Why am I getting the message Import Error - Employer Name is Over 35 Characters

When customers manually enter W-2's that have employer names over 35 characters we are currently not limiting the characters and customers receive the error Employer name is over 35 characters.


In order to resolve the issue on your own you may delete characters at the end of the Employer Name. The IRS typically uses the first 4 letters to match the EIN for validation purposes.
