So your employer is holding the net check? If this is the case, this means he remitted the withholding taxes and is only holding the net check portion of your money. So the withholding will be reported in your W-2 and you need to pick up that gross amount on your 1040. Even though you didnt get the net check at least you paid the taxes on the gross amount.

If he is giving you the "check is in the mail story" and he didnt remit the withholdings or your net check then it will not be reflected in your W-2 and then you will receive one in 2002.
