How to complete employee's W2 forms (I have turbotax home and business)

TurboTax Home & Business can help you prepare W-2s and 1099s, but it won't help you manage your payroll.  When starting a new return, you will see two options, one is to "start a new individual tax return" and the other is "prepare w-2s and 1099s for my employees or contractors."

If you've already started your return, you can use the search box at the top right of the software. Just type w-2 and you will see a drop down list, from there, click w-2 for employee, prepare.  The first result should say "Jump to w-2 for employee prepare" and it will walk you through the process.

What software have you been using to prepare and file the payroll quarterlies throughout the year?  It should also have an option to prepare W2's.

You can do them 2 different ways from the Windows Desktop Home & Business program.  Either Online using Quick Employer Forms (QEF)  -or- directly on your computer with the built in W2/1099 Reporter.

In the Window's Home & Business Desktop program to Prepare W2s or 1099s, click the big blue button to Start a New Return or go up to File-New Tax Return.
Then on the next screen it asks What would you like to do?

If you get a screen with 2 choices, Check the second circle that says Prepare W-2s and 1099s for my employees or contractors.  Then that will expand and give you a choice to prepare them online or on your computer.

If you get a screen that says Continue your Tax Return and a box listing your returns then go up to FILE - New Tax Return again and you should get a box to pick the type of return you need to prepare.  Pick US Forms W-2/1099 Reporter
