If you have reported incorrect federal and/or state amounts in the original W-2s, you can file W-2c forms to correct them. At TaxBandits, you can file W-2c even if you have filed the original returns with a different service provider, but you will need to have the originally reported details.

Here's how you correct the amounts reported in W2

  • Sign in to TaxBandits, and select Start New Form >> Form W-2c.
  • Select the Tax Year.
  • Choose an appropriate option based on how you filed your original W-2s.
