The Form W-2 has a variety of copies with slightly different purposes.

Copy A - This goes to the SSA (Social Security Administration).

Copy 1 - This should be filed with the city, state, or local municipality.

Copy B - This should be filed with the employee’s federal taxes.

Copy C - This is for the employee’s records.

Copy 2 - This should be filed with the employee’s state taxes.

Copy D - This is for the employer’s records.

Employers commonly make mistakes when entering their employee’s TIN or Taxpayer Identification Number. With TaxBandits these common errors are worries of the past. Our cloud-based software validates your employees’ TIN’s against the SSA database for accurate reporting.

The Form W-2c provides corrections to the original W-2 Form. The information that may need to be amended includes an employees’ name, SSN, Tax Year, EIN, or errors in reported wages or taxes withheld.

A Form W-3c is a transmittal form that summarizes the corrected information found in a Form W-2c. It is not required when you e-file your forms.

Extensions for the Form W-2 are not automatic. If you are filing for a W-2 extension then you must paper-file the Extension Form 8809 and provide a detailed reason for needing the extension. The SSA will only grant a 30-day extension under extraordinary circumstances such as a catastrophic event. The 30-day extension does not apply to your recipient copies.

Employers who don’t furnish their employees with copies of their Form W-2 for 2022 and file these forms with the SSA by January 31 will be penalized. Employers who file within 30 days after the January 31st deadline, will be penalized $30 dollars per form. After 30 days the penalty rises to $60 per form. Learn more about W2 penalties.
