Making a correction to a previously filed Form W-2 or W-2c is simple. TaxBandits allows you to easily correct common errors such as an incorrect name, social security number, or amount, on any Form W-2 or W-2c. Corrected W-2c Forms must be provided to your employees and a copy should also be e-filed or mailed to the Social Security Administration (SSA).
You can e-file your W-2c corrections even if you only have one correction form to file. However, if you file 250 or more W-2c Forms during a calendar year, you must file electronically, unless the IRS grants you a waiver. If you fail to file your Form W-2c electronically when required, penalties may be applied.
Choose Tax bandits, an IRS-authorized e-file provider so that you can e-file multiple W-2c Forms in a single instance and also accepts corrections from the filers who filed their original return with other providers. View more features.Start Filing Now

There is no specific deadline for filing Form W-2c, however, the IRS suggest that you file as soon as you discover the error(s) on your original W-2 or W-2c form. Keep in mind that employees usually expect corrections to be made prior to filing their income tax returns with the IRS.
You are required to file Form W-3c (transmittal form for Form W-2c) when you transmit W-2c forms to the Social Security Administration. This form is automatically generated for you when you e-file Form W-2c with TaxBandits.
The W-2 Correction Form (W-2c) can be filed electronically through TaxBandits in five simple steps:
If you change the original Form W-2 in the state or local field, do not send Copy A of Form W-2c to the SSA. Instead, send Form W-2c to the appropriate state or local agency and furnish copies to your employees. For correcting state/local information, contact your state or locality for specific reporting information. Please be sure that Form W-2 corrections are not forwarded to the state/local as there is no specific data sharing program between the federal and state/local.
