W-2C CORRECTION FORMS
If you need to correct a W2 form because the original has errors, you will likely need to file a W2C form (W-2 Correction Form).
This is different than a standard W2 form, and requires a few additional steps. You’ll need to fill in all of the fields, once for the information originally filed, and once for the correct information (if applicable).
You can also file W2C forms online and let us do the work for you!
