Form W-2 Employee's Annual Wages Corrections

IRS Form W-2C is used to correct previously filed Form W-2.

Form W-2C Online

Enter Form W-2C data online.

You can enter the company, the employee and the Form W-2C information completely online. To make changes to a previously filed Form W-2 or W-2C, both the “previously reported” and the “correct” information are required.

For example, if you want to correct the total wage amount in box 1, you need to enter both the previously box 1 amount and the correct box 1 amount. Only enter the amounts you want to change. You do not need to enter anything to boxes you are not changing.

If you need to change the employer information (EIN, etc.), you need to prepare a Form W-2C to void the previously issued Form W-2. The W-2C will have the same information (wrong EIN, etc.) as shown on the W-2, except all of the “correct” amounts are “0”. You will then prepare another W-2C with the correct employer information and the correct amount (previously reported amounts are all “0”s). If you are not late, you can just issue a new and correct W-2.
