    I have received a W-2 for $17.

    An employer may issue a W-2 regardless, but must if any of the following applies (from the instructions):

    • You withheld any income, social security, or Medicare

    tax from wages regardless of the amount of wages; or

    • You would have had to withhold income tax if the

    employee had claimed no more than one withholding

    allowance or had not claimed exemption from withholding

    on Form W-4; or

    • You paid $600 or more in wages even if you did not

    withhold any income, social security, or Medicare tax.

    If you earn income- even one hour, they have to send you a W-2 form.

    You get a W2 if you worked and got paid for even 1 hour.

    If you receive a paycheck in 2019, you will get a 2019 W2 from that company.

    A company is not required to give you a W-2 unless you have made over $600.00.  If you made more than that, then they are supposed to send one to you.  If you did not make that amount, they are not required to send you a W2, but you should report that income anyway

      Wayne, there actually is a $600 rule for W-2s, though other rules requiring them to be issued usually trigger first.  See the W-2 instructions.

    The number of days has nothing to do with it. If you work enough that you get paid, then you also get a W-2. It could be just one day.

    If you were an employee and earned money, you should receive a W-2.
