Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Accounting CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline for quarterly payroll tax forms.

Links to our most popular payroll tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

Use the Verify W-2s screen to specify whether or not employee W-2 information has been verified, either on a client basis or on an employee by employee basis, prior to processing W-2 forms for client.

Choose Actions > Verify W-2s.

Note that once you have verified clients or employees for a given W-2 processing year, taking any of the following actions (that affect that processing year) for a verified employee or client will cause the application to unverify the information again.
