2014 Direct Mailing of Form W-2 Wage & Tax Statement

  • The Form W-2 reflects wages paid by warrants/direct deposit payments that were issued during the tax year 2014, regardless of the pay period in which the wages were earned.
  • The Form W-2 includes warrants/payments issue dated 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 or she worked during the tax year. (Only one W-2 is issued by the State Controller’s Office for each “State” employee).
  • All W-2 forms will be mailed by no later than January 31st, directly from the State Controller’s Office (SCO) in Sacramento, to the employee’s mailing address on file with the Payroll Office, as of December 19, 2014 or per the USPS database if forwarding addresses exist, as of the November pay period of the calendar year 2014. The SCO has communicated that it will begin mailing W-2’s around January 23, 2015.
  • Employees, who do not receive their W-2’s within a couple of weeks from when the SCO mailed them, 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  by December 19, 2014 and the written request for the duplicate is received by Payroll prior to February 17, 2015. (please use form indicated below to request a duplicate W-2)
  • Employees who do not receive their W-2’s by February 17, 2015, 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. Normally, during tax time, the SCO estimates a 2 – 3 week turn-around period. The sooner the request is mailed to the SCO’s W-2 Unit, the quicker you will receive your duplicate. Payroll cannot request duplicate W-2’s on behalf of employees after March 1, 2015.
  • Prior to requesting a duplicate W-2, please contact your local Post Office to see if your W-2 may be there.
