How to Choose the Right W-2 Forms

OPTIONS FOR FILING W-2 FORMS

  • Your Accounting Software: Print W-2 forms compatible with your software, such as QuickBooks®.
  • Specialized W-2 Software: Print and e-file W-2 forms if your accounting software does not.
  • Online W-2 Filing: Enter or import data and we print, mail and e-file for you!

TYPES OF W-2 FORMS

All government copies must be printed in a 2up format (2 forms per page)

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.

E-FILING REQUIREMENTS

If a payer has 250+ forms to file, they MUST E-FILE Copy A. The IRS is currently considering lowering that threshold to 100.

W-2C CORRECTION FORMS

Ordering 1099 & W2 Forms

Official preprinted 1099 & W2 forms are sold by the form (not sheets). 

Order a quantity equal to the number of recipients you have. For example, if you have 25 recipients, order 25 forms.

  • If your W2 or 1099 forms are 2up (2 per page) you will receive 13 sheets
  • If your 1099 forms are 3up (3 per page) you will receive 7 sheets

Condensed preprinted W2 forms are sold by the recipient (not the number of forms on it). 

Order a quantity equal to the number of employees you have. For example, if you have 50 employees, order a quantity of 50.

Blank 1099 & W2 forms are sold by the sheet (not the number of forms on it).

Order a quantity equal to the number of recipients you have. For example, if you have 100 recipients, order 100 sheets.

 

Packaging Information

When you receive your order, please open it right away to review the contents and ensure you have exactly what you need. The information below will help you to understand how it’s packaged.

Each shrink-wrapped package may contain several different forms. If there are multiple forms in a package, they will be separated by a colored sheet of paper.

Be sure to open the entire package to determine if items are missing.

 

Packaging of Kits and Sets

1099 & W2 kits or sets can be packaged in one of two ways.

Example 1: Pre-packaged in specific quantities, which may mean there are multiple shrink-wrapped packs to fulfill your entire order.

Example 2: One shrink-wrapped package, which includes all the forms together.

Free Transmittals

Your order was likely shipped with free 1096 or W3 transmittal forms. They will likely be at the bottom of your packs of forms.
