W-2 Forms Now Available Online
January 18, 2023

Electronic 2022 W-2 Forms (Wage and Tax Statements) are now available for all active employees in the MyUW portal for UW System institutions or for UW-Madison.

View/print your W-2 Form and find tax resources on the Tax Statements tab on the Payroll Help page

Paper copies will also be sent via U.S. mail, postmarked by January 31, 2023, to all employees who did not consent to electronic only distribution.

Access to electronic documents on the MyUW portal ends when you terminate employment. Please remember to print any needed documents prior to departure.

Availability of Other Tax Forms
Some employees will receive additional tax forms from UW System. These additional forms are not applicable to all employees. Examples include the 1095-C Form, the Fellowship Letter and the 1042-S Form. For more information on these forms, visit the Tax Statements tab on the Payroll Help page.

Filing Taxes
Employees should use their W-2 Form, not their final 2022 earnings statement, to file taxes.

The IRS will begin accepting and processing 2022 tax year returns on January, 23, 2023. Employees may want to file their return as soon as all tax forms are received to minimize the chance of a fraudulent return being processed using their Social Security number, or Individual Taxpayer Identification number. More information is available on the IRS website.

If you have questions, contact your Payroll Office.
