idiot alert... (question)
Ok, I received two checks May of 2006 that were void after 90 days.. Only problem is, I lost them in a mess of papers never to be seen again, UNTIL today. I forgot about them until I found them again. The problem, is that my W4 from the company the payroll checks were from claimed I had gotten that money as income (because it should have been) but me being stupid, never cashed those checks. So does the company HAVE to re-send those checks to make my tax information correct, or what do I do? These checks total $1,200 BTW so that extra cash would be great to have.. I can't believe I"m so freaking stupid that I lost two checks for $600 each and forgot about them until A YEAR LATER. I highly doubt that the company will re-issue the checks, either.
