    My experience with the IRS-
    When 2 different past employers sent out my W2 it didn't match the pay stubs.
    Yes they under reported what they took from my check and kept the difference.
    The IRS only asks you to file an extra form with the correction and proof.
    In another words calling and complaining to the IRS does little.

    But by complaining your admitting you cheated on your taxes.
    You would need to back pay taxes that were not claimed.
    Most likely a fine and interest also.

    Years later you'll notice you got cheated on your social security also.
    When it comes time to calculate your benefits, those years won't show much.

    Just be glad you were not injured on the job.
    They could have just dragged you to the street and say you didn't work for them.

Perhaps working a few more years until you qualify for your licence in the proper penance.
    Bottom line is that even your past employer who you worked off the books is not going to sign anything that could get him in trouble. If you worked off the books then there is the obvious under reported taxes, there is also the under reported Workers comp. In either case the employer would open himself to big fines and additional taxes. I cannot imagine that an employee did not know what the ramifications of working off the books meant.

    Unfortunately you may need to suck it up!
    We all do things because of work.

    as kind of an aside.

    some in law type relatives I know are in their 30s and 40s with no more than a few years of social security credit despite working full time and then some under the table. I doubt they have any money saved up for when they are too old and decrepit to work any more and the way they are going they are not going to have much in the way of social security benefits either.

    this kind of thing seems pretty common these days. it seems like there are as many people working off the books as on.

    This post shows that you are willing to take responsibility for your actions. Good for you. Your right, you should have known better and now you do. Pass this life lesson on to others when the occasion arises.

    Unless you are not explaining this correctly I don't see how the employee would be in trouble. You said your employer deducted the correct amount of witholding from your paychecks according to your pay stubs but sent the IRS less and reported that lesser amount on your W2. If this was a witholding mistake and you were paid too much then, yes, you would owe the difference come April 15 and all would be good. But the employer knowingly cheated you and the IRS, first by pocketing some of your witholding then filing fraudulent witholding returns. It is he who faces federal charges, jail time, fines and restitution. So your SS account would be credited.

    There are lots of employers sitting in federal prison for doing exactly this.
