Premier Payroll Form W-3 or Summary of Filed W-2s

The Premier Payroll Service automatically files an electronic Form W-2 with the Social Security Administration (SSA) on behalf of Premier Payroll users. For this reason, a Form W-3 is not required and not filed therefore, Premier Payroll Service does not store copies of Form W-3.

A different type of file called EFW2 is used by Premier Payroll Service to report W-2 forms electronically with the SSA. This file contains all Premier Payroll users' data thus, cannot be sent to individual payroll users.

To get W-3 information, payroll users can:

1. Confirm directly from the agency by registering on the Social Security Administration web site at

2. Download the W-2 file from Hightail and go to the last page to view the W-3 information.
