How do I get my W-2 to file my taxes?

Information on receiving your W-2 can be found here

Should I file my taxes?

If you owe taxes to the state or federal government, you are required by law to file your taxes. If you have paid taxes over the course of the calendar year and are owed a refund, you can receive that refund by filing your taxes. Taxes are due for filing by April 15th for the previous year’s work. For more information, refer to the Student Control Panel's topic “Taxation and Filing your Taxes.”

What taxes do I have to pay?

Students who are enrolled at least half time are exempt from OASDI & Medicare taxes during the Academic Year but are required to pay them during the Summer term if they work. These are deducted automatically from your paycheck. Your federal and state tax liability is less proscriptive, dependent on several factors and determined based on your completion of the federal and state withholding form (W-4's). Information on the federal W-4 can be found here.  Connecticut W-4 information can be found here. For further assistance in completing or updating your tax withholding elections in Workday, please contact Employee Services or 203-432-5552.  For specific questions on your tax status, please consult a tax advisor.

What if my Social Security Number is incorrect on my W2?

Currently enrolled students can update their Social Security Number via the link on the Student Control Panel.  It will take one business day before Workday is updated with the information.  If you are no longer enrolled or need to have your tax document reprinted after updating your SSN, you will need to contact Employee Services and they will assist you.
