Form W-3c

Transmittal of Corrected Wages & Tax Statements Using TaxBandits

Overview of W-3c

Easy Transmitting of Form W-3c directly to SSA

The W-3c is the transmittal copy of the corrected tax and income statements. In most situations, the W-3c will accompany the W-2c, especially when it is delivered to the SSA and even when the total information from the W-2c forms are being submitted.

Individuals who are paper filing W-2 Forms need to file W-3 for transmitting the Copy A of the Form W-2. Now even if there is only a single paper W-2 form that is filed, the W-3 is still needed. In addition, you don't need to file the W-3 Form for the W-2 Forms which were submitted electronically to the SSA. For electronically filing of the W-2 forms, you don't need a separate W-3 form.
