Businesses of all sizes can plan now to reduce 2012 wage W-2 reporting paperwork. Register to use Social Security Business Services Online. There is no charge.
Once registered, your business can electronically transmit W-2 data and verify employee Social Security numbers online.
Does your firm handle payroll services for multiple employers? With one registration, you can use the Social Security business services for all of your clients.
More will be posted about SSA Business Services Online. For now, go to http://www.ssa.gov/employer/ for details and instructions. Note the customer support link at lower left of that page. This is specifically to help employers with wage reporting and other business services, not individual Social Security benefit questions.
