W-2 forms will be emailed to the email address on file for each employee. Remember, unlike opening your direct deposit advice email, your PIN number for your W-2 is your entire social security number, including the dashes. W-2s will be emailed to all current employees during the third week of January 2014. All former employees will receive an email advice. If not, a hard-copy will be sent through the US mail on or before the IRS' required due date – January 31, 2014.
Please make sure that Payroll has your current email address in Banner and that the name on your check/deposit advice is exactly the same as your Social Security card. If not, please let Fanny Martin (email@example.com, ext. 5195) know, no later than Friday, Jan. 17, 2014. Additionally, please check your last payroll check/deposit advice to make sure your home address is current. If you have moved or this isn't your primary address, please update your address in Banner Web (see below) or email Fanny with your current address, so that Payroll can update these changes.

4. W-4 Form
All international students need to fill out a new W-4 each year. This can be done in the Human Resources department. Also, if anyone would like to amend their filing status, exemption allowances, or if your exemption status has changed since you have filed your previous form, please let HR know and they will email you a 2014 W-4 form.
5. Gift Certificates & Christmas Gifts
A gift must be an item of "tangible personal property" to be non-taxable. This DOES NOT include cash, negotiable gift certificates (such as ones that entitle the employee to receive a reduction of in-store account balance or converted to cash), which will be taxable to the employee regardless of the cost or value. If a gift certificate is given, it will be taxable to the employee.
