Employee copies may be printed in a 2up, 3up or 4up format (2, 3 or 4 forms per page; also called ‘condensed forms). All of the copies for a single employee will print on one page. 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.

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!
