All employees will have access within Employee Self-Service that will allow the ability to update their W-2/W-2c preferences. As an employee, you may consent to receive an electronic W-2/W-2c version of your Annual W-2/W-2c Federal tax form. If you consent to receiving an electronic copy, it will replace the paper copy that will be mailed out. The electronic W-2/W-2c form is a legally file-able copy for your Federal Tax filings.

Once you have consented, you may view, save, or print your W-2/W-2c form. There will be two years of Federal Tax forms available online through Employee Self Service.

Important Reminders:

  • Employees who have more than four Box 14 items will receive a notice to expect two W-2 Forms.  The second form will contain only additional optional reporting information.
  • Employees of Agencies that utilize the MassHR Employee Service Center (ESC) should contact the ESC with W-2/W-2c related questions by calling 1-855-4HR-SPPT (1-855-447-7778) or for TTY users: (617) 248-0546.
  • Employees of Agencies that do not use the ESC should contact their Agency Human Resources or Payroll Department with W-2/W-2c related questions.
