<< My former employer ran back to Canada (closing its only US site) w/o paying me my last paycheck (only $400) and owing hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt to suppliers. There is no way to track the owner down easily and thus no W-2. Money was withheld from my paychecks (the ones I did receive) for taxes but I'm sure that since they were only in operation 3 months in this country and fraud is a key word here the IRS will get nothing from them. I don't want to be "double taxed" for taxes falsely withheld and wonder if there is any way to get back the money owed. Should I "bite the bullet" here and simply not report the (rather small) income I did earn so as to avoid further penalties? >>

Call 1-800-829-4477 and listen to topic 154.
