Lee sent an e-mail to Post-Dispatch employees saying the W-2s were sent to the post office on Jan. 28, then they ... disappeared. How do you lose 1,000+ tax forms? Sounds fishy. Lee says it is reprinting and re-sending the forms.
Are employees at other papers missing W-2s?
The e-mail sent to Post-Dispatch employees:

We have been informed that the W-2’s for St. Louis employees are being re-printed and will be re-mailed.
Lee Enterprises printed and sent the first W-2’s to the post office on Jan. 28. After that they cannot be tracked down. Lee Enterprises is still contacting post offices to attempt to locate them
The W-2’s are posted on link.lee.net under "payroll". You will be able to use that to begin your tax preparation.
Thanks for the tips on this one. Send e-mails and memos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
