Lafayette offers the option of receiving all future W-2 statements electronically instead of paper ones if you give consent. This does allow you to print and send the online form with your tax return if needed. If you previously gave your consent, you don’t need to do so again.

Benefits of electronic W-2

  • Online delivery provides access to the W-2 statement earlier than the traditional paper process.
  • Eliminates the chance that a W-2 will get lost, stolen, delayed or misplaced.
  • Access to the W-2 Wage & Tax Statement through Banner Self-Service from anywhere you have a computer.

Give consent

  • Log in to Banner Self-Service.
  • Click on the Employee
  • Click on Taxes.
  • Click on Electronic Regulatory Consent.
  • Click the Consent to receive W-2 electronically
  • Click Submit.

Employees who gave their consent will be able to view and print their 2020 W-2 by mid-January 2021. They’ll get an email when W-2s are available on Banner Self-Service.

Disclosure notice

  1. If an employee does not consent to receive an electronic version of the W-2 form, he or she will receive a paper version.
  2. Your consent is effective for W-2s issued for the current calendar year and all future periods until (a) you withdraw your consent, (b) you are no longer employed by Lafayette College or, if you are a student, (c) you have graduated or otherwise have withdrawn from Lafayette.
  3. After giving consent, an employee may still request a paper W-2 by contacting the Payroll Department in writing. This may be done via email or U.S. mail to  Lafayette College Controller’s Office, 030 Marquis Hall, Easton, PA 18042.  The request for a paper W-2 does not terminate consent.
  4. An employee may withdraw his or her consent by entering Banner Self-Service, un-checking the electronic consent box, and submitting the change. The withdrawal of consent does not apply to a W-2 that was furnished electronically before the withdrawal of consent.
  5. If you leave Lafayette (terminate employment, graduate or withdraw as a student), you will no longer have access to electronic W-2s. If you consent to electronic-only delivery of your W-2 but leave the College before it is available, you will receive a paper copy via U.S. mail.
  6. Any employee must immediately update any contact information by contacting Human Resources and filling out the appropriate paperwork.
  7. In order to access, print, and retain your W-2 electronically, you need to use Aobe Acrobat Reader.
  8. Withdrawal of consent will be effective on the date received by the Payroll Department. If consent is withdrawn, it will only be effective for W-2s not yet issued.
