Attached is your agency's 941/L3 Reconciliation Packet for the quarter ending December 31, 1997. Basic procedures for reconciling are found in Section 4.02 of the OSUP Standard Accounting Procedures Manual. This reconciliation must be completed before W-2's can be distributed to employees.

  2. If W-2cs for 1997 are needed, the Reconciliation Worksheet and W-2 Summary Report for the quarter ending 12/31/97 must be amended to account for W-2c adjustments.
