I Have 2 W2 From Same Employer
Why do I have 2 different W2 forms from the same company? 3
The same employer sent me 2 W2 forms, which are basically the same except for the local tax field. One says LEXINGTONFAYETTE and local income tax is 300, and the other says FAYETTE COUNTY and local income tax is only $ 80. I paid my taxes, should I declare both?update
In fact, it happened to my employer, just like last year, so there is no improvement or change in the state of care.
A corrected W2.
Check the EIN and if the numbers are different you will need to submit both.
If it's W2C, skip it.
If not, call the payroll department and ask.
I suspect this is W2C (W2 corrected) because the employer's W2 information was not prior to 02/28. It is necessary to file with the state / federal government and the company costs money to provide W2Cs to the federal government. Therefore, most companies will only offer the new (revised) W2 on W2C by the end of February.
Here are other options:
The company changes hands throughout the year.
The company changes its tax status throughout the year (for example: moving from SARL to a corporation or changing the SARL structure).
If you are a large company, you may have changed the structure of EIN. However, this is usually done at the beginning of the year (but can happen at any time). I have a client that changes every year. I don't understand the effects of taxes, but they have experienced tax advisors who understand. Some years have 11 EINs (tax identification number), sometimes 7, sometimes 10 etc.).
