Extended Definition
DECOR notice, or decentralized correspondence, is a notice issued by the IRS when there is an error on the W-2 of an employee that could potentially cause problems within the payroll system. They are issued for several reasons including, but not limited to, typographical errors, incorrect social security number, unreported name or address changes and inaccurate records. Such a notice may send employee earnings into a suspended file and the issue must be dealt with by verifying or correcting the information on the employee’s W-2.
