How to E-file Form W-2 with ExpressIRSForms

That W-2 Form deadline is just a week away so if you haven’t already filed, it’s definitely the time to start looking into doing so!

Luckily, you’ve landed upon ExpressIRSForms, one of the best places for fashionably late filers. We’re an IRS-authorized e-file provider, and our program’s built with tons of features to help you get your W-2 filing done easily and quickly - sometimes in as little as just a few minutes!

So how does it work? Keep reading, and we’ll tell ya!

First, if you don’t have an ExpressIRSForms account, you’ll need to create one. Just go to www.ExpressIRSForms.com and click the “Register” button in the upper right hand corner. Fill out your basic information on this page:

And click “Create Account.” You can also use the Facebook or Google registration options at the bottom of the page.

Once you’re logged in, click the big orange “Start New Form” button on your Dashboard. Then you’ll see this window appear:

Go ahead and click the “W-2” button to continue to the next screen. From here, you’ll enter your employer details, including the name, EIN, address, and contact info. Once you’ve filled out this data, click “Next” for another pop-up that’ll ask you how you’d like to enter your employee information:

If you only have a few employees to file for, you can choose to enter their information individually. Or, if you have tons of employees and want to enter all their data at once, you can select the Multi-Data Upload option to bulk upload your info.

Once you’ve entered in your employees’ basic and financial information that’s needed for the W-2 Forms, you’ll be taken to a summary screen where you can view each of your W-2s to confirm they’re ready for filing. From this screen, you can also add more forms for this employer or even add another employer to file W-2 Forms for before you complete your filing.

After you’ve confirmed everything is accurate, click the “Continue” button to go to the next step, which is the “Choose Services” page. When you e-file with ExpressIRSForms, your forms are automatically e-filed with the federal agency they’re required to go to - in this case, the Social Security Administration. By clicking the “Choose Plan” icons on this page, you’ll be able to decide if you’d like to include state filing and postal mailing with your order as well:

Just an FYI - postal mailing means we’ll print and mail your recipient copies for you the very next business day after you order!

Once your order looks complete, click “Continue” to move along in the payment process. Review your order details on the next screen and click “Continue” again. Before you can e-file, you’ll need to enter your credit card details to pay our one-time transmittal fee to send your files along to the appropriate agencies.

Enter your credit card info, click “Continue,” then click the green “Transmit” button on the next page and your done! Your forms are sent and your stress levels should be no more worse for the wear!

If you have any questions during your filing process, you can always reach out to our customer support team. We’re here to help anytime!
