FAQ - Form W-3C

What is the purpose of Form W-3C?
Employers use the W-3C to document each employee's wages and benefits, and to prepare the withholding statement that an employer will send to the IRS on behalf of the employee. Who is required to submit Form W-3C? The W-3C must be submitted by each employer who has 20 or more employees per year and whose wages and related deductions total at least 25,000. Must an employer use Form W-3C before submitting the withholding statement to the IRS? Generally, because the W-3C is an informational document, an employer is required to use the Form W-3C before submitting the withholding statement to the IRS. The W-3C only requires that employers send the IRS the information on wages that the employer has already recorded, such as in an employee's or former employee's Form W-2. There are a few different situations where an employer must use Form W-3C before filing the withholding statement to the IRS: When there is a serious error in the original wages reported in an employee's W-2. When the wage information the employer has already recorded is different from the W-2 wage information that the employer's payroll services provider received in computing the employee's tax withholding. A joint employer and employee under the IRS's “two-tiered system.” In this system, an employer and joint employer are required to report wages to the IRS on different Forms W-2. For example, the employer will either report wages only on Form W-2 of the joint employer or Form W-2 of the employee for whom it acts as the employer. Where can an employer find more information about Form W-3C? If an employer uses Form W-3C under a serious error in wages reported in an employee's W-2, the employer must: File a Form 8949 with the U.S. Department of Treasury. File a correction with the IRS. See the Instructions for Form 8949. An employer who knows that one of its employees was a nonresident alien for the entire tax year or who knows the nonresident alien's net earnings for the tax year and has filed Form 1040 for this year, is an S corporation (or foreign person in the case of a domestic corporation) and the employee is a U.S. worker, does not have to file Form 8949 with the USDA.
Who should complete Form W-3C?
In general, Form W-3C should be completed by employees covered by the minimum wage, overtime, or other minimum wage and overtime requirements. Certain employees, however, require special forms. These include full-time student assistants, unpaid volunteers, employees exempt from overtime because of their training or experience, and certain farm employees. When should I complete this information? You must complete this form annually. The information you provide on this form can be used by the Department of Labor (DOL) to calculate your overtime or minimum wage rates. When you use these calculations to determine your wage rate, the federal government gives you a minimum hourly wage of 7.25 for the period your pay period begins on the first day of the month beginning October 1 and ends on June 30 of the following year. If you have multiple employers, and you decide which of your employers to report and which to exclude on Form W-3C, you may wish to use the Form W-3C instructions. How do I get a copy of my Form W-3C? You should check with your former employer, your supervisor, or your former employer's human resources office for a copy of your form. Can I get the information in my W-3C form from more than one employer? Yes. If your former employer reported all of your information on the original form, you may be able to get the information from more than one employer. However, be careful to make sure you only report information you and your former employer reported to the DOL. For example, the Wage and Hour Division does not allow employers to report more than one type of employer. Also, employers may not use the information that they report to the DOL. What if my former employer reported more information than I reported? Many former employees find themselves stuck with a problem they did not create. This can often happen when a former employee reports a new employer after taking her/his employer off of their Form W-2. A former employee who has already found a new job may therefore be required to provide a more detailed W-2 form for her/his new employer. Many of the questions in the W-2 are specific to a new employer, and it may be difficult or impossible for her/him to provide an adequate answer in a way that fits with the general information in the Form W-3C for his old employer.
When do I need to complete Form W-3C?
If at any time during the year a business (business-use) and other type of entity (other-use) are used by a US employee or client (with or without compensation) at the same place of business, (1) the business-use must be paid in at least 12 monthly installments (or such greater amount on a rolling 12-month basis as provided in the Instructions for Form W-3C) or must be paid to the IRS (for example, on a quarterly basis), and (2) the other-use use is not paid in at least 12 monthly installments or must be paid to the IRS. The “business-use” must be paid in at least 12 monthly installments (or such greater amount on a rolling 12-month basis as provided in the Instructions for Form W-3C) or must be paid to the IRS (for example, on a quarterly basis), and the other-use is not paid in at least 12 monthly installments or must be paid to the IRS. Why did I receive an “N” on Form 8886? If you received a Form 8886 because the business you report is not paid in full on time -- or at all -- and the IRS is withholding taxes on your unpaid balance, you have an “overpayment” on your taxes and should submit a copy of the IRS Form 1040, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return (Form 1040NR), U.S. Individual Income Tax Return (Form 1040NR-EZ), or U.S. Individual Income Tax Return (Form 1040NR-SP) showing the difference between the amount withheld on your unpaid amounts and the amounts of your taxes that have not yet been withheld. See Pub. 55 for more information.

Can I create my own Form W-3C?
