What Is Form W-2?
Form W-2, Wages, and Tax Statement is a mandatory requirement by the IRS for employers working in the jurisdiction of the United States.
Any business or employer carrying out business in the US who pays salary (cash or non-cash) to employees against the services must file the W-2. The lower limit for salary paid is $600 or more per year.
The formal definition of W-2 can be as follows:
“It’s the form filed by an employer to report the withholding taxes, annual wages, and other contributions from the paychecks of the employee. W-2 has to be filed for every tax year and is distributed in different parts, each reporting a specific aspect of the pay stub. It contains information of withheld taxes, state taxes, medicare & social security taxes, employees’ gross wages, etc.”
Every employer is bound to file W-2 by the IRS; this measure is mandatory to ensure accurate reporting of withheld taxes and contributions.
Besides the information on wages and withheld taxes, the Form W-2 also contains information like deferred compensation, contributions, tip income, dependent care benefits, etc.
