Message From Boston University Payroll Office:

We are pleased to announce that, if you elected to receive your W2 online, you are now able to view and download your 2023 W2 tax forms.  To do so please go to the Boston University Payroll website and follow the instructions. For those of you who selected paper, they will be mailed out and you should receive them by January 31st.

Active Employees:

You can access their W-2 forms by logging into Equifax.

Your 2022 W2 can be found alongside your 2023 W2 by logging in through the BU Payroll website described above.

W2 forms for 2020 and 2021 will continue to be available through Employee Self-Service in the BUworks Central Portal.

If you elect to receive your 2023 tax forms online, the election will be saved for future years, and you will no longer be mailed a paper copy of your W2.
