IRS Tax Forms
Form 4852 | Substitute for Form W-2 and 1099-R
Fill out Form 4852 in absence of your W-2 or 1099-R. Use your pay stubs or other documents and receipts to verify your income that was supposed to be reported on these information returns. Take note that to file your federal income tax return using Form 4852, you must file a paper tax return. This is due to how Form 4852 is filed. Since it cannot be filed electronically, a paper tax form must be filed.
