You simply fold and mail – no need to separate and collate forms! Your software may support these formats, be sure to check its functionality before ordering.


If a payer has 100+ forms to file in 2020, they MUST E-FILE Copy A. We make it easy with DiscountEfile.com! Learn More.

  • January 31 – Recipient copies postmarked, Copy A mailed or efiled with IRS

These are federal deadlines. Most states follow the same dates.


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!
