W-2 Tax Information

Winston Salem State University (WSSU) is pleased to announce that current employees may elect to receive their W-2 statement online through Banner Self Service in an IRS approved PDF format. This allows you to print and send the on-line form with your tax return.

WSSU is required by the IRS to furnish all employees with a W-2 form for each calendar year. The W-2 form details the employee’s compensation, tax withholdings and required disclosures for the year. In the past, employees have received paper copies of their W-2 form. Complete instructions for W-2 form are available on the IRS website.

Fastest Way to Receive Your W-2

Electronic W-2 is the fastest and most secure way to receive your W-2. By electing this option, an employee’s W-2 tax information will be available for review MUCH FASTER than receiving it by mail. Get started & Do it Today!

If you consent to receive your 2014 W-2 electronically, you must give your consent by January 9, 2015. Once the W-2’s are processed, current employees who gave their consent will be able to view and print the earning statements immediately. An email notification will be sent to employees when W-2’s are available on Banner Self Service. A paper W-2 will not be mailed.

How Do You Benefit From Receiving Your W-2 Electronically?

  • Access to the W-2 statement earlier than traditional paper process
  • No lost or stolen statements or delay with the mail
  • No worrying about not getting your W-2 in time to complete your taxes
  • Will be able to get an approximate picture of your tax liability or refund earlier!
  • Contribute to cost savings (forms, printing and postage expense)
  • Statements will remain online for multiple years.
  • Secure and Easy Access Anytime
  • Ability to print Multiple Copies
  • No frustration! You’re in control!

Disadvantages of Getting Your W-2 by Mail

  • W-2 may be misplaced or lost in the mail
  • Possibility of family members or others receiving and looking at your W-2
  • No ease of access
  • Unsecured

Federal regulations require that employees give their consent to receive the W-2 in an electronic format.  Once consent is given it carries forward each year and does not need to be repeated as long as the employee is still working for the university.
