WVU Medicine employees are reminded that they can opt out of receiving a paper W-2 form and, instead, receive an electronic copy.

A W-2 is the form that an employer must send to an employee and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) at the end of the year; it reports an employee's annual wages and the amount of taxes withheld from his or her paycheck.

All employees have to do is complete a one-time electronic consent through UltiPro. Once completed, the consent will carry over from year to year.

How to consent:

  1. In the UltiPro portal, go to Myself > Pay > W-2
  2. Select "Change W-2 Consent Form"
  3. Make your selection; choose "I want an electronic copy only"
  4. Select "save"

In January 2018, WVU Medicine Payroll will notify you once your electronic Form W-2 information for tax year 2017 is available for you to view. You can print as many copies as you need to attach to your personal tax return.

If you have any questions, please contact the Payroll office at 304-598-4088 or hospitalpayroll@wvuh.com.
