Use for condensed 3up W2 forms for employees, Copies B/C/2 for federal and state 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!
