I know, I'm a goof - but when I did them last week, I just wanted them gone.
So I bundled them into an envelope, licked and stamped (opened again because I forgot to sign - did I mention I'm a goof?) and then sent

I realized yesterday that I forgot to enclose my W2s do I
1) send seperate, no copy of taxes
2) Dont send, dont worry - keep handy in case of an audit.
3) Panic, call IRS and find out how to send
4) send with copy of tax forms

My taxes are fairly straight forward. Salary, ROTH IRA and a few other investments. HELP!

I would not recommend filing another return or sending in the W-2's.

Just have them on hand.

You will probably get a letter from the IRS stating that you did not include your W-2's and requesting them. When that letter comes, return the letter with the W-2.

I'll go you one better: I forgot to enclosed *all* of our various tax statements (W2s, brokerage interest, student loan interest, mortgage int., etc.).

Should I also sit back and wait for the letters of request to pour in, or should I do something else since I managed to leave out virtually everything except the actual return and the check?

Argh!

You don't need to enclose statements from your mortgage co., banks, brokers, etc. The IRS gets all that info directly from the source. Keep those copies in your records for yourself. You just need to include your W-2. So you didn't leave out at much as you thought you did!

Generally, the only items you need to attach to your return are W-2's (always) and other items (such as 1099's) IF they show income tax withheld.

Well, it's good to know I'm not the bumbler I thought I was.

I think I'll give the IRS hotline a call anyway just to see what they say.

Thanks, all...
