If you’re a new Walmart employee getting ready to submit your first tax return since being hired by the retailer, you’ll need to know how to get Walmart W2.
And if you’ve left your job at Walmart, you’ll still need to get a W-2 from the retailer that covers the income you received as an employee.
Obtaining your W2 form is an essential part of preparing your tax return and getting your tax refund each year.
Your W-2 form is a statement of your earnings from your employer and how much withholding tax they’ve paid on your behalf. The W-2 form is prepared and issued by your employer.
We’ve prepared a simple guide for you so you can get this essential piece of tax prep work done.
When Does Walmart Issue W-2 Forms?
All employers are legally required to issue your W-2 form on or before January 31st each year. Your Walmart W-2 may be available shortly before that date, but January 31st is the legal deadline.
If it’s January 31st and you haven’t received your Walmart W-2 yet, don’t panic. Employers are still technically within the law if they mail your W-2 on January 31st.
Wait another day or two to see if your W-2 arrives.
If January 31st falls on a weekend, forms may be delayed by a couple of days.
