AccuWage 2015

- Tuesday, October 20, 2015
The AccuWage 2015 application is now available to test wage reports in the current EFW2-EFW2C formats. The most current version of AccuWage 2015 works with current and prior year wage submissions. It is recommended that wage submitters uninstall prior versions of AccuWage before downloading the software for the current tax year.

AccuWage 2015 allows you, like previous years, to test your W2 Magnetic Media submissions before you upload them to the Social Security Administration. It will inform you of 4 levels of errors:

  1. 1.) Critical (stops the testing until corrected)
  3. 2.) Error (will not stop processing but must be corrected before submission)
  5. 3.) Alert (will not stop processing, but is recommended you review records and correct before submission)
  7. 4.) Info (will not stop processing, but should be corrected before submission). In each case you will be given the record numbers that are at issue

You can run this testing as many times as you want and once it is downloaded it will remain where you downloaded it so you can use it again when necessary.

Some common errors are the way a person’s name is entered, in particular if they are a Junior, Senior etc. There are rules regarding special characters within a person’s name. When there is an error, it will be identified by record number, as well as a brief description of what information is correct. This makes it easy to find and quickly fix the incorrect information.

To download AccuWage 2015 go to: www.ssa.gov/employer/accuwage.
