FAQs on W-2 Forms

Is there an extension form available for filing Form W-2?

You may request an automatic extension of time to file Form W-2 with the SSA by sending Form 8809, Application for Extension of Time to File Information Returns, to the address shown on Form 8809. You must request the extension before the Form W-2 due date. You will have an additional 30 days to file. This extension form does not extend the January 31 due date to furnish the W-2 form(s) to your employees - there is a different process for this.
