What is the seven digit number that appears on our W2 forms in the Employees name/address box?Thanks,ANN


Thank you for posting here in the Community, agrochmal.

I can share some information about the boxes in your W2 form.

Are you referring to the box below Box c - Employer's name, address, and ZIP code? If yes, that's Box d - Control number. This is a code that identifies your unique W-2 form in your employer's records. However, QuickBooks does not supply this information.

However, if you’re referring to Boxes e and f - Employee's name and address, that’s the information on the employee's Social Security card which is from your employee’s record.

Check what other boxes in your W-2 means by going to this article: How QuickBooks populates W-2.

That's it. However, if you mean something else, let me know. I'm always here to here to help. Have a good rest of the day.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
