Learn how to print W-2's of employees with foreign addresses.

Search Our Knowledgebase (Windows; U.S.)

If you have employees with foreign addresses, you can print or eFile their W-2s using the W-2 Preparer. The only difference is that you must indicate the foreign address information in different columns in the Preparer.

Follow these steps:

    • Enter the W-2 Preparer from the Forms Selection screen. Select the W-2 form listed and select to process the report.
      Note: Please note the process option may vary depending on your payroll software. 
    • Complete the Company Setup.
    • Continue to the W-2 Preparer.
    • Your foreign employees will be automatically detected and populate into the Preparer. 
    • The following rules apply when entering foreign addresses for applicable employees:  
      • If data is listed in the foreign address fields, you cannot have a US address (except address line 1 and 2).
      • Country must be two characters.
      • Foreign state/province cannot be blank if other data is entered.
      • Foreign postal code cannot be blank if other data is entered.
      • Foreign country cannot be blank if other data is entered.
      • Foreign Address Street address line 1 cannot be blank if foreign address data is entered.
    • When you have entered the employee's foreign address, the W-2 Preparer should look similar to this:
