Form W2, also known as the Wage and Tax Statement, reports the annual wages of your employees and the amount of tax that you have withheld from their paychecks. Employers must send each of their employees a copy and file these forms with the SSA.
The Form W-2 for 2019 has a few new updates. Box 9, the verification code box, is no longer present. This box was part of a pilot program that the IRS has ended for tax year 2019. Employee stock options are no longer subject to the RRTA (Railroad Retirement Tax Act). There is now an opportunity for disaster tax relief. Another change to note is that penalties are increasing for those who file Form W-2 for 2019 late or disregard filing completely. Visit irs.gov to learn more about Form W2.
If you have paid at least one employee at least $600 (all amounts if any income, social security, or Medicare tax was withheld) in wages this year, you must file a Form W-2 for each employee from whom:
A Form W-3 is a transmittal form that summarizes the Form W-2, it outlines the total wages, tips, and compensation paid to employees and the taxes withheld from their wages. Only employers who have paper-filed their W-2 Forms must file the W-3 Form.
Form W3 is not required when you file W2 Forms electronically.
Most states require you to file your W-2’s at a state level as well as federally. Always be sure to check your requirements before filing your Form W2 with the State.

The Form W-2 has a variety of copies with slightly different purposes.
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 2019 and file these forms with the SSA by January 31, 2020 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.
