2017 W-2 Forms Are Now Being Accepted by the SSA

Tis the season to be jolly!

It’s probably safe to say that filing taxes for your business is one of the last things that put you in the Christmas spirit.

Luckily, there’s a new innovative, tax filing solution created and designed specifically for small businesses, nonprofits, and tax professionals that makes e-filing a breeze!

TaxBandits offers the most streamlined, interview-style e-filing process that helps you keep your business moving in the right direction.

If you’ve ever worked for a company or had employees who received income with social security, income, or Medicare tax withheld from their earnings, you know that an IRS Form W-2 must be filed annually.

Form W-2 is a payroll or employment tax return that is filed electronically with the Social Social Security Administration (SSA) by employers for their employees. These W-2 Forms are currently being accepted by the SSA.

In addition to filing with the SSA, employers must also send copies of Form W-2 to their employees to report salary and other compensations offered throughout the year. These forms must be filed and distributed by January 31st.

Once you’ve filed your Form W-2, there’s one more form that has to be submitted. A W-3 must be submitted with your W-2 forms. Form W-3 is a transmittal form that reports the total earnings, social security wages, Medicare wages, and tax withholdings for your employees during the tax period. At TaxBandits, we automatically generate Form W-3 for you when you file your W-2 Form.
