Reminder: California Schedule W-2, Wage and Tax Statement is only available for paper-filed tax returns generated from tax preparation software.

  • Tax returns generated from tax preparation software should include a printed version of Schedule W-2 after the signature page of Forms 540, 540NR Long or Short, and 540 2EZ. If you file a computer-prepared tax return with a Schedule W-2, do not submit a copy of employer provided federal Forms W-2.

  • If you used Forms 540, 540NR Long or Short, and 540 2EZ from our website or from the tax booklet, enclose, butdo not staple your state copy of federal Forms W-2, W-2G, and 1099, and California withholding Forms 592-B and 593 showing California tax withheld with the tax return.
