Tax Website Reveals How to Get a W-2 Form Online

An article has been recently published on that explains how people can get their W-2 forms on the Internet. Tax preparation planner and expert Frank Ellis reveals any business that employs someone must send the form by January 31. Some can get their W2 form online sooner than that.
