Print Corrected W-2s
After you file W-2 corrections in TaxBandits, the corrected forms will be available in the Distribution Center. You can download and print the W-2c copies. Make sure you distribute the corrected copies to the corresponding employees.
- To correct the employer's TIN, Address, Employment Code, and Tax Year, you may need to contact the SSA. The Employer Services Liaison Officers (ESLOs) of the SSA can assist with all processes and applications. Visit https://www.ssa.gov/employer/wage_reporting_specialists.htm to know more details.
- Currently TaxBandits does not support W-2 corrections for state information. You should file the state correction directly to the state agency.
