Submitting files

E-filing is mandatory for those employers/payers with more than 50 employees or payees. Your identification number is your 9 digit State of Nebraska Identification Number found on the lower left hand corner of your Form W-3N. Don't include the "21-" or preceding "0s". Your password (PIN) is the 5-digit number printed on your Form W-3N. You must use your identification number and password to file over the internet. 

You will receive a confirmation number that the file transfer was successful and the file was received. Print a copy of the confirmation number screen for your records.

Filing Forms W-2 and 1099 for multiple taxpayers (bulk filing), may contact DOR to receive an ID and PIN that will give them access to the online filing program. To receive the ID and PIN contact Taxpayer’s Assistance at 800-742-7474 (NE and IA) or 402-471-5729.

Use paper Forms W-2, 1099-MISC, 1099-R, and W-2G if it is necessary to correct individual payee records which were originally e-filed.

Any taxpayer mandated to make the income tax withholding payments electronically, must also file the Form 941N and Form W-3N electronically. DOR will not mail Forms 941N or W-3N to anyone required to pay electronically, or to anyone who has e-filed Forms 941N or W-3N in the past. DOR encourages all employers to file and pay electronically.

From our home page, click on the“File/Pay your Return,” select “Income Tax Withholding E-file/Pay,” and log in to file the Form W-3N.

  • Login using your company’s Nebraska ID Number. DO NOT INCLUDE THE INITIAL "21‑"
  • Each withholding account is provided with a PIN, printed on the lower left‑hand corner of your Form W‑3N. Use this PIN for logging on to the secured website.
  • Print a copy of your Form W‑3N for your records.

Successful filings will display a reference number. Be sure to print this notification for your records.
