Online W-2 forms available for
employers are required to furnish employees with a W-2 form showing
their compensation and tax withholding amounts for the full calendar
year for use in completing their annual tax returns. Medical University
Hospital Authority (MUHA) and university staff, faculty and student
employees can now choose to receive their W-2 wage and tax statement
online instead of via the postal service.
The delivery of online W-2 statements is IRS approved. In order to
conveniently receive your W-2 form electronically, you must respond to
the consent agreement. Employees who do not respond will wait to
receive their paper W-2 form via U.S. Postal Service.
Benefits to receiving the W-2 form electronically versus through the
- Online delivery provides access to the W-2 form earlier
than the traditional mail process.
- Online delivery eliminates the chance that the W-2 will get
lost, misdirected or delayed during delivery, or misplaced once the
employee receives it.
Any employee, who previously registered to receive a eW-2, does
not need to do so again. Once you register, you will continue to have
access to your W-2 online until you withdraw your consent.
- Signing up for online delivery is easy and secure, and
employees can change their minds and withdraw from online at any time.
MUHA and university employees need to register for the online statement
access by Jan. 22.
To register to receive your W-2 online (for the first time):
You must register by taking the following steps: Login into MyRecords (http://www.musc.edu/hrm/myrecords/

- Click on Signup for Electronic W2
You will receive a confirmation e-mail when you have completed your
online delivery and consent, as well as confirmation of any changes
made to contact information.
- Click save at the bottom of the authorization box
Employees who have registered to receive their W-2 form online will
receive an e-mail notification that their eW-2 form is available
through the MyRecords page, along with instructions for retrieval. You
can then download the eW-2 file to your computer or disk and can refer
to it or print it at any time. The files will be accessible on or
before Jan. 31.
Those who choose to receive their W-2 form online will not receive a
paper copy of it through the U.S. Postal Service.
