The following was copied from the IRS web site www.irs.gov

After January 31st, if you want to file, but have not received your Form W-2, you should first contact your employer and find out if or when the W-2 was mailed. You may not have received your W-2 because of an incorrect or incomplete address, so be sure to verify your address.

If the W-2 was returned to the employer because of an address problem or was not yet issued, allow a reasonable amount of time for the employer to re-mail or issue the W-2. If you still do not receive your W-2, contact the IRS for assistance at 1-800-829-1040, but not before February 15th. When you call we will need the following information:

The employer's name and complete address, including zip code, their identification number (if known), and telephone number,
Your name, address, including zip code, social security number, and telephone number; and
An estimate of the wages you earned, the federal income tax withheld, and the dates you began and ended employment.
Form 4852, may be substituted for a missing Form W-2 but it should only be used to meet the filing deadline. If you file your return and attach Form 4852 instead of a W-2, your refund may be delayed while the information you gave us is verified.

If you receive a corrected W-2 after your return is filed and it does not match the income or withheld tax you reported on your return, you must file an amended return. For information on amending your return see Topic 308
