File W-2 and W-3 Online

You can "order" W-2s and the W-3 forms from the IRS site, BUT you can not download the "scannable" W-3.

Google "W-3" and the PDF has this warning on the first page: "The official printed version of this IRS form is scannable, but the online version of it, printed from this website, is not. Do not print and file Copy A downloaded from this website with the SSA; a penalty may be imposed for filing forms that
can’t be scanned."

There is also links on that first page that links to those forms you can order.

However... you can file those forms free of charge on a Social Security site:

There are also some "easy-to-use" and cheap "efile" W-2/W-3 sites such as tax1099 and efile4biz.
