  • 1.  W-2 Electronic File

    Posted Jan 24, 2019 12:24 PM

    Good Morning!
    This is my first year doing W-2's with GP.  We have two separate companies set up.  I registered with the SSA for a User ID and linked the information to the company I receive wages from.  Can I electronically file both companies using the same User ID/EIN # for both companies?  We asked our partner and they said best practice was to submit two different files (doing separately within the individual companies) but I could not find a link on the SSA site to link multiple companies to the same User ID.

    I have no documentation from my predecessor but I did find copies of the 2017 transmission confirmations with notes that the same "Submitter EIN" number was for used for both companies.  She had tried to change the EIN number but no success.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
