Do you like to beat the crowds at tax time? Signing up for electronic W-2 forms can put you up to 10 days ahead of the folks who wait to get their W-2 in the mail. And the process is so simple. Between now and January 1, follow these steps.
Then, in late January, as soon as the W-2s are published, you will receive an e-mail notification with instructions on how to go to the tool and print your form. And if your printed form gets lost or goes missing (it has happened to me more than once) you can just go back to the tool and print another.
Happy tax season! If you have big plans for an anticipated refund check, I would love to hear about it in the comments below. Good luck!
