Good morning. There is nothing in the instructions for Form W-2c to indicate entering anything but the amount for state wages. I would simply enter the correct amount there and submit this to your state's department. Hope this helps, Bill
And if the amount is zero, just leave it blank? The Instructions on W2c say for box 16 refer to state for specific reporting information. I can't find anything about state reporting. Specifically California.
This is a federal form, so you won't find CA-specific items in the instructions. If the original W-2 showed CA wages, put that amount in the Previously Reported column and $0 in the Correct Information column. Don't forget to file a W-3C as well. Thanks, Bill
Got it, thanks
