S atom has six valence electrons out of which 2 remain as lone pair of electrons and 4 are shared with 2 oxygen atoms to form covalent bonds. Hence, no electron is gained and no electron is lost. So, neither negative nor positive charge is present on the S atom. Hence, the formal charge on S atom in SO2 is zero.
