Hi,

This happened to me, on a much smaller scale, back in 1974. I was working for someone who was supposedly withholding and submitting to the IRS. It turns out that they weren't. This was for only a 6 month period and they never provided a W2 or any other documentation. I filed my tax return reporting what were the facts, I got my tax refund as if the money had been collected and my SSA account was also credited with the earnings. The IRS did not try to collect anything from me. They went after the company.
So unless things have changed, I think you are probably okay.

JimA
