Any employer that holds a valid North Dakota Income Tax Withholding account is eligible to upload W-2 and 1099 information. If you have not yet registered for an Income Tax Withholding account, you must apply and receive your account number before you register for W2/1099 Upload.

Every employer is required to file a copy of all Federal Form W-2s and any Federal Form 1099’s issued, regardless of whether or not state income tax is withheld, with the Office of State Tax Commissioner to report income earned during the calendar year. This requirement applies even if an employer is not required to register for North Dakota income tax withholding purposes. In addition to the information required to be shown on W-2 or 1099 for federal tax purposes, the copy of W-2 or 1099 filed with North Dakota must show the total amount of North Dakota wages or income earned and North Dakota income tax withheld for the calendar year. Every business with 10 or more information returns will be required to electronically file their W-2s or 1099s.

W-2 corrections should be made using Federal Form W-2C. Instructions can be found on the Social Security Administration website at or by calling the IRS at 1-800-829-3676. A paper copy of Federal Form W-2C must be submitted with the state Form 307 to the Office of State Tax Commissioner.

If you need assistance contact the Office of State Tax Commissioner by email at or by phone 701-328-1257

To upload a W-2 file, select “Upload/Enter W-2s” on the left navigation panel in TAP.
