The other was for a Toledo resident who had to prove prior city taxes were paid. Federal transcripts of W-2 info do not include state and local withholding information. Luckily I had scanned the Old W-2s and could provide them. Toledo does not require a tax return if residents do not owe taxes, but often will request old info.
The benefits of PDFs.

As you know, as long as it is a PDF copy of the "original" w-2, it should not be an issue. Since we "scan" clients originals papers and later they can't find (for whatever reason) their originals (which was given back to them) , our firm offers the service of providing copies the clients need for a fee.
