These directions do not lead you to print a w2. It leads you to print the w2interview which is useless to the employee and in my case only listed one of my employees CopyA even. This is terrible for record keeping. Hope I never get audited.
I appreciate your time today, cgarey,
Allow me step in and share some insights about printing prior W-2s in QuickBooks.
The steps provided by my peer @AlcaeusF should allow you to access old forms you have filed in QuickBooks. If you're unable to do so, you can print your employee's W-2 information in the updated version of the form. Let me walk you through the steps:
Before printing, please be reminded that the version of the form has been updated to 2018 and is not valid for filing. However, if your employee still needs to file the form, you can manually fill out an IRS W-2 form from the IRS website then have it printed for him.
That should get you to the right track, cgarey. Let me know if there's anything you need help with QuickBooks. I'll be happy to help you anytime.
I'm happy to guide you today so you'll be able to print or open the W-2 form for 2015, @ge1.
