Enroll for 2017 Online W-2

As you are filing your 2016 taxes, now is a perfect time to think about your preferred delivery method for your 2017 W-2 form. All UNK employees can now enroll for online delivery of their 2017 W2 tax statement by logging into Firefly>Employee Self Service>Payment>Enroll for 2017 Tax Year W-2 Online Delivery.

Follow the on screen steps to designate your preferred tax statement delivery method. By opting for online W-2 forms, not only will you save paper but you will also have accessibility to your W-2 form at any time through Firefly. The forms are also available online at least a week before the paper forms are sent out to those users who do not designate their W-2 delivery method or who opt for a paper W-2 form.

You do not need to enroll again if you already opted for the online delivery as your selection carries forward each year. If you do not log into Firefly and make an election, you will receive a paper W-2 form by default.

If you have any questions, please contact Payroll at 865-8426.
