2016 Form W-2 Preparation

Electronic forms

Employees are encouraged to consent to receive an electronic copy of their 2016 Form W-2 instead of a mailed paper copy.

To consent to receive your form electronically, log in to Banweb (www.banweb.mtu.edu), select the Employees tab, select Tax Forms, and then select Electronic Consent. Click the checkbox under My Choice next Consent to receive W-2 electronically, then select Submit. The deadline to consent to ensure your 2016 W-2 is not mailed is January 8, 2017.

If you consent to receive your W-2 electronically, your 2016 form will be available on Banweb on or before January 31, 2017. A reminder e-mail will be sent when it is available.

By choosing electronic delivery, employees will:

  • Avoid having sensitive information sent via mail.
  • Have earlier access to form.
  • Attain access anywhere there is internet service.
  • Help reduce the use of natural resources associated with large-scale printing and mailing, and reduce postage costs.

Paper forms

For employees who wish to receive a paper W-2, paper forms will be mailed to the W-2 address listed in Banweb.  If a W-2 address does not exist, forms will be sent to the Mailing address in Banweb. Employees should view/update their current address in Banweb no later than January 8, 2017.

To view/update current W-2 and/or Mailing addresses, log in to Banweb, select the Personal Information tab, select Update Address(es) and Phone(s).   Follow directions in Banweb to update an existing address or insert a new address type.

Paper W-2s will be mailed by January 31, 2017 to employees who do not elect to receive their form electronically.
