How long does it take the IRS to send you a copy of your 2018 W2?

The IRS doesnt get your W-2. The forms are sent to the Social Security Administration. If you need the information from your W-2, you can ask for a transcript from the IRS but it wont have information about the withholding of state and local taxes. A transcript takes up to 6 weeks to get in the mail.
