2015 Direct Mailing of Form W-2 Wage & Tax Statement
- The Form W-2 Wage & Tax Statement reflects all wages issued/paid during the 2015 tax year regardless of the pay period in which the wages were earned.
- The Form W-2 includes warrants/payments issued January 1st through December 31st of each calendar year. It contains all wages and tax information for an employee regardless of the number of State agencies/campuses for which he/she worked during the tax year. Only one Form W-2 is issued by the State Controller’s Office for each “State” employee.
- The State Controller’s Office (SCO) in Sacramento will print and mail employee’s 2015 W-2 Forms by January 22, 2016, to the employee’s address on file with the Payroll Office as of December 12, 2015.
- Employees who do not receive their W-2’s within a couple of weeks after the SCO issue date may request that Payroll order a duplicate W-2 on their behalf (fee charged to campus). This is provided their address is correct in the Payroll system and the written request for the duplicate is received by Payroll prior to February 16, 2016. (Please use form indicated below to request a duplicate W-2)
- Employees who do not receive their W-2’s by February 16, 2016 and did not request that Payroll order duplicate W-2’s on their behalf, will be required to request duplicate W-2 forms directly from the State Controller’s Office W-2 Unit at a cost of $8.50. The SCO estimates approximately a 2 to 3 week turn-around period during the tax period. Payroll cannot request duplicate W-2’s on behalf of employees after February 29, 2016.
