2018 Direct Mailing of W-2 Form, Wage & Tax Statement

  • The W-2 Wage & Tax Statement form reflects all wages issued and taxes paid during the 2018 tax year, (January 1st – December 31st), regardless of when the wages were earned.
  • Each “state” employee will receive one W-2 form from the California State Controller’s Office regardless of the number of California state agencies or campuses an employee may have worked at during the tax year.  
  • The W-2 forms are printed and mailed out mid-January each year directly from the State Controller’s Office to the employee’s home address that is on file with their Payroll Office as of December 7th of the corresponding tax year.
  • Employees who do not receive their W-2 form on or before January 31st may request a duplicate W-2 free of charge from the Payroll Office, provided their address is correct in the payroll system and a written request is received by February 22, 2019. Please use the form below to request a duplicate W-2 form.
