Go Paperless with Your 2018 W-2 and 1095c Tax Forms

By Jan. 31, 2019, the 2018 W-2 and 1095c forms will be available through the HR/Payroll Connection Employee Portal for all coworkers who provide consent to receive their tax forms “online only.”  The actual availability date will be communicated by mid-January.

If you previously consented, you don’t have to consent again. If you did not consent in the past but would like to consent now, follow the directions below to provide consent for both the W-2 and 1095c forms. Be sure to provide your consent by 8pm on Jan. 7, 2019 (no exceptions).

If you consent to online access, you won’t receive paper tax forms in the mail but will be able to print your online W-2 and 1095c forms if you like.

We encourage all employees to provide online consent. Some of the benefits of going paperless are:

  • Ensuring timely retrieval of 2018 tax forms
  • Filing taxes earlier (and perhaps receiving refunds sooner)
  • Reducing the chances of a lost or misplaced document
  • Helping conserve our natural resources
  • Saving postage expense for CHI
