How can I change the address on a W-2 once I have archived it if a previous employee just informed today ?

Hello, @ rockawayanimalho.

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community for support. I'd be glad to provide information with changing the address on an archived W-2 form.

 

If there's a mistake on an already-filed W-2 form, you can correct it by filing a Form W-2c, which is a Corrected Wage and Tax Statement.

 

When filing Form W-2c, it's sent to the Social Security Administration and must be accompanied by Form W-3c, which is a Transmittal of Corrected Wage and Tax Statements. Corrections reported on Form W-2c might require you to file Form 941-X, Adjusted Employer's Quarterly Federal Tax Return or Claim for Refund.

 

Refer to the General Instructions for Forms W-2c and W-3c, which is a section of the IRS General Instructions for Forms W-2 and W-3.

 

For additional information about how to correct and amend W-2 forms, here is a detailed article: Correct or Amend W-2 forms

 

Touch base with me after trying the steps above. Feel free to drop a line if there's anything else I can help with. Have a good rest of your day!
