Don’t Be Late! New Filing Deadline for W2s

2016 W2 Forms must be filed with the Social Security Administration (SSA) by January 31, a month earlier than in past years. The deadline to mail W2s to employees remains January 31. The date was accelerated as an attempt to reduce fraud.

Follow these tips to avoid errors:

Meeting the new deadline can be stress-free if you take the time to prepare in advance. Throughout the next year, create a set process for collecting taxable benefit data. For example, require any employees who use a company car to maintain and submit an auto log and collect the log on a monthly or annual basis.

We are happy to help calculate the value of your employees’ taxable benefits for your W2s. For help or to learn more about W2 preparation and filing, contact us today.
