No W-2's From Dead Dot Coms

from the good-luck dept

Many laid off dot com workers now have to deal with the fact that their former employers don’t exist at all any more – meaning they may not send out a W-2 form to be used in filing taxes. Some bankrupt companies are still sending them out, but for many companies where there’s absolutely nothing left, it’s likely that no W-2s will get sent. Then, the former employees need to figure out things on their own. I’d guess that the IRS will be a bit more forgiving than usual this year, but it’s still going to be very annoying for a lot of people.
