Correcting an incorrect tax year and/or EIN incorrectly
reported on Form W-2 or Form W-3
To correct an incorrect tax year and/or EIN on a previously submitted Form W-2 or Form W-3, you must prepare two sets of Forms W-2c and W-3c.
Step 1: Prepare one Form W-3c along with a Form W-2c for each affected employee. On the Form W-3c, enter the
incorrect tax year in box a, and the incorrect EIN originally reported in box h. Enter in the “Previously reported” boxes
the money amounts that were on the original Form W-2. In the “Correct information” boxes, enter zeros.
Step 2: Prepare a second Form W-3c along with a second Form W-2c for each affected employee. On the Form
W-3c, enter the correct tax year in box a and/or the correct EIN in box e. Enter zeros in the “Previously
reported” boxes, and enter the correct money amounts in the “Correct information” boxes.
