W-2 forms mailed Jan. 31; also available in C2HR


UPDATE 1/27/17: W-2 forms will be mailed and available in C2HR on Tuesday, Jan. 31.

Original post: W-2 forms for 2016 are scheduled to be mailed on Jan. 27 to current employees and former employees who earned money from Vanderbilt University. This form contains important information about your income, taxes withheld from your paychecks, and some benefits that you will need to complete your 2016 income tax returns. Your form will be sent to your current mailing address in C2HR (typically your home address). You also may access your W-2 by logging into C2HR.

Benefit information included

The Affordable Care Act requires Vanderbilt to report the value of its health care plan on your 2016 W-2 form. You can find this dollar amount in Box 12 under Code DD. It includes the portion you paid and the portion Vanderbilt paid for your health coverage in 2016. The reporting is for informational purposes only, and you are not taxed on this benefit.

Per IRS requirements, 403(b) retirement plan amounts shown in Box 12 include only voluntary contributions to the plan; they do not include mandatory contributions.

Replacement W-2 forms

Current and former employees with active VUnetIDs can print W-2 forms from C2HR. Log in with your VUnetID and password, then click on the link for “Taxes” in the right sidebar. The online W-2 has the same information as the mailed W-2.

Employees without computer access may request a replacement W-2 from Human Resources. To ensure confidentiality, HR does not fax W-2 forms. You can pick up the replacement in person at the Baker Building, 10th floor, by showing a photo ID, or have the replacement mailed to the address printed on the W-2.
