Form W-2c is used to correct errors on previously filed W-2 forms. Errors like an incorrect name, SSN, or amount, made on any Form W-2 or W-2c filed previously with the SSA can be corrected by filing a Form W-2c. Form W-2c is also used to provide employees with a corrected copy.
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, penalties may be applied.
There is no specific deadline for filing Form W-2c, however, the IRS suggests that you file as soon as you discover the error(s) on your original Form 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.Start E-Filing Now

The W-2 Correction Form (W-2c) can be filed electronically through TaxBandits in few simple steps:
You are required to file Form W-3c (transmittal form for Form W-2c) when you transmit W-2c forms to the SSA. This form is automatically generated for you when you e-file Form W-2c with TaxBandits, and we will also take care of mailing the corrected W-2c Forms to your employees.
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. Please be sure that Form W2 corrections are not forwarded to the state/local as there is no specific data sharing program between the federal and state/local.
Contact your state or locality for more information regarding the correction of state/local information on your Form W-2. Find the mailing address of your state to send the Corrected W-2 forms to your state agencies.
