One of my jobs at work is payroll. As you all know, today is April 15th.
I ask you a simple question. Why do people think that I should stop EVERYTHING I am doing to get them another copy of their W/2 that was provided to them in January?!?!
I DID NOT procrastinate and wait to the last minute to complete my taxes and I DID NOT misplace my forms.
I DO on the other hand have my own work to complete on a deadline. All year long, I am more than happy to reprint check stubs when employees need them for car loans or mortgage refinancing. I have even reprinted up to 5 years of w/2's for child support cases. I understand there may be instances where you need a copy of a form, I am not unreasonable.
I sometimes wonder if I am working with adults or my children. Check stubs have social security numbers printed on them and employees just toss them in the garbage as if they are an old grocery list. I don't even want to know what happens to the W/2's that are lost.
I guess, I just wish people were more responsible. Is that asking too much?
