Form W-2 and Form 1099 Guide for
ADP is here to help as much as we can, but for most questions regarding Form W-2, Form 1099 and
other tax issues, we recommend you speak with your payroll or benefits department.
What to Expect
Your employers are required to provide you with Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. Form W-2 must be mailed out or hand-delivered to you no later than January 31st.
You can view your W-2 online by logging in to your ADP product after January 31.

- Forgot your login information? Recover your user ID and password here.
- Locked out of your account? Wait 5 minutes and try again, or ask your employer’s payroll or HR contact to reset your password.

What if the information on my W-2 is wrong?
If there’s an error on your W-2, please ask your employer’s payroll or HR contact for help.
How do I access my W-2 from a previous employer?
If you are unable to view your paystub or W2 by logging in to your ADP account, you’ll need to contact your former employer. For W-2s, you may also contact the IRS.
What if I haven’t received my W-2 or 1099?
If you have not received your Form W-2 or Form 1099, please contact your employer to learn if and when the W-2 was delivered. If it was mailed, it may have been returned to your employer because of an incorrect or incomplete address. If you do not receive your W-2 by February 15th, you can call the IRS at 800-829-1040.
My Form W-2 or 1099 information is incorrect. Who do I contact?
If your Form W-2 or 1099 information is incorrect, please contact your employer to make the change. Examples of wrong information would be an incorrect Social Security Number, incorrect name, or incorrect wages. If your attempts to have a Form W-2 corrected by your employer are unsuccessful and it is after February 15th, contact the IRS at 800-829-1040.
I need a W-2 or 1099 from employer who has gone out of business. What do I do?
If your former employer is no longer in business, they are still obligated to provide you with a W-2. If you still do not receive your W-2 by February 15th, you can call the IRS at 800-829-1040.
If you decide to call the IRS after February 15th, it will be helpful to have your last paystub available which should include your employer’s Employer Identification Number (EIN).
Please note: ADP does not provide W-2s to current or former employees of ADP clients.
