Efile Electronic Reporting Options

Annual Wage Reports (W-2)

Introduction  Previous Topic  Next Topic

In addition to creating/appending the W2REPORT transmittal file, the Electronic Reporting Options provides functionality to Edit Submitter and Correspondence information, specify a new destination folder for the W2REPORT transmittal file and exclude specific states and/or foreign entities.


Important Many states will accept EFW2 transmittals. If your state is among the list, you can use this dialog to create a state specific transmittal to be transmitted directly to your state's Dept. of Revenue. The next section discusses specific state wage reporting in more detail.
