I left my last job last year at the end of a month. We were on a monthly pay schedule, getting paid for the previous month of employment. My employer promised me my last check and my W2 (since there would be no more paychecks, there wouldn't be any change to the W2, so he was going to print it out then). I never received my last check, nor my W2. We parted on "less than friendly" terms. I don't care about my last check, but I'm wondering, can I use my last pay stub to get the numbers I need for my W2? It lists all the taxes I paid, how much I was actually paid (i.e. without my final check), etc., which is all I need for the W2 info (I already have the EIN from a previous W2)
Can I use this last pay stub info? Or would there be a discrepancy if they claim they paid me my last check, which would be reflected on the W2, even though I never received the check, nor deposited it?
I'd really rather not have to bug them for my W2, and consequently, my last check.
EDIT This is in the USA, specifically new mexico, in case there are state laws people are aware of.
