94X 1099 W-2 ACA W-4

Whether the original W-2s were filed with TaxBandits or other service providers, you can make corrections to them using TaxBandits. If you have filed W-2s with other service providers, have the originally reported details handy.
 
You can correct the following with us:

  • Employer EIN & Incorrect Tax Year
  • Employee Name & SSN 
  • Federal and State Amount 
  • W-2s filed that should not have been filed (Void)

Correct Employer EIN & Incorrect Tax Year

To correct the employer's name and EIN, you must file two W-2c forms. First to void the originally filed W-2. Once the SSA accepts it, you must file a second W2 Correction to correct the values. Proceed to nullify the originally filed W-2. Once the W-2c is accepted by the SSA, file a second correction form W-2c with the correct values. 

Note: If the original W-2s were filed with other service providers, please contact SSA to correct the employer details.

Correct Employee Name & SSN

For correcting the W-2s filed with TaxBandits, you just need to enter the correct details as we will auto-populate the previously reported details. For correcting the returns you filed with other service providers, you must have the previously reported information along with the correct information.

Correct Federal and State Amounts

Suppose you have made errors in federal and state amounts in the previously filed W-2s, file W-2c. For correcting the W-2s filed with TaxBandits, you just need to enter the correct details as we will auto-populate the previously reported details. For correcting the returns you filed with other service providers, you only need the correct amounts.

Void a W-2

You can void the previously filed returns through TaxBandits. When you void the return, we will mark all the amount fields as zero, and the IRS will disregard the previous return.
