W-2 Forms Available Friday Online

W-2 Forms Available Friday Online

Durham, NC - Jennifer Barrows can start working on her taxes sooner than usual this year, since her Duke W-2 will be available electronically starting Friday.

"I e-file my taxes, and I think most people now file electronically. What do I need paper for?" said Barrows, a staff specialist in the biology department.

Duke employees can access electronic W-2 forms for calendar year 2011 beginning Friday, Jan. 20, through Duke@Work. All employees will receive an email letting them know that W-2 forms are available online. Paper W-2 forms will be distributed beginning Wednesday, Jan. 25.

All staff and faculty will also receive a paper copy of the 2011 form, but they will have the option to opt out and only receive an electronic copy later in calendar year 2012. The transition was announced last month in Duke Today. 

W-2 earnings information (beginning with the 2011 tax year) will be available under the "MyPay" tab, along with online pay statements and state and federal tax withholding elections.

For more information about Duke@Work or electronic W-2s, visit Duke@Work or call the Corporate Payroll Services team at (919) 684-2642 with questions.
