Thank you for your question.
The IRS has provisions for this problem:
"...How do I get my W-2 form from a company that went under last year?
If you need to file a return for the most recent tax year and you have
not yet received a Form W-2, try either calling at the last known
telephone number or send a self-addressed stamped envelope to the last
known address. Even though the company has gone out of business, they
might still be having their mail forwarded. Because the company "went
under," it may be in bankruptcy. If the employer has not furnished
Forms W-2 to the employees and all the company assets, including
payroll records, are currently part of a bankruptcy estate, the
bankruptcy trustee should issue the Forms W-2 in connection with wage
claims paid by the trustee. Contact the bankruptcy court for the name
of the trustee assigned to the bankruptcy case.
If you are unable to obtain a copy of your W-2, contact the IRS after
February 15th of the following year and a representative will take a
W-2 complaint. Form 4598, "Form W-2 or 1099 Not Received or
Incorrect," will be completed. A copy will be mailed to the last known
address of the employer and one to you, along with a Form 4852 (PDF),
Substitute for a Missing Form W-2.
If it has been nine months or more since the end of the tax year, the
IRS may be able to provide you with a transcript of the W-2 filed by
the employer with the Social Security Administration. Call (800)
829-1040 or (800) 829-3767 to ask for Form 4506. If you filed a return
with the original W-2 attached, but now need a copy, you may order one
from the IRS with a Form 4506 (PDF), Request for Copy or Transcript of
There are a few links that might be of additional help for you on the

IF you are unable to reach the employer, you may have to enlist the
help of the IRS as noted above.
