Do I need to wait for all my tax returns to come in before I file or what?

You MUST wait for ALL of your W-2's to arrive before filing for a tax return. Employers, legally, have until January 31st to have these all in the mail.

You need to have all your W2s, 1099s, and any other tax papers before you file.

Your tax return is a document you file with the IRS. Yes, you have to wait for all W2's (the form you get from your employer(s))

You need to wait so that you have all of the information available to properly report all of your data.

Yes you need to know the total amounts of earnings for the year and the total amounts of tax withheld so that you can file and accurate return and possibly receive a refund if your tax was over paid.

All your tax returns??? A tax return is the document you file. OF COURSE you need to have all the information before you file. Wouldn't that be common sense????

Your tax RETURN is the form you file. If you're asking about your W-2s, yes you need them all before you file. You need some info from each of them. The IRS is not accepting returns anyway until next week.

You are using the terminology incorrectly, but yes. You need to wait until you have everything and then file it all at one time. You cannot file some of it when you haven't yet gotten the rest.
