Hi Tara45,

 

You'll have to prepare Form W-2c, Corrected Wage and Tax Statement, for each employee who received an incorrect W-2 form. Let's also prepare W-3c, Transmittal of Corrected Wage and Tax Statements, to accompany the W-2c forms. Then, file both W-2c and W-3c forms to the government.

 

You can obtain these amended forms through this link: IRS General Instructions for Forms W-2 and W-3.

 

Then, you can report the cost of health coverage on Form W-2. I'll guide you how.

 

  1. Go to Taxes and select Payroll Tax.
  2. Select Annual Forms.
  3. Choose W-2, Copies B,C & 2.
  4. On the Printable Employee Copies: Form W-2 page, select the Health Coverage link.
  5. If this is the first time you've visited this page, click on go here.
  6. If you need to make changes, select Need to update your Health Coverage amounts in box 12?.
  7. Enter the dollar amount for each employee to appear on Form W-2, box 12 code DD.

You can also learn through this link about the Health Coverage reporting requirements: Reporting employer-sponsored health coverage.

 

For more details on how to amend filed W-2 forms, refer to this article: Correct or amend W-2 forms. This link provides a detailed explanation or instructions from correcting, printing, and filing the form.

 

I've also added a link for more tips and managing your payroll in QuickBooks Online (QBO): Payroll 101. It contains essential info you need with payroll tasks, from paying employees to taking care of taxes.
