Essential tax forms mailed to employees in coming months

All 2020 W-2s will be sent to the mailing address employees have on file in the employee portal by Jan. 31 and the 1095-C will be mailed by March 2 to employees eligible for health benefits last year. Both forms will be available in the portal shortly after they are released.

Note: If an employee didn’t receive their W-2 in the mail, please direct them to the Tax Forms webpage on the Employee Services website to see what to do. This page will be published prior to the release of W-2s.

Access the W-2 electronically

  • Log into the employee portal.
  • Select the CU Resources tab (CU System employees can skip this step.)
  • Open the CU Resources Home dropwdown menu at the top, center of the page and select My Info and Pay.
  • Choose the W-2 tile. Employees will be prompted to verify their identity before they can access this information.

Accessing in the ADP Portal

What if employees see two W-2s in their portal?

Employees with two W-2s have earnings as a CU and CUR employee. Both W-2s must be submitted when filing your 2020 tax return.

About Form 1095-C

Form 1095-C is sent annually, providing employees with information regarding employer-provided insurance coverage. It specifies the months of health care coverage for the employee and their eligible dependents.

When completing their federal tax return, employees will need to indicate whether they had qualifying health coverage for all of 2020 or whether they qualified for a health coverage exemption. Per the IRS, employees are not required to submit this form with their 2020 tax filing. However, they should keep this form with tax records.

If questions arise, employees should consult a qualified tax advisor.

Accessing Form 1095-C electronically

  • Log into the employee portal.
  • Open the CU Resources Home dropdown menu at the top,center of the page.
  • Click the Benefits and Wellness tile.
  • Choose the Benefits Notices tile and click the View Form 1095-C tile.

International employees

Nonresident alien taxpayers whose wages are eligible for a tax treaty exemption, or who are recipients of non-qualified scholarship, will be issued a 1042-S form’. The IRS requires 1042-S forms to be mailed no later than the third week of February but we strive to mail forms well in advance of that deadline.

Individuals with tax treaty exempt income or with taxable scholarship should wait to receive the 1042-S form before filing personal income tax returns. In some cases, non-resident employees may receive Form W-2 as well, if receiving taxable wages. If employees meet this criteria but have not received their form by the third week of February, please ensure they complete a 1042-S Reissue Request Form and submit it to Employee Services.
