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.

NUMBER OF W2 PARTS 

The number of parts you need is determined by which government agencies you are reporting to.

  • Federal Only – 4 parts
  • Federal and State – 6 parts
  • Federal, State and City – 8 parts

When using condensed 2up, 3up or 4up forms, you can print all employee copies on a single sheet to save time.

  • For a 4-part form, use 2up paper.
  • For a 6-part form, use 3up paper.
  • For an 8-part form, use 4up paper.

W-2C CORRECTION FORMS

If you need to correct a W2 form that has already been filed with the SSA because the original has errors, you will 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).

NEW for 2023… you must file the W2C form with the SSA in the same manner as the original W2.

  • If you e-filed, you must e-file the correction.
  • If you printed and mailed the original Copy A, you must also print and mail the W2C. 

You can also file W2C forms online and let us do the work for you!
