7 Common W-2 Filing Errors that Employers should be aware of!

Now it is time to file your Form W-2 with the SSA to report wages paid to employees and taxes withheld. The same information must be furnished to your employees.

Before getting started with your filing make sure that you avoid these common mistakes:

  1. Reporting W-2s on wrong Form
  2. Sending the W-2s to the IRS instead of the Social Security Administration
  3. Not Using IRS Approved Forms (paper filers)
  4. Failing to use black ink
  5. Making entries too large or too small
  6. Failing to include the decimal and cents on amount
  7. Filing by paper, when required to file electronically
