Tips to File Tax Form W-2C and W-3C

What are W-2C and W-3C forms

Form W-2C ("Corrected Wage and Tax Statement"): This form is used by employers to correct errors on previously filed Forms W-2. If there are mistakes on an original W-2, such as incorrect wages or tax withholdings, employers use Form W-2C to provide corrected information to both employees and the IRS.

Form W-3C ("Transmittal of Corrected Wage and Tax Statements"): Form W-3C is used as a summary transmittal form when submitting corrected W-2 forms to the SSA. It accompanies the corrected W-2C forms and provides summary information about the corrected wage and tax statements being submitted.

Helpful Tips

  • 1. When to file W-2C and W-3C?
    File Forms W-2c (Corrected Wage and Tax Statement) and W-3c (Transmittal of Corrected Wage and Tax Statement) as soon as possible after you discover an error. Also, provide a Form W-2c to the employee as soon as possible.

  • 2. To correct a Form W-2 you have already submitted, file a Form W-2c with a separate Form W-3c for each year needing correction.

  • 3. File a Form W-3c whenever you file a Form W-2c, even if you are only filing a Form W-2c to correct an employee's name or Social Security number (SSN).
