Q. Does West Virginia mandate W-2 filing?

Q. Does West Virginia require any additional forms to be submitted while filing W-2?

A. Yes, the State of West Virginia requires additional forms to be submitted based on the type of filing.

When you e-file, you only need to submit the Year-End Reconciliation Form WV/IT-103. When you file with TaxBandits, we take care of submitting this form to the state. However, if you choose to paper-file, you need to submit both Form W-3 and Form WV/IT-103 to the State.

Q. What is the deadline to file W-2 with West Virginia?

A. The deadline to file W-2 and submit the year-end reconciliation Form WV/IT-103 with the State of West Virginia is January 31. The deadline is the same for e-filing, paper-filing, and furnishing recipient copies.

Note: If the due date falls on a weekend or federal holiday, the next weekday is the deadline.

Q. Can I electronically file W-2 with West Virginia?

A. Yes, the State of West Virginia supports the electronic filing of W-2s. It is mandatory to E-file W-2 to the state under the following conditions.

  • When you file 25 or more W-2s.

Q. What are the W-2 penalties for West Virginia?

A. Penalties are based on when you file, delay in tax deposits, and incorrect type of filing.

  • Late filing of W-2
    • When you file after the due date of January 31, the penalty is 5% of your unpaid tax per month. It may go up to 25% until you file it, but it will never exceed this percentage.
  • Late payment of taxes
    • If you do not pay taxes on time, you may expect a penalty of 0.5% of the tax due every month. It may go up to 25% until you pay it, but it will never exceed this percentage.

    Note: If you fail to file W-2 and do not pay the taxes on time, you will be subject to both
    penalties above.

  • Not E-filing when required
    • It is mandatory to e-file when you file 25 or more W-2s. If you fail to e-file W-2s in such a case, the State will impose a penalty of $25/form.

Q. Can I file the correction Form W-2c with the State of West Virginia?

A. Yes! For errors in your W-2 filing, you must file a correction with the State of West Virginia using Form W-2c. Since the state accepts only the paper filing of W-2c, you must also submit the amended Form WV/IT-103 (Reconciliation form) and W-3c (Summary form) to the state.
