Effective immediately, all IIT employees have the opportunity to stop their paper copy of the Form W2 and still continue to view it electronically The electronic W2 form will be available to you on January 31, 2013 on the myIIT portal.
Some of the benefits of receiving an electronic W-2 form are:
- Access from anywhere at any convenient time.
- Access is available at the same easy-to-use, secure Web site at which an employee can access his/her wage information.
- Eliminates the chance that the W-2 will be lost, stolen, delayed, or misplaced during delivery or after receipt by the employee.
- Employee may print multiple copies at their convenience.
To take advantage of this feature, simply log into my IIT and click on the work tab. Go to Employment Details and select Tax Forms. You will then select Electronic W2 consent and after reading the “Electronic W-2 Consent” instructions, check the box for “consent to receive W2 electronically”. Once you submit, the change will take effect.
All employees are currently scheduled to receive a paper Form W2 but once you check this box and click on submit, you will no longer receive your form in the mail.
