Employees receive W-2 forms each year as proof of wages paid and taxes withheld by their employer for the previous calendar year. You may be asked to provide a W-2 from the most recent year to verify monthly income. In some cases, you also may be asked to provide the W-2 for the previous year.

For all documents you’re asked to provide:
- Make sure the copies you send are legible.
