Social Security will require online W-2 reports in 2006

The Social Security Administration will require that employers file their annual W-2 reports over the Internet beginning in 2006, the retirement agency said in a notice in today's Federal Register.

SSA will not accept magnetic tapes and cartridges, beginning Jan.1, 2006, and floppy disks beginning Jan. 1, 2007. Instead, employers must file their wage reports electronically or use third-party preparers through the Business Services Online, a set of Internet services for companies to conduct business with the SSA.

The Magnetic Media Reporting and Electronic Filing publication can be found at www.socialsecurity.gov.
