What is the difference between forms W-2 and 1042-S?

0

The IRS form W-2 is used to report annual taxable federal and state wages. Treaties for non-resident aliens (NRA) may exempt the employee from federal taxes but not from Maryland state taxes so a W-2 is used for annual state income tax filing.If you are a NRA and are exempt from federal taxes, then you will receive a form 1042-S. Both forms are used to complete the annual 1040NR. For additional information- click here for IRS Publication 519- U.S. Tax Guide for Aliens (2001).
