Take Note: Social Security Administration
Reconciles Employees W-2s and Forms 941

Summer/Fall 1999

If you are an employer and think that all those W-2 forms you file with the Social Security Administration with Form W-3 annually and the Forms 941 that you file quarterly are never reconciled, think again.  Earlier this year the SSA announced that it had begun the process of reconciling the amounts reported on individual employee’s W-2s with employers’ Forms 941.  If the total amounts on the reported W-2s does not match the amounts reported on the employer’s Form 941, the SSA will send reconciliation notices to the employer.