In general, there are two ways of creating your own web forms. You can use free software built upon the W3C standards, or you can develop your own custom form technology. Which is better? You could try both and find that it works fine for some types of forms; there is no real winner. The fact is, any web application can be made simpler or more complicated by making use of forms provided by other people; either they are good forms, in which case you will be able to add functionality through HTML5 to them, or they are bad forms, in which case your system will probably be more complicated. The good thing about creating your own forms is that you can write your own template language and create your own custom forms for your business. As a bonus, it is easy to share your template in other web applications because you are using the same template for all of your web applications. If you cannot write your own template language, then you can use what is available from the W3C. Here are the steps for creating your own web form: Download the HTML Forms plugin for Firefox from. Click the “install” button. Click Add Form. In “Web Form” (or “web form”), choose the type of form from the drop-down and set the title and description. You may also use clickable buttons for this. Choose the format of the form such as HTML, XML, or Plain Text. If you have previously been using a plain text form and prefer so, choose the Plain Text tab. Click “Finish” on the Form dialog. How do I create custom elements for web forms? You can either modify the default forms by creating individual elements for a web form, or you can create your own web element templates so that all the elements (like buttons, labels, etc.) exist for the web form you have defined. The former is a much simpler way to modify standard W3C forms using CSS and JavaScript, and the latter is a much more flexible way to create custom templates. The “Create custom elements” link on the “Web Form” page describes how you can generate these elements. Click OK in the “Create new element for web form” dialog. Select the “Custom Elements” tab on the navigation panel. From the Elements drop down list, scroll down to “Form Components”. Click Add Component and choose the W3C Form Components template. Click OK.
What should I do with Form W-3C when it’s complete?
Form W-3C has to be filed and used. It has to be filed and used by people who work for you. When that's done, you can do with it whatever you like. The same thing is true for your W-4. It must be filled out and used by people who will work for you. When that's done, you can do with it whatever you like. When your W-4 is submitted to the federal government, it will be a Public Records request. Your employer will fill it out and file it with the federal government. At the end of your tax year, the IRS will send you a “return” to file. It will be in your name and in plain language. It will state what tax they are withholding, and you just have to pay them. No questions asked. You are entitled to make corrections, to make changes, to correct the errors they've made, to correct the figures, and to make changes to your tax return. Your employer should correct any errors that are identified. The employer has the obligation to file it using your Social Security Number, and the IRS has the obligation to file it using your social security number and your actual tax return. To file it electronically, you will file it at IRS.gov, on your own personal computer, using their “Click-To-File” software. The IRS has made it easier than ever to file your tax return online. IRS.gov offers more options than ever for filing your return. They will help you with any questions or concerns you may have, and work with you to make sure you follow the correct filing schedule, so you do not end up with back tax liability. In some states, you must mail your tax return if you've lost money or want to correct an understatement, but only to the government you owe the money to. Other states may allow you to file it online. You can use a free IRS.gov tax preparation tool called IRS2Go, or use their free phone software available at. Your employer should make any necessary corrections, changes or updates, so you'll get what you are owed.
How do I get my Form W-3C?
If you believe you may have filed your W-3C by mistake, or if you need help with Form W-3C, you may be able to file a claim for a refund with the IRS. The process for filing a claim for a refund involves two steps. In this step-by-step process, you will need to complete the following forms for each year and then file them by the due date for each year. Filing Requirements The Form W-3C is a single annual filing for all employees of a United States company that were entitled to receive compensation payments from their employer, even though they were self-employed, unemployed, or not paid at all, or did not receive any compensation payments for the year. These payments are based on the “wage-loss” formula explained earlier. Form W-3C must be filed by January 31 of each year, to ensure that it is received by the IRS by January 31 of the following year. Income Tax Returns You may be entitled to a refund (with interest) for the tax year you submitted Form W-3C. However, if your return was incomplete or returned as “not required,” the IRS will ask you to provide more information. Failure to complete the information on your return as required may result in a refund being delayed. If you did not file with the proper Form W-3C and do not return a properly completed Form W-3C, the IRS may require you to pay a late refund penalty for filing that type of return. However, this penalty is reduced if you timely file and pay any other penalty due. The IRS estimates your penalty with respect to Form W-3C, under penalty of 3% per year the penalty is paid. If you anticipate that you will file Form W-3C with the correct information, it is better to obtain a return that is complete than filing a late return in which there is not enough information to calculate a correct liability. For details, see the Instructions for Form W-3C, which can also be found on the IRS website at. Additional Information for the Form W-3C You may want more information about these forms and their requirements related to taxes owed, or in preparation for your tax return. The following additional publications may be helpful.
What documents do I need to attach to my Form W-3C?
