What is Form W-2c?

Form W-2c, officially Corrected Wage and Tax Statement, is an Internal Revenue Service form of previously filed Form W-2 or W-2c. Any errors made on Form W-2 or W-2c filed previously with the Social Security Administration (SSA) can be corrected by filing this form.
Use this form if you wish to correct any of the following:

  • Incorrect name
  • Incorrect SSN
  • Incorrect amount entered

i. Wages, Tips, and, Other Compensation
ii. Social Security Wages, tips, and tax withheld
iii. Federal Income Tax Withheld
iv. Allocated Tips, Dependent Care Benefits
v. Incorrect state/local information (only if applicable)

There is no specific deadline for filing Form W-2c. However, it is suggested that you file Form W-2c as soon as you discover any error on your original Form W-2 or W-2c form, as filing Form W-2 with incorrect information can lead to penalties.
If you state a reasonable cause for incorrectly filling out and filing Form W-2, SSA provides you the exemption from paying penalties.
