Employees who choose to receive their Form W-2 Wage and Tax Statement online can also receive a paper copy of the W-2 by contacting the Payroll Office.

The employee can change his/her option and withdraw consent to online delivery by un-checking the consent check box and clicking the submit button.
The provision of an employee’s Form W-2 Wage and Tax Statement by electronic format will automatically cease upon the employee’s termination of employment with Winthrop University.
