lost w-2 form

My wife received a w-2 form for work she did in 2013 and I lost it and have not been able to complete the filing for 2014. She no longer works there. Went to the employer to see if we could get a copy at least 6 times and none has been sent to us. Can we get one from the feds? or where?
Thanks

?=> her employer is supposed to send a W-2 to both her and the SSA/ IRS. Once she contacts the IRS, then, The IRS’d advise her to reach out if she hasn't received the form by February 14. You should also contact her employer and ask them to issue you a W-2, or replace the one you lost. You can contact the IRS about missing W2s at 800-829-1040 to provide her name, address, Social Security number and phone number, as well as her employer's contact information, the dates she worked there and her estimated wages and income tax witheld. If you run out of time, you can file your taxes using a Form 4852, estimating your income and witholding taxes yourself. If you get a W-2 after the tax deadline you can file an amended return.

The employer did originally send one...and then it was lost. The fed site will give out info from an un-filed w-2 but only fed tax witheld...state and local tax info that is on the w-2. I need to get a copy of the original w-2 form that was filed by the employer....any help on that?

you can fie return without a w2.
you may use the figures on your final pay stub to list all wages, tips, other compensation and taxes withheld on the form. Two fill-in questions require you to state where you got your figures and what attempts you made to obtain an actual Form W-2 from your employer.
From the last stub check, you could generate your w2. BUT, the w2 should show the EIN of the employer. If you did work previously with them, you may have your last year tax with last year w2. Check the EIN so you could generate your w2.
If you could not, simply file the tax return for both Fed, and State. Make copies of the last check and attached it to the return. Then send it for both IRS and your State by MAIL. In the event you do receive the missing Form W-2 and the figures differ, you can amend your tax return by filing a Form 1040X as mentioned previously.

I appreciate your time and help....unfortunately she only worked there a few months of the same year and did not keep any pay stubs. I don't think we can get a copy of the cashed check(s) from the bank. This is why I'm at a loss as to the next step. Called the IRS and surprisingly, even with all the correct ID info, they couldn't give me much help...Is there anything else I can do? I just what to get caught up my returns....My estimated taxes cover anything owed so I don't have to worry about penalties...
