    A W-2 is what an employer sends to their employees every year they work for them.

    No.  The form asks you to enter an address, but this is so that things can be mailed to you.  It does not have to be a legal residence.

    Your employer is required to send a 1099 so they would need an address. Never heard of anyone being able to not give an address.  Use a relatives or friends if you are living under the interstate but can still afford a cell phone.

    No law requires it, no.
