I didn't previously tell him, no. I just asked him today and that is what he said in return. But he is a bigot, so I don't mind seeing him squirm.
I told him I am working as a tax preparer and filing 2 separate returns is illegal (which it is).
He just got back with me saying "My response may have been hairsh - for that I apologize. However, I don't see where I need to spend time and resources to fix what I did correctly. I hope all is well with you and that you get this sorted out"
To which I said "I will gladly send you a few dollars for the trouble to avoid asking the IRS what I should do. If you would like any other proof to show I am not doing this for any nefarious reasons, I will gladly provide that. Thank you for the fair wishes and I hope the same for you and your family also."
Furthermore, I've been on the IRS.gov website. It specifically says the W2 information needs to match your current Social Security number. Like I said, I'm on hold with the IRS now, so we will see.
Lastly, their site says if they refuse to send the corrected W2, I need to call the IRS and they will send me a complaint form, which I need to send to them. Each form they have to investigate will be followed up by a $100 fine.
