what happens when I only mail my federal income tax without the w-2 form?

My dad did my Income tax for me, since I don’t know how do it, so went to the website that he did my income tax and I just printed and mail my Federal Income Tax without the W-2 form because I couldn’t find it. So my question is this, what will happened when I only mail my federal income tax without the W-2 form? Will I go to jail to just pay penalties?

OK so you did it all ready at this time in your life so now once the IRS does open up fully for business after this shut down for the lack of funding when they do get your mailed return and do get around to processing it with out the copies of your W-2 forms to verify the amount of tax that were withheld they will have to wait until they can get the correct information and numbers from the SSA to verify the information that was enter on your 1040 federal Income Tax return for the 2012 tax year OK.
So this will probably slow down the time that it take for them to be able to complete processing of your 1040 FIT Tax Return at that time OK.

  1. Wait you are missing is proof that you had withholding.

    The IRS (when it opens again) might look up your W-2 to verify the amount and might copy the withholding over when they process the return.

    If they don’t, when you get a bill, you’ll need to call in.

  3. You have filed an incomplete return. The IRS will notify you by mail that you omitted a required attachment and that your return cannot be processed without it. You’ll have to mail or fax a copy of your W-2 to the IRS before processing can begin.

    If you are due a refund the only problem will be that processing is delayed. Processing is already delayed because of the government shutdown. If you owe but paid in full when you mailed your return, the late payment penalties will stop as of the postmark date on your return.

    Nobody every went to jail for forgetting an attachment.
