Electronic Consent for Electronic W-2

Posted by GISD Business Office on 11/11/2021

Deadline December 31, 2021

Did you know?  *It costs the district an estimated $1,200 to print W-2’s for our employees* 

FACT:  Employees can help the district save money by printing their own W-2 form. 

Employees may choose a method for receiving their 2021 Form W-2 statements by completing the 2021 Electronic W-2 Disclosure Statement through SKYWARD in Employee Access.  

Employees have two options to choose from – either to consent to receive an electronic version or to receive a paper version of their Form W-2.  

The electronic version will be the fastest and most convenient way to receive your 2021 W-2’s.  You will receive an email when the electronic version is ready to print via Employee Access approximately on January 20, 2021.  

The paper version will not be mailed until January 31, 2021.  

The information below is the information that will show up in Employee Access when you log in.  Your selections can be changed later by going to W-2 Information before December 31, 2021.  

The first option is telling us you want to print your own W-2 by going through Employee Access.  The second option is the district mailing you a copy of the W-2.  Either option is the same exact W-2 form.  Both are acceptable by the IRS.  If you print your own, just print a copy to attach to your IRS form when filing your return. 

Interestingly, the electronic version won’t get lost in the mail or thrown away – you can just log on and print another copy.  

Once you make your own selection, the message will disappear.  If you do not make a selection it will be there each time you log in. 

If you would like to view or make selection changes on the W2 prior to December 31st please log into in Employee Access.  Under Payroll Information Click on W2 Information.  On the righthand side of the page click on Options for Receiving My 2021 W2 Electronically.  The Consent form will come up and at the bottom of the page will show current selection.  Changes can be made and click on save.
