You need to file all of your 2005 W-2s on your 2005 return, you do not file more than one return for a tax year. If you have already filed and the filing was incorrect you need to file Form 1040X to amend your return. Ultimately, if you do not correct your return, the IRS will figure it out and correct your return itself since W-2's are filed by the employer with the Social Security Administration and the IRS cross-checks filed returns with the W-2 information on file with SSA.
