Former Boston University Employees

If you are no longer an active employee, you will receive your W-2 form via US mail.  You may view and download a copy of the forms by following these instructions:

  • Visit www.mytaxform.com and enter 17160 for the Employer Name/Code
  • If you are a first-time user, follow the steps shown below:

o   In the pop-up box, click on Register Now

o   Follow the registration process

o   After you are prompted to enter your personal email and personal phone number, you will receive a one-time push code if Equifax is able to verify your identity

o   Once you are logged in, you must consent to receiving your 2023 tax forms electronically before you can view them online.

We are encouraging employees to “elect” to receive your W-2 online only for next year. By opting in for online only, you will be able to see your W-2 earlier, file sooner for your refund, contribute to the University’s sustainability efforts and save the University cost of printing and mailing paper copies.

We surveyed our peer institutions, and found that the percentage of employees who opt in for electronic W-2s ranges from 30% to 90% — please opt in, and help us to be at the top end of that range!

Inquiries for duplicate hard copies can be requested through Equifax, and requests will be handled on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will not respond to requests prior to February 7th to allow time for the forms to reach their destinations.

Additional information regarding W-2 forms can be found on our FAQ page and on Understanding your W-2.
