Form W-2 Will Be Available Online
November 10, 2010
Employees will be able to access their W-2s online (E-W2) for 2010 tax reporting using WISE, the online site for employee information. This is a new feature available to employees. Employees can still opt to receive the paper form.
To receive the Form W-2 electronically, employees must give their consent. To do this:
- Log into WISE.unh.edu
- Access employee tab, then ‘tax forms’
- Review the text; consent by clicking the box
- Hit ‘submit’ at the bottom of the page
E-W2 employees will not receive a printed paper Form W-2 mailed to their home address.
USNH is required to have W-2 information available by Jan. 31. The deadline is the same online and printed forms. In years past, the information has been available sooner. If that is the case this year, an announcement will be made.
Will the E-W2 be the same as the printed Form -W2?
Yes, the electronic form contains the same information, boxes and format as the employee would receive if they received a printed Form W-2.
Will the E-W2 be available by the same deadlines?
Yes, the same Banner processes are run that provide the E-W2 and the printed Form W-2s. When the processes are completed, the information will be available in WISE.
What if an employee discovers that they need a printed paper Form W-2?
USNH will continue to retain an imaged copy of all Form W-2s (E-W2 or printed), available through liberty imaging system to the campus payroll office staff. If an employee finds they need a printed copy, it can be accessed via WISE or they can contact the payroll office to request a printed copy.
This new feature provides one more step towards the USNH and campus sustainability goals. In mid-November, USNH payroll will be communicating to employees through the payroll check/direct deposit text box and an FYI through the HR web sites.
Contact USNH payroll at 2-1400, if you have questions or want more information.
