The due date for filing your form W2’s with the Social Security Administration is January 31, 2018. Extensions to file these forms are much more difficult to get this year. The IRS is only granting extensions in cases of extreme hardship or uncontrollable circumstances. The penalties for failure to file the forms on time have also increased, as have the penalties for filing forms without the required social security numbers. It is important that employers start immediately verifying they have all the information they need and it is correct! So much for a kinder, gentler IRS.
