General W-2 and 1099 Questions

When will my W-2 or 1099 be available?

Digital versions of W-2s and 1099s are typically available for download in myEP the second to last week of January. Printed versions are typically mailed out the last week of January.

Will I be alerted when my W-2 or 1099 is ready?

If you signed up to go paperless, you will receive an email notification when your digital tax statement is ready.

Both W-2 and 1099 recipients can review the email account the notification will be sent to by going to myEP > My Account > Settings > Pay Preferences > W2 Delivery Preferences.

For those still receiving paper forms, expect them to arrive after they are mailed in the last week of January.

I've already signed up for digital W-2 or 1099. Where can I find my form?
  1. Log in to my.ep.com.
  2. Go to the menu in the myEP Home header and select My Pay and then Annual Tax Statements.

How do I print or download my W-2 or 1099?
  1. Once you're signed in to myEP, go to My Pay > Annual Tax Statements. Your available tax documents will be listed showing the Document Name, Tax Year, and Type.
  2. Select from the Actions column:⁠
    • Download to download a copy
    • View to preview
    • Print Document to print

Are the digital copies the same as the paper copies?

The online, digital format of the W-2 or 1099 match the government-issued paper forms.

I have out-of-state work, and it looks like EP is overreporting my wages on the W-2. How do I fix this?

If you lived and worked in different states during the tax year, you will be issued a multi-state Form W-2.

This means you will receive a W-2 for your resident state and additional work state pages for each work state that differs from your resident state.

Additional work state pages are not considered to be a Form W-2 and should not be filed federally. Copy B for the federal return is intentionally left blank for this reason.

Based on EP's previous conversations with tax preparers, you musto take a credit in your resident state for the specific dollar amount earned and/or taxes withheld in the different work state. Consult with a tax professional for further clarification.

Note: If you worked in New York, but do not claim residency in the State of New York, please click here for more information on the New York Tax Law Section 672.

I requested a W2 or 1099 correction. How do I get a copy of the corrected form? Will it be available online?

Corrected tax forms are manually generated and are not be available online. Newly corrected forms require approval from EP's Tax Support department. Once approved, the corrected form will be automatically mailed to your address on file.

You may request a duplicate copy of your corrected form by submitting a completed Crew & Talent Inquiries & Corrections Form to paymentsupport@ep.com.

My W-2 or 1099 is incorrect. How do I fix it?

EP requires all corrections to be submitted in writing with a wet signature. Complete the Crew & Talent Inquiries & Corrections Form and send it to paymentsupport@ep.com.

Examples of incorrect information:

  • ⁠Incorrect work state
  • Wage calculation discrepancy

My final check stub Year-to-Date total does not match my W-2 total. How do I correct this?

Sign in to my.ep.com to review your payment history. Go to My Pay > Pay History. If you discover a discrepancy, submit a completed Crew & Talent Inquiries and Corrections form. Be sure to include a brief description of the correction needed.

I worked in New York but my W-2 is showing more than what I earned in that state. How can I get it corrected?

Section 672 of the New York tax law requires that if at any time during the year, a non-resident employee performs services in New York State, the wages reported in Box 16 (state wages) must match the amount shown in Box 1 (wages, tips, other compensation), regardless of how much was earned in that state. If you are filing as a non-resident, remember to complete the IT203 and IT203-B forms to determine how much tax you owe.

EP will display the actual total amounts earned and total days worked in NY under the Earnings Summary Section of the Form W-2.

The Retirement Plan box is marked incorrectly. How do I fix this?

In most cases, this is not an error. This box will be marked if you were paid through a union production that made contributions to a union’s pension plan on your behalf. This may happen even if you are not a union member.

If you are unable to take credit on your tax return for your personal IRA because this box is marked, EP can provide a pension letter to clarify why the retirement plan box was marked. The letter will include the union’s name, address, and phone number of where the contributions were sent. You will need to obtain a second letter from that union to indicate your pension eligibility status for submission to the IRS.

To request a pension letter, submit a completed Crew & Talent Inquiries and Corrections form.

How do I get a W-2 or 1099 that is older than three years?
My W-2 lists a payment I never received. How do I get my payment?

Review your payment history on my.ep.com. Go to My Pay > Pay History. Once you identify the missing payment and it has been more than 15 to 30 business days from the current day, you can do one of the following:

Crew & Talent
If it has been more than 10 days since you last worked, contact your production company first to confirm a check has been released. The production company will contact EP to start the void and reissue process if needed. If the production company has wrapped, complete and submit a Crew & Talent Stop Pay/Reissue form.

Residuals/Music
Contact your union to confirm that a payment has been logged and released in the mail, and that the union has the most recent address on file. If the union confirms that the check was mailed but it wasn't received within ten business days of the mailing, complete and submit a Crew & Talent Stop Pay/Reissue form.

I received a W-2 for my family member who has passed away. What do I need to provide to update their residuals set up?

You must notify EP and the union of your family member’s death by providing copies of the following documentation:

  1. Death certificate
  2. Last Will and Testament; if an Estate, letters of testamentary or letters of administration
  3. Name, address, and Social Security number of beneficiary(s); if an Estate, name and address of Executor of the Estate and Federal Tax ID# for the Estate

Complete our Talent – Residual Set Up Change Request Form and submit along with the above documentation.

Can talent representatives get W-2s or 1099s on behalf of their clients?

⁠Talent representatives may request to receive tax information for their clients via email. However, all talent representatives must be listed on file as "c/o" before any tax information is released to them. To make a request for tax information, a completed Crew & Talent Inquiries & Corrections Form must be submitted with a copy of the Authorization to Release Information letter or power of attorney document signed by the client.

For security and privacy reasons, talent representatives are NOT authorized to sign into myEP on behalf of their clients.

Other Tax Form Questions

Can I get EP's federal employer identification number (FEIN) directly?

No, per EP's legal counsel, EP cannot provide this information directly. The information is provided on your year-end tax form.

Why am I receiving a 1099-NEC for my corporation?

As of tax year 2020, employers are required to issue a Form 1099-NEC to report nonemployee compensation. If you feel there is a discrepancy, submit a completed Crew & Talent Inquiries and Corrections form. Be sure to include a brief description of the correction.

Why am I receiving a 1099-MISC for my box/kit rental? I thought it was non-taxable.

RENTNT (non-taxable box/kit rental) on your check stubs is non-taxable at the time of payment but it is reportable for tax purposes on Box 1 (Rents) on the 1099-MISC. These types of payments are filed on schedule C (Form 1040) of the Corporation or Individual tax return.

I received Georgia Form G-2FP issued to my loan-out corporation. What is this form for?

A. Form G2-FP is issued to the loan-out corporation for informational purposes only. It shows the amount of earnings in the state of Georgia and the amount of tax withheld for the Georgia film tax incentive. Form G2-FP is not used to file a tax return.

I worked in Georgia and was paid through my loan-out corporation. How do I get a copy of my Georgia Form G-2FP?
