Don't let a refund get lost or returned to the Internal Revenue Service.
Taxpayers should add the IRS to their list of people and places to notify
about their change of address. If the IRS doesn�t have their current address,
then a tax refund or any letters about past returns may never get to them.
Fill out IRS Form 8822 and
send it to the IRS.
Employers have until February 1, 1999, to issue a Form W-2 to each
employee. Employees should check with their employers if they don�t have
the W-2 within a couple days after that. If they still don�t get the W-2
by February 15, they may call the IRS for help at 1-800-829-1040.
Tax Withholding on Government
People who get certain government payments can choose to have federal
income tax withheld from them. Doing so can eliminate the need to file
and pay quarterly estimated taxes.
Those who get unemployment compensation, Social Security or tier
1 railroad retirement benefits, Commodity Credit Corporation loans or certain
crop disaster payments can make this choice. Fill out Form
W-4V, "Voluntary Withholding Request," and give one to each payer from
which you get these types of payments. Call 1-800-829-3676 to get the form
or download here.
