2008 Electronic W-2 Forms

Members of the Johns Hopkins community can register to receive 2008 W-2 forms electronically. There are several advantages to receiving the forms this way. The W-2 will be available sooner than a printed copy; when the W-2 is available, a notification will be sent to the e-mail address you provide at the time you register; the W-2 can be printed from the Web and/or saved as a PDF file on a home computer; the form can be imported directly into tax software such as TurboTax; and a copy of the W-2 can be reprinted during the year, free of charge. No action is required if you registered last year to receive your W-2 electronically.

To register (or if your e-mail address has changed since last year, or to check the e-mail address used last year), go to:
