Correcting Mistakes with a W-2C
W-2C sounds like a type of motor oil. But it’s actually a form used by the IRS to correct any mistakes an individual may find on the W-2 forms they received from their employer, like a misspelled name or incorrect social security number. Employers can also use this form to provide a corrected W2 to an employee. As soon as you find a mistake on a W-2, it’s best to file a W-2C immediately.
