/sanction for this. What can I do?
