      I need to correct the last name on a W2 in my 2016 Yr End Wage file.  It’s been corrected on the card.  When I’m in Edit W-2 and pull the individual up, it won’t let me correct the spelling.  I have an IT person that works here and can get in the table.  Is that the only way to correct the spelling?

      The only other way to change it is to change it on the Employee Card and then recreate your year-end wage file. Having your IT guy changing at the SQL level will be the way to go.

      Hayley,
      If you do decide to remove your year end wage file and rebuild it (not hard to do) then make sure you know what tax update you have installed.  If you’ve installed the 2017 round one update, those tax rates will be used when you recreate your year-end wage file and it can create quite a few issues.  You want to make sure you are recreating the year-end wage file with the year-end update tax rate info.
      Thanks
      Windi

      To my knowledge, the only tax information that is captured by the year-end wage file is the FICAM and FICAS information. Since 2017 is not the same as 2016, you’ll want to edit the numbers to match the 2016 figures. After editing the tax table, you can go ahead and reproduce your year-end wage file. Don’t forget to switch the tax table back to the 2017 values after you have created your wage file. The income tax withholding percentages shouldn’t have any affect on the year-end wage file.
      Kind regards,
      Leslie
