My wife and I had been seeing all of the horror stories last season with the massive delays and kept hearing that we needed to file early, so we went to our HR personnel at our jobs to try to get information before w2’s were sent out. They gave up bad information.
We used the information that we received to file 1/7, which was accepted 1/18, and just processed yesterday, 3/18 to a 570 code.
I know that the information on the w2’s is wrong, not only the amount, but also the EIN’s. The income is off by like a little over $200.
I know that the 570 code has to be for wage verification, will the IRS verify what they have with what I submitted and make corrections? Am I looking at months of drawn out back and forth with my having to provide information? Or, am I ultimately going to have to file an amendment?
I’ve never been in this situation and hopefully will never be again. It was an incredibly stupid thing to do, I know.
Can anyone provide any knowledge or experience for my situation? I’d appreciate it.
