W-2 Forms

Employers such as Duke must complete a Form W-2 for each employee to whom they pay a salary, wage, or other compensation as part of the employment relationship. Employers must deliver the Form W-2 to employees on or before January 31 of the calendar year.

An employee is required to complete a Tax Document Request Form to request a replacement of a lost or misplaced W-2 form.

Replacement W-2 forms will be mailed only to terminated employees. Active employees may pick up their W-2 forms.

As a reminder, it is Duke University's policy not to release any confidential information, which includes employee earnings and tax information, by phone, fax or email. The W-2 forms cannot be emailed or faxed and cannot be sent to a third party such as the employee’s accountant.
