How do I change my W-2 settings?

The W-2 Settings window

The W-2 Settings window can be used to set the program to populate state and local wages fields on the W-2 form.  Changes made here will apply to all payers in the program.  The available options are:

  • Set State 1 Wages equal to Gross Wages:  Forces State 1 wages to equal Gross Regular (Subject Wages) on the W-2 Returns screen.
  • Set State 2 Wages equal to Gross Wages:  Forces State 2 wages to equal Gross Regular (Subject Wages) on the W-2 Returns screen.
  • Set Local 1 Wages equal to Gross Wages:  Forces Local 1 wages to equal Gross Regular (Subject Wages) on the W-2 Returns screen.
  • Set Local 2 Wages equal to Gross Wages:  Forces Local 2 wages to equal Gross Regular (Subject Wages) on the W-2 Returns screen.
  • Warn if Recipient TIN is left blank during entry:  Forces an error message to display when the user attempts to select OK or Save and the Recipient TIN is left blank.
