  • Hi experts,

    If any of you have clarification on the below, would greatly appreciate your input. SAP released note 2956914 regarding the 2020 W2 Forms; the note specifies a form number and details for the self-sealer form.

    However, there is a planned legal announcements for 10/8/2020 that the SAP will be changing the self-sealer layout, here is the text:

    • IRS has published a new version of Form W-2 for tax year 2020. There are changes to SSN, as well as Box 14 from form layout as such.
    • This is to let you know that SAP Form W-2 Self Sealer copy supported by SAP will be adjusted, according to the IRS released Form W-2 and its instructions.

    My question is can we order the self-sealer forms listed in 2956914, or will the upcoming changes render the form numbers listed useless?


    Thanks in advance!
