You can still probably file anyway, however you should probably get a corrected copy from your employer.  The employer should fix this error quickly. Otherwise there is a chance your return could be rejected.  You don't need to send your W-2's in when you file with TurboTax to the IRS, however, in case you were ever to be audited you would want a corrected copy for your records.
