CWU: Will there be a verification code on Form W-2?
For tax years 2018 and prior, the IRS was testing a W-2 Verification Code with certain Payroll Service Providers (PSPs). Per the IRS, "Because of new wage and income reporting requirements, the IRS announced it would discontinue the Form W-2 Verification Code pilot for the 2019 tax year." See W-2 Verification Code for more information.
The verification code was not incorporated on Forms W-2 in CWU.
