For All College Employees and Student Employees

Posted on January 24, 2022 | Filed under General News

You can now elect to consent to receive your W-2 forms (for employees and students) and/or your 1095 forms (for employees only) by electronic delivery.

Once the College releases your tax information, you can access the forms immediately and if forms are lost during the tax season, they can easily be reprinted using the same process. If interested, log into Employee Self-Service. Click on the “Tax Information” tile. Click the button that says to “receive in electronic format” and hit “save”. Please note and don’t forget: Employees ONLY will need to do this process twice — once for their W-2s and once for their 1095s. As mentioned, once the College releases tax information (before the end of January for W-2s and shortly thereafter for 1095s), you can log into Employee Self-Service, access the “Tax Information” tile and print out your tax forms.
