Why are there more W2's filed than 1040's?

Lots of reasons. First off, there are joint returns for married people. Then, any single person who changed jobs will get separate W-2 forms for each employer they had. Then, any person who worked two or more jobs at the same time will get multiple W-2s. W-2s are specific to an employer-employee relationship.
