At the end of the year, an employer must send Form W-2, generally known as the Wage and Tax Statement, to each employee and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Employees' annual salary and the amount of taxes deducted from their paychecks are listed on a W-2. Since employees are required to submit taxes on both the federal and state levels, W-2 forms are separated into sections for each.

Here’s how Form W-2 endpoint may be used:

  • Call Auth method to get the access token. This access token must be supplied in the request header as the ‘Bearer‘ token. Refer OAuth 2.0 Authentication for more information on JWT authentication and how to integrate with the subsequent requests.
  • Use ValidateForm method to validate the field level specifications of Form W-2 before creating the form.(Optional)
