IRS W-2 Format
The Form W-2 is divided into several boxes for reporting various items related to your income. In Box 1 of W-2 form, you will find your annual salary and wage payments and the federal tax amount deducted in box 2. Not all of your income is subject to a social insurance tax, but only part of it, so you may find in box 3 that the amount reported is lower than your total salary for that year. Your wages subject to Medicare tax, Social Security taxes that are withheld, and information on your state income tax withholding are included in the other boxes of the w 2 form.
