A major task of the Payroll department is providing W-2 Forms to employees and to the Social Security Administration. The Forms must be correct, complete, and filed on time or the employer may face stiff penalties. The due date for both filing form W- with the Social Security Administration and for Furnishing the Forms to employees are January 31. Penalties are indexed for inflation and increase each year. Penalties are reduced when errors are corrected quickly. It is important for payroll professionals to understand the rules that reduce or mitigate penalties and to act within the time limitations for maximum benefit. Understanding how to compute and process corrections by correctly completing Form W-2c is an essential skill. Corrections to W-2 Forms frequently require that Forms 941 also be corrected. Similarly, a correction to a prior year Form 941 may require that Prior year W-2 Forms also be corrected. It is important for payroll professionals to understand the relationship between Form 941 and the W-2 Forms and to know to correct errors on Form 941 and how to correctly prepare Form 941-X.
This webinar will discuss the common and not-so-common errors and adjustments that affect Forms W-2 and actions you can take now to reduce or prevent filing problems and errors, special reporting situations, and what to do when errors are discovered. It will also cover the changes under the new filing deadlines.
Penalties for late filing or filing incorrect W-2 Forms are on the rise. In addition, penalties for incorrect information of Form 941 can also be costly. This webinar will discuss methods for avoiding or correcting errors on Forms 941 and W-2 with a focus on how to make corrections where required so those penalties are eliminated or minimized. The webinar will also discuss how to properly prepare and file Forms 941-X and W-2c correctly and how and when to file the corrections.
