Can I File Taxes Using My Pay stub LES

Authorized IRS e-file Providers must not submit electronic returns to the IRS prior to the receipt of all Forms W-2, W-2G, and 1099-R from the taxpayers.

If taxpayers are unable to secure and provide a correct Form W-2, W-2G, or 1099-R, Providers may submit the electronic return only after securing Form 4852, Substitute for Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, or Form 1099-R, Insurance Contracts, Distributions From Pensions, Annuities, Retirement or Profit-Sharing Plans, IRAs etc. in accordance with the use of that form.

This is the only time Providers should submit an electronic return with information from pay stubs or Leave and Earning Statements (LES).

The IRS monitors Authorized IRS e-file Providers for compliance with this and other IRS e-file rules and requirements. The IRS conducts monitoring visits to ensure compliance with Revenue Procedure 2007-40 and with IRS e- file rules and requirements included in IRS e-file publications.

The IRS may warn or sanction Providers that violate IRS e-file rules and requirements. Sanctions may be a written reprimand, suspension of one or two years or expulsion from participation from IRS e-file depending on the seriousness of the infraction.

The IRS categorizes the seriousness of infractions as Level One, Level Two, and Level Three. Providers may appeal sanctions through the Administrative Review Process.

Additional information regarding sanctioning is available at irs.gov in Publication 3112, IRS e-file Application and Participation.
