Review Forms W-2 for completeness

Before you print W-2 forms, you can review the W-2 worksheet for each employee who worked for you at any time during the year. If you notice anything missing, or if you want to adjust for something you don't track on paychecks, you can edit some of the fields for that Form W-2.

Important: If you are uncertain about how to report a specific benefit or amount on the W-2 form, consult your accountant or federal tax guidelines.
