    This is interesting. Today I open my mail, and I got a "Corrected Wage and Tax Statement" W2 from my company. However, the "corrected information" states that I only made $6,000 last year! :eek: Lets just say I make considerably more than $6,000 a year working a full-time, 40-hour a week job with a very nice salary. What the hell??? There is no other information included, just three copies of this "Corrected Wage and Tax Statement". Any accountants care to share an opinion? What the freaking heck do I do???

    Start by asking the company.

    We got a corrected W-2 a couple of years ago when the company learned that the new HSA health plan hadn't been correctly reflected on the original W-2s.

    I'm not an accountant but I'd say to contact HR at your company. Someone screwed up - these days, all it takes is hitting a wrong button on the computer to wreak havoc. I'm sure you weren't the only one who got one of these but you need to have HR correct it.
