Please help, I need to convert W2 2019 and W2 2018 to EF W2 format for Social Security, Please advise.

I'm here to help you with filing your W-2 form, isaac-arman.

 

The EFW2 format is used to report W-2 forms electronically with the SSA. Though, QuickBooks Online can electronically file W-2 forms, we're unable to download this type of format. The best option I can suggest is to download the W-2s from QuickBooks Online and use it as a reference when you file it to the SSA.

 

I understand that you need this format. I'll send feedback to our developers so they can consider implementing this in the future.

 

Leave a comment below if you have more questions. Have a great day!

I can guide you on how to get a copy of your 2018 W2, @W2 2018.

 

Let’s go to the Taxes menu and print a copy from there.

 

Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Taxes menu. 
  2. Select Payroll Tax.
  3. Click the Annual Forms link in the Forms section, 
  4. Select either All Employees or a specific employee name from the drop-down menu.
  5. Click the W-2, Copies B, C & 2 link. 
  6. Choose 2018 from the drop-down menu.
  7. Select View to launch Adobe Reader in a new window.
  8. Click the print icon on the Reader toolbar and simply click Print again.

You can also read this article for more details: How to print W-2s forms.

 

I also have an article that you can utilize in case you want your employees to view their paystubs and W-2 online: Invite employees to see pay stubs and W-2s online.

 

Know that I’m always around if you have other concerns or follow-up questions. Leave a reply below and I sprint back into action. Have a great day ahead!

Hi, @telephone.

 

I want to ensure you'll be able to file your W2s accordingly.

 

The steps provided by my JasroV above are about getting a copy of W2s from QuickBooks Online. If you need to prepare the form for Social Security Administration (SSA), you can follow the workaround provided by AlexV. You can either download the W-2s from QuickBooks Online and use it as a reference when you file it to the SSA. Or, you may use a third-party converter by looking for a supported app through the app center.

 

For your helpful hints about filing W2s to SSA, you can open these links:

 

 

For more tips about QuickBooks and payroll, you can also review the topics from our help articles.

 

Please let me know how else I can help you with your payroll forms or W2s. I'm always here to help. Have a good one!
