Johns Hopkins is encouraging all employees to plan ahead for the tax season and consider receiving their W-2 forms electronically. The forms will be available to access online in mid-January.
Those who opted to receive an electronic form last year will automatically receive one this year. Those who agreed in or before 2016, when the university was using an outside vendor, will have to take steps to indicate their preference for an electronic form, as will those choosing it for the first time.
To receive your 2018 W-2 electronically, you must log into the Employee Self-Service website by Dec. 31 to indicate your consent.
If you do not complete the consent for electronic delivery by Dec. 31, your W-2 will be mailed to the permanent address in your ESS record by Jan. 31, 2019. If that is the option you prefer, it is still important that you go to the ESS page to make sure your permanent address is up-to-date.
