I printed my W-2s on scratch paper to make sure they printed correctly. The control number printed correctly. Now when I try to print the W-2s the control number starts at 1 and goes to 9, then starts over at 0 and prints to 9 again, and so on. How can print it correctly?


In the Print W-2 Forms window, set the starting control number at 001. If you have over 1000 employees you will need to set the starting control number at 0001.
