Tax and Payroll Deadlines for the 2024 New Year

With the start of the new calendar year, all employees should review these important deadlines related to pay, taxes, and benefits and take action as needed.

January 12, 2024: Tax information deadline

UCPath will begin to process W-2s in late January. To ensure the information on your W-2 is complete, accurate, and reaches you, take the following steps by January 12, 2024:

  • Opt-in for electronic W-2. The secure and convenient way to receive your W-2. To sign up, log in to UCPath online, then select Employee Actions > Income and Taxes > Enroll to Receive Online W-2.
  • Verify personal email and home address in UCPath online. Both your email and home address must be accurate regardless of whether you receive an electronic or paper W-2.
  • Verify dependents. To review or update your dependent information, log in to UCPath (opens in new window), and select Employee Actions > Health and Welfare > Dependent Coverage.
  • International workers: Verify 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 match exactly in UCPath online and the GLACIER tax database. You may also opt to have an electronic 1042-S through GLACIER. Learn more about Form 1042-S (opens in new window).

February 15, 2024: Deadline to claim exemption from withholding

  • If you claim exemption from tax withholding you are required by the IRS to complete a new W-4 each year. If you claim exemption from withholding in 2024, make this choice in UCPath before February 15.