You must attach documents to your Form W-3C when you or your employer provides you with an annual statement that gives you a basis for your employment wage; gives you a statement of any fringe benefits that you received; and tells you the amount and form of your Social Security and/or railroad retirement benefits. What should I do when I receive my Form W-3C? Submit your Form W-3C to your employer for the applicable filing period (except for the beginning of a calendar year). Send copies of the statement of employment benefits and any other supplemental documents that you request, either before or after you file your Form W-3C with the IRS. This will give you time to prepare any additional information required for a timely filing when you file your Form W-3C with the IRS. Submit the correct and complete information for your filing year for Schedule C, Claim For Refund For Employment Taxes You Received. This may take up to 120 days after you file your Form W-3C if you're filing electronically. If you're filing by mail, prepare the information, then submit your Form W-3C no later than December 31 of the tax year for which you're filing: If you're an employee, your Form W-3C must be sent within 120 days of filing the Form W-3C and the IRS is required to process it no later than the first day of the next tax year (January 1-March 31). It may be the last day of the tax year. For 2017, this means the last day of February 2018. And the IRS is required to process it no later than the first day of the next tax year (January 1-March 31). It may be the last day of the tax year. For 2017, this means the last day of February 2018. If you're self-employed, your Form W-3C must be filed no later than February 15 of the first year following your self-employment tax return. If you're the employee or self-employed, use Form 1040-ES to send the Form W-3C to the IRS within 90 days after you file the Form W-3C. I'm self-employed and have an outstanding balance of tax due from the day I filed my tax return.
What are the different types of Form W-3C?
The following chart is a summary of the forms and other instructions that are found on most W-3C-related materials used by our office. Form W-3C contains many instructions, questions, specifications, and procedures that we expect your agency or company to follow. In general, these instructions should all be consistent with the W-3C. Form W-3C includes statements that have the force of law and may be used by us (with or without modification) to enforce an agency's obligations under the W-3C. Do I need to complete this form once or more than once? While there is not much we can do to help determine your need to complete the original W-3C, in some cases you may be able to use the original form to assist you in interpreting the W-3C as well as to show the intent of Congress. Do I need to know your agency? If possible, we recommend that you review and confirm the information listed below with your agency. For this you should have a copy of your agency's W-3C or other related literature. Please note that if you have a small business, do not include the agency identification number. What do I need to know about whether I am a small business? Most agencies are required to comply with the provisions of the Small Business Act (SBA) and the SBA regulations implementing those provisions, which make it mandatory for the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to enforce a number of federal law specifically relating to employers who employ 10 or fewer people through their place of business, including the following: (1) the prohibition against hiring only the highest paid individual for any employment relationship; (2) the prohibition against making a written offer to any employee an offer to a lower-paying individual for that employment relationship (i.e., the prohibition against “quotas”); (3) discrimination in terms or conditions of employment; (4) the prohibition against unlawful discrimination in hiring on the terms or conditions of employment; and (5) the exclusion of any individual from hiring because of age or disability. (The EEOC may be able to use different requirements for small non-profit employers such as sole proprietorship.) Most of the requirements in the SBA and SBA regulations apply to employers with ten or fewer employees.
How many people fill out Form W-3C each year?

Most of the remaining 5.5% are filled out by non-U.S. citizens who work overseas to support their family and earn an hourly wage. How many W-4 forms are there? We estimate that 2.7 million W-4 forms and 7.9 million W-5 forms were filed in 2012, representing approximately 3% of all U.S. workers. Of these, 4.7 million were filled out by U.S. citizens with U.S. incomes and the remaining 11.6 million are filled out by foreign citizens who work or volunteer at jobs for which an income tax is not levied. We estimate that 1.8 million foreign citizens filled out W-5 forms and 5,400 foreign workers filled out W-5s in the agriculture sector. How many foreign citizens filled out W-2s? In 2012, we estimate that 11,500 foreign workers filed W-2s on behalf of U.S. citizens, representing 0.8% of all workers filing tax returns. The number of foreign workers filing W-2s for the agriculture sector is unknown. How many foreign workers fill out tax forms from all other U.S. industries? We estimate that 2.2 million foreign workers filled out returns from all other industries during 2012, representing 15% of those workers. The vast majority of foreign workers filling W-2 forms is in the services' industry: 1.1 million from construction and 0.3 million from tourism. The remaining 5.8 million foreign workers fill out W-4s, Form W-2s and W-9 forms. How much of a burden did the foreign tax credit impose on U.S. taxpayers? As of 2009 the credit covered 80% of foreign workers under 30 on their income tax returns. It covered an additional 5% from the previous year, and 10% from the immediately preceding year. As of 2012, the tax credit had reached 97.4% of that portion of the workforce whose earnings were below 150,000 in 2010.
