Important Payroll message regarding 2020 electronic W-2 tax forms

The following message is shared on behalf of Payroll Services.

The University will issue W-2s to all employees by January 31, 2021. If you are a new employee or you have not previously elected to receive an electronic W-2, please enroll using the following instructions:

    1. In Workday, click the Pay Worklet.
    2. In the View section, click My Tax Documents (Click More for additional options).

Benefits of receiving your W-2 electronically:

Faster: Electronic W-2s will be available up to two weeks sooner than printed and mailed forms, and they can be viewed anywhere with internet access. Additionally, they can be easily downloaded into tax software, reducing the risk of keying errors and the time it takes to file taxes and receive returns.

Greener: Viewing forms online helps protect the environment by cutting down on printed materials.

Safer: Secure electronic distribution helps protect your confidential information.
