University of Michigan employees can provide consent to receive an electronic version of their Form W-2 for the 2021 tax year as well as for future years.
Those who consented to receive an electronic PDF copy of their 2020 Form W-2 do not need to take further action. Their 2021 Form W-2 will be available for viewing and printing in early January 2022. A reminder email will be sent at that time.
Those who have not previously consented to receive an electronic PDF copy of their Form W-2 can do so now by going to Wolverine Access and searching for and opening the Payroll Tax Forms (W-2, W-4) link. Employees will be prompted to provide consent.
When employees choose the electronic PDF copy, they will:
- Have earlier access to their 2021 Form W-2.
- Avoid having sensitive W-2 information delivered via U.S. mail.
For those employees who choose to receive their Form W-2 in the mail, hard copies will be mailed by Jan. 31, 2022.
To ensure prompt delivery of tax forms by the U.S. Postal Service, an employee’s current home address must be correct in U-M records. They can be updated online by going to Wolverine Access and searching for and opening the Campus Personal Information link, then selecting Addresses.
Updates may also be made using the Address/Personal Data Form.
