  • Date: Sept. 20, 2016

Hello from Melanie Piccin at the Washington State Department of Retirement Systems (in our role as the State Social Security Administrator).

This rather informal looking email is being sent as a courtesy to help the IRS and SSA spread the word about the due date for your 2016 Forms W-2 and W-3. Below is an excerpt (highlighted and bolded by me) from the IRS Publication entitled 2016 General Instructions for Forms W-2 and W-3:

Future Developments

For the latest information about developments related to Forms W-2 and W-3 and their instructions, such as legislation enacted after they were published, go to www.irs.gov/w2.

What's New

New due date for filing with SSA. The due date for filing 2016 Forms W-2, W-2AS, W-2CM, W-2GU, W-2VI, W-3 and W-3SS with the SSA is now January 31, 2017, whether you file using paper forms or electronically.

I do not have any information beyond the information in this email. If you have questions or concerns, I recommend:

Kind regards,
