W2/tax question

Filed: Citizen (pnd) Country: Germany

Hi all,

I hope someone out there is may-be working in tax prep or similar and can point us in the right direction, as the IRS doesn't want to help us and we stay clueless.

My husband has received a W2 from an employer which showed the following mistakes:

1. the state in the address was incorrect

2. it showed an incorrect state in the state tax line.

We've called the employer and requested a correction. What we have received:

a new W2, not a W2c, still sporting the wrong state in the address, which the employer tried to "hide" by putting white-out over it.

Furthermore the state tax line, now shows the correct state, but doesn't mention the employer state ID.

We have repeatedly tried to get a hold of the employer, but they seem to be incapable to help us.

They said they won't be able to send us a new W2 for another 2 weeks.

We have tried to contact them again, and our voice mails remain unanswered.

So now my question:

Can we use this incorrect W2 to file our taxes? Should we ask for an extension and wait till may-be the correct W2 comes through?

Is there any legal instance that we can report an uncooperative employer like this?

As mentioned we have contacted the IRS and they don't want to answer any of our questions... so you guys are my last resort!

Any answers appreciated!
