Record Number of Employees Access W-2s Online

February 23, 2012

Of the 8,837 Mason faculty and staff members who accessed their W-2 form online, professor Vera Goodacre was the winner in Human Resources and Payroll’s prize drawing.

Suzanne Tinsman, payroll and HRIS director, reports that nearly 70 percent of employees accessed their W-2s online this year, up from about 66 percent last year. HR estimates that the university saved more than $6,000 in labor, printing and postage costs by not having to print and mail W-2s. In addition, accessing the form online lets employees file their tax returns more quickly.
