Dear University Employee,
Your tax year 2017 W-2 form is now available for viewing via the SelfService menu on the ConnectCarolina home page. Remember that 2-Step Verification is required for online W-2 access (see 2-Step instructions below). In late January 2018, all employees will also receive a printed W-2 for tax year 2017.
Accessing online W-2s offers the following advantages
- Accessing your W-2 form online allows you to print and use it sooner than the paper version issued in late January by Payroll Services.
- Active employees can access and print their W-2s at any time, 24 hours a day. The functionality can be especially useful for employees who need to access their W-2 information quickly when applying for personal loans.
- The electronic W-2 is just as official as the paper version you normally receive from Payroll Services – no special paper is needed.
- Former employees will continue to receive paper W-2s via U.S. Mail and also have the option of accessing W-2s via a guest account in ConnectCarolina. Instructions can be found at help.unc.edu/help/onyens-guest-ids/.
Instructions for accessing your W-2 online using 2-Step
