According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, the 28.8 million small businesses in the United States represent 99.7 percent of all U.S. businesses, and employ 56.8 million people.
Running a small business can be a 24/7 endeavor. Managing employees, inventory, scheduling, services, and marketing can be challenging. If you are a small business owner or you work for one, we can help make your life easier with our suite of services. Our services allow you to file W-2/W-2Cs online and verify your employees’ names and Social Security numbers against our records.
If you run a business, make us your first stop at socialsecurity.gov/employer. It will save you valuable time when you need information on W-2s, electronic filing, and verifying Social Security numbers. Small business owners can also take advantage of our Business Services Online at socialsecurity.gov/bso/bsowelcome.htm.
You must register to use this free service, which also offers fast, free and secure online W-2 filing options to CPAs, enrolled agents, and individuals who process W-2s and W-2Cs.
The publication socialsecurity.gov/pubs/EN-05-10034.pdf provides more information about electronic wage reporting.
