What is Form W3c?
The Form 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-2c Forms need to file W-3c for transmitting the Copy A of the Form W-2c. Now even if there is only a single paper W-2c form that is filed, the W-3c is still needed. In addition, you don't need to file the W-3c Form for the W-2c Forms which were submitted electronically to the SSA.
