Go Green by Opting to Receive Your W-2 ElectronicallyPosted Dec. 13, 2010
Kent State will again make it possible for all employees, including student workers, to elect to only receive the W-2 Wage and Tax Statement electronically. This has several advantages:
1. Employees will be able to access the W-2 earlier, because they will not have to wait for it to be delivered in the mail;
2. Employee's sensitive personal information will not be sent through the mail;
3. Natural resources are saved by not printing the forms;
4. Cost savings by not printing and mailing the forms.
Employees who wish to take advantage of this opportunityare required by federal regulations to give their consent. This can be done online any time between now and Jan. 10, 2011. To sign up, log in to FlashLine, go to the My HR tab and look for the Employment Details box. Once there, click on the link for Tax Forms. From the Tax Forms link, select Electronic W-2 Consent, check the box indicating consent and then click Submit.
If there is a check mark in the box, you have previously given consent and do not need to consent again.
Anyone who does not elect to receive an electronic version will receive a printed W-2. These will be delivered either via U.S. or campus mail no later than Jan. 31.
Questions should be directed to the payroll department at 330-672-8640 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
