State Electronic and Magnetic Media W-2 Reporting Deadlines Approaching

It is important to be aware of approaching state deadlines for electronic and magnetic media reporting of Forms W-2 to be sure that you file timely. The first deadlines begin February 2. There is a new due date in Illinois - employers that have at least 250 employees and all payroll service providers must electronically file Forms W-2 with the Illinois Department of Revenue by February 15 (February 17, 2015, because February 15 is a Sunday and February 16 is a holiday).
