Default 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.

They may have to. I once didn't cash a bonus check and every year the company would reissue it. It was for 97 cents and I framed it and hung it where everyone could see it to embarrass them.

I'd ask a bank before trying to get it re-issued, It might still be cashable. They can check w/o you incurring a bounced check fee if it won't go.

i know here in canada the once the company issues the checks and reports it on your t4 ( which records income earned and paid by the company during the year) what happens to the checks is your problem. they have no requirement to adjust anything.

as was said try your bank first. if they won't budge then you either see if the company will reissue or revalidate the cheques or just eat the loss.

good luck!
