A question to former employees about W-2s
So I haven’t worked at Target in close to a year now. It’s a long story for those of you who are new to this site but long story short it’s a very stupid reason. It was a blessing in disguise though. Anyways tax season is upon us. I’d like to get a head start on filing my taxes so I can go back to school and earn my degree I was working hard for. I am very determined to go back, but filing a FAFSA requires tax info from the previous year. So Id like to know from former employees if they got their final W2 from Target on time or if Target was a bully about it. I know it is illegal to not give a former employee their W2 but Target strikes me as the type of company that would be a bully about it and mail it to you late or worse. I’d like to know ahead of time if they are cooperative about it or if they act like typical scum about it. I’m tired of fooling with them. When I was searching for a job last summer, they gave bad references to most of the jobs I applied for which is illegal. Then when I caved in and tried getting unemployment(which I didn’t want to do since I was so determined to get a job but I had bills to pay) they were jerks about it then. They told unemployment that I had quit on spot. When I tried appealing I was told I had to get Target to agree that I was let go and I didn’t resign. So at first I thought Target was going to cooperate with this then two days later, one of my former LODs calls me from there and gets nasty with me on the phone. Says unemployment is for “Welfare Queens” and said that flipping burgers at McDonalds would be too good for me and kept insulting me and saying why can’t I just get a real job instead of filing for unemployment. Then I said maybe I could if you all would stop giving false statements to other potential employers about me then she hunk up on me. I have a new job now btw. Though stuff like what I went through with trying to get a new job and eventually attempting to file for unemployment makes me think they could be jerks about my W2. I’d like to get my taxes done as soon as possible so I can fill out my FAFSA for school and avoid being audited. So if they don’t cooperate I’ll not only report them to the IRS, I’ll sue. I’m done playing games with them. Another reason I’m looking forward to getting W2s from them, that should be the last time I ever have to deal with the motherfuckers. No more mail or phone calls from them!
