Go Paperless to Receive 2023 Tax Forms Electronically

The deadlines to sign up for electronic tax forms are before Jan. 1, 2024, to receive your 2023 1095-C electronically and before Jan. 12, 2024, to receive your 2023 W-2 statement electronically.

Now is a great time to update your settings in UCPath online to receive your 1095-C and W-2 tax forms electronically. And, if you’re still getting your paycheck in the mail, you can sign up for direct deposit as well.

Going paperless provides a more sustainable way to maintain secure digital access to your tax information, and signing up for direct deposit may qualify you for incentives at your bank.

Other Ways to Prepare for Tax Season

  • Verify your personal email and home address in UCPath online. Even if you elect to receive an electronic W-2, it’s important to keep your personal information up to date. Log into UCPath online and navigate to Employee Actions > Personal Information > Personal Information Summary (opens in new window).
  • Verify your dependents. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires UC to make reasonable efforts to obtain Social Security numbers for employees, their spouses/domestic partners, and dependents. To review or update your information, log into UCPath online, then select Employee Actions > Health and Welfare > Dependent Coverage (opens in new window).
  • International workers: Verify your GLACIER account information. International employees may receive a W-2 or 1042-S (Foreign Person's U.S. Source Income Subject to Withholding). To ensure your tax information is sent correctly, verify that your personal email and home addresses in UCPath online and the GLACIER tax database match exactly. You may also opt to access an electronic 1042-S through GLACIER. Learn more about Form 1042-S (opens in new window).
