It has been a long time since I worked as an employee. Recently, I received my W-2 for the corporate job I had until recently. Now I have a question for the BAD Community.
Why is the amount listed in Box #1 labeled Wgs, tips, other compn different than the amount listed in Box #3 labeled Social security wages? Box #1 lists $49,072.10 and Box #3 lists $51,818.26, I don’t understand why the amounts are different.
Can someone please advise? I looked back thru my old W-2s and I don’t have any where these amounts are different. (Granted the last one was some years back; I’m not sure what has changed since then.)
Unemployment Benefits Update
My application for unemployment benefits has now been escalated to the tax department (or something like that.) I’ve had to submit a 10 page questionnaire, copies of my W-2, paystubs from this year, copy of my bank records with deposits from them and so much more. It was a beast to get it altogether. As far as I can tell, they are evaluating whether the company was in the wrong.
I have no idea how it will turn out. But it does give me some satisfaction that they are being scrutinized a bit. I’m hopeful that the benefits will kick in, the money would be very helpful as I look for work.
Some Other News
I have not heard back from Home Depot. It makes me very sad that I may not get the part time job. I’m really interested in working there. I called and left a message for the hiring manager today.
History Buff has decided to move down to GA. We are working out the details now. I’m afraid he’s learned that adulting is not all it’s cut out to be. He is ready to get back to his education.
