Not all Forms W-2 are eligible for importing into the TaxAct program.  Whether a W-2 is eligible for importing into the TaxAct program is based on the Employer Identification Number (EIN) on your W-2.

To enter the EIN on your Form W-2, and import the Form W-2 you received into the TaxAct program (if you need help accessing Form W-2, go to our Form W-2 - Entering in the TaxAct Program FAQ):

  1. From within your Form W-2, on the screen titled We'll start with your W-2 or Let's start your next W-2, type the Employer Identification Number.
  2. If your Form W-2 is eligible for importing in the TaxAct program, the next screen will be titled Import W-2 - Authentication Credentials.
  3. Continue with the interview process to import your Form W-2.
