W2 Corrections (Form W-2c)

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page


*Professional Edition Feature*


For filing W-2 Corrections, the W-2c form is used.  This is a universal "year-less" form that changes periodically, but can be used for filing corrections in any year.


NOTE: When filing the W-2c, we do not need to check the 'Corrections' box in Company maintenance and we do not need to select 'print corrected forms' when printing the W-2c.


Once a W-2c record is created, the W-2c becomes an option to print, review, and e-file just like any other form.


There are 2 ways to create a W-2c. Create from a current W-2 or manual Data Entry.  Please read the Data Entry section for information about editing the form.


Create from Current W-2


1. If you currently have the original W-2 in Magtax, locate the form in W-2 maintenance.  Do not change any data from the original filing.

Click the Corrected Checkbox






2. Click YES to create the W-2c record, then click the check mark to save the W-2.



3. Go to the W-2c tab, choose and edit the W-2c form.
