Electronically Filing Form W-2c

You can make corrections to a previously filed Form W-2.

On the W-2c tab, you can electronically file Form W-2c, which reports corrections to Form W-2.

As an employer, you must complete Form W-2c for any employee whose Form W-2 has been corrected after it was filed.

Before electronically filing Form W-2, select the employees you want to file the form for, the year, and your Tax ID information. If you are electronically filing tax forms for multiple states, you must create and transmit a separate file for each state.


Before you can electronically file tax forms, you must create an account.

There is a third-party charge for electronic filing tax forms. Fees vary based on the number of records and forms filed, along with the services you choose. The total displays in the last step of electronic filing.
