Also, be reminded that employees expect corrections to be made and sent before they could file their information returns with the IRS.
If there is an error in the employee name or SSN in the W-2 form reported, fill in boxes “a” to ‘i” in Form W-2c and send the form to the SSA. Also, file Form W-2c and W-3c and send it to the SSA.
