Do I submit a Form W3 if I file online?
Posted Feb. 27, 2009 by Gabriel Hurley
It's the little things that aren't said in the instructions for these forms that keep driving me crazy.
Like, for example, that form W3 is created and transmitted to the IRS automatically when you file your W2's online with the Social Security Administration's Business Services Online.
I mean, it makes sense given that form W3 is specifically the "Transmittal of Wage and Tax Statements"... so if I file online there's my transmittal right there.
Still, in ten minutes of hunting I could find anywhere in the documentation, FAQs, or the instructions that simply said "If you file your W2's online, your W3 is filed automatically as well." It hinted at it, but I had to review the PDF of my electronic submission to be sure.
