My employer is the same, but the name is different

When TurboTax asks if I received a W-2 from my employer, but they still have the old name, do I select yes?  Or do I select no so I can enter the new employer name that appears on my W2?

My employer is the same, but the name is different

You can do it either way. If you select 'Yes', you can edit the employer's name (if entering manually).

If you select 'No', you can enter a new W-2 form with the correct name. But be certain to delete the old W-2 form so you don't get hung up in the review before you file.
