When an employer files a W-2 Form, six copies of the form are generated. Below are the copies of Form W-2 and its purposes:
- Copy A - Submitted to the Social Security Administration (SSA)
- Copy 1 - For state, city, or local tax department
- Copy B - To be filed with employees’ Federal Tax Return
- Copy C - For employee records
- Copy 2 - To be filed with employee’s state, city, or local income tax return
- Copy D - For employer records
If you e-file Form W-2 through ExpressEfile, all six copies will be generated. You will also have an option to postal mail the return copies to your employees.
