The Form W-2: Wage and Tax Statement reports taxable earnings paid to employees between January 1 and December 31 of each calendar year. Taxable earnings are gross payments minus tax deferrals such as pension plans, pre-tax parking and employee-paid health. Tax documents for wages earned in 2021 will be available online or mailed by Jan. 31, 2022.
How to Access Your W-2 Statement Online
Employees will download their W-2 Statements from UCPath Online. You will be able to download your W-2 by going to the following page:
- Dashboard Navigation: Income and Taxes > View Online W-2/W-2C
- Menu Navigation: Employee Actions > Income and Taxes > View Online W-2/W-2C
Important Security Reminder
The University of California does not send W-2 statements by email or text. If you receive an email or text with an attachment for viewing a W-2, it is a phishing scam designed to gain your private information. Do not open attachments that claim to provide access to your W-2 and use caution when clicking any links. If in doubt, go to UCPath online using a safe/known link and access your electronic W-2 directly.
