As an employer, you are supposed to provide Form W-2 copy to the employee any time after the employment ends, but no later than January 31 of the year that precedes the tax year associated.
If an employee initiates a request on his/her own for Form W-2 copy, you must provide them with the completed copies within 30 days of the request or within 30 days of the final wage payment, whichever is later.
