If they say they mailed it, they probably did in the ordinary course of business. They are entitled to be reimbursed for the cost of providing a new one. I think, $20 is excessive, but that's not my call. Your nephew can download IRS Form 4506-T and order a transcript of all his wage and information documents from IRS and they will mail it to him for $zero.
