Find your W-2 online. File your taxes faster.
Wondering how you can get a copy of your W-2 online? With H&R Block’s free W-2 Early Access℠ service, you can get your W-2 online for free and have an electronic copy sent to your local H&R Block office. All you have to do is pick it up — then get a head start on your taxes.
Earlier access = earlier refund.
W-2 forms are sent out by January 31st of each year (or the next business day if the date falls on a weekend or holiday). But your refund doesn’t have to depend on how quickly your employer mails your W-2. If you want to get your W-2 online, you can request an electronic copy for free with W-2 Early Access, then get started on your taxes with Block.
Don’t wait for your W-2 to come in the mail.
There is no charge for W-2 Early Access!
Your W-2 is stored safely with H&R Block.
Get your W-2 in three easy steps.
With H&R Block’s W-2 Early Access, we’ve made it simple to find a copy of your W-2 online for free, so you can get your taxes checked off the list. As long as your employer is part of H&R Block’s partner program, you can access your W-2.
Find your employer
We have thousands of employers in our database. You can search your employer’s name or Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN).
Request a copy
When you find your employer, follow the instructions to have an electronic copy of your W-2 form sent to your local H&R Block office.*
Pick up your W-2
Once we receive your W-2, it will be stored securely at your local H&R Block office. When you come to pick it up, be sure to bring two forms of ID.

Become an import partner.
If you represent a financial institution, payroll provider, or you’re simply an employer, consider becoming an H&R Block import partner. Doing so will benefit your employees or customers by providing them early access to W-2 or 1099 forms.
