Decoding W-2 Formats

2 forms per sheet, all blank paper can include employee instructions on the back.
Use them for Official W2 forms (2 of the same copies) or condensed 2up employee Copies B/C for federal filing.
3up W2 Forms
3 forms on a sheet, typically with a vertical size strip to remove before mailing.
Use for condensed 3up W2 forms for employees, Copies B/C/2 for federal and state filing.
4up W2 Forms
4 forms on a single sheet, perforated into quadrants or horizontal sections depending on your software.
Use for 8pt W2 printing of employee Copies B/C/2/2 for federal, state and local filing.
Tips for Easier W2 Filing
Check your software for supported formats:
- Preprinted forms (prints data on a pre-made form) or
- Blank paper (prints data and boxes on a perforated sheet)
- 2up, 3up or 4up forms
- Be sure your envelope windows match!
W3 Transmittal forms must be mailed with Red Copy A forms. We include a couple FREE W3 forms with each W2 order.
