What is a W-2 Form?

The IRS requires Frontline Work and EHR to report wage and salary information for employees on Form W-2. Your W-2 also reports the amount of federal, state and other taxes withheld from your paycheck. As a Frontline Work employee, the information on your W-2 is extremely important when preparing your tax return. To ensure you have it in time, the IRS requires your employer to send you a W-2 no later than January 31 following the close of the tax year, which is usually December 31.

The W-2 form is divided into boxes that report various items relating to your income. In box 1 of the W-2 you will find your annual wage and salary payments with the amount of federal tax withheld from it in box 2.

Since only a portion of your income is subject to the Social Security tax, you may find that box 3 reports an amount that is less than your total wages for the year. Other boxes on the W-2 form include your wages subject to Medicare tax, Social Security taxes that are withheld and information on your state income tax withholding, if applicable.
