Yes, employers are required to send a recipient copy of Form W-2 to assist employees in filing their income tax returns. The recipient copies must be sent to the employees on or before January 31st. If the deadline falls on a weekend or federal holiday, the copies can be sent on the next business day.
If you have opted for the postal mailing option, ExpressEfile will send the recipient copies to the employees on time. In case you have not opted for postal mailing, you can simply email the copies to the employees or download and furnish it manually from the Dashboard.
