On this segment, we're going to talk about filing your taxes without waiting for your W-2. In past years, some tax practitioners would try to figure your taxes from your check stub year-to-date. It's a no-no now. You can't do it. It's been outlawed. So now you have to wait for that W-2. Your employer is obligated to mail that out by January 31st. Hopefully you'll get it timely and then you can do your taxes. Thank you very much.
