TaxBandits provides you with an option to download and print W-2 form copies for your reference once you have transmitted the returns to the SSA. The copies will be available for you under the Distribution Center.

Follow the steps below to download your W-2 form copies:

  • Sign in to your TaxBandits account.
  • From the Dashboard, click Distribution Center.
  • Click 1099/W-2/1098/5498 Forms under Print Forms.

  • Select the Tax year, Business Name, and Form type as Form W-2. Click the View Forms button, and all the recipients under the business will be displayed.

You will see the section which is grouped as

  • Recipient Copies (Employee Copies for 1099/W-2/1098/5498 forms)
  • Payer Copies (Employer Copies for 1099/W-2/1098/5498 forms)
  • State Copies 
  • State Reconciliation Copies

Navigate to the respective tab to download the copies. You can either choose to download separate copies or download multiple forms based on your requirement.

  • Select the required copies from the list and Click the Download Forms button, or if you want to download an individual copy, Click the Download icon under the Action column.

You have the option to download your form copies by Masking or Unmasking the TIN. 

  • Masked TIN (Recommended): Masks your TIN (replacing five digits of TIN with X’s or asterisks) on any of your tax returns filed with the IRS or with the state or local government.
  • Unmasked TIN: The TIN will not be masked on any of your tax returns filed with the IRS or with the state or local government.

The W-2 copies are available for download as a ZIP file or a consolidated PDF. You can also download forms with or without the TIN masking.
