Running a small business is often a 24/7 endeavor. Managing employees, inventory, scheduling, services and marketing can be challenging for small business owners — even in normal times. Although the COVID-19 pandemic has been testing all of us, it has been especially challenging for small business owners.
If you’re a small business owner or you work for one, the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) online suite of services can help make life easier. Our business services allow you to file W-2/W-2Cs online and verify your employees’ names and SS numbers against our records.
Our online services at www.ssa.gov/employer will save you valuable time when you need information on filing electronic W-2s and verifying Social Security numbers. Small business owners can also take advantage of the SSA’s Business Services Online at www.ssa.gov/bso/bsowelcome.htm.
Small business owners must register to use this free service, which also offers fast and secure online W-2 filing options to Certified Public Accountants, enrolled agents and individuals who process W-2s and W-2Cs.
