Tax Reporting

Each year, wages, compensation, and other taxable income must be reported to every individual who has been paid. There are different forms issued for different types of payments.


If you are employed by the university, you will have taxes withheld from your wages, compensation, and other taxable income. At the end of the year, the Payroll office will issue a you W-2 or 1042-S form. The W-2 form is used to report all wages, compensation, and other taxable income, as well as the taxes withheld for employees. The 1042-S form is issued to foreign nationals with tax treaties or special tax percentages withheld on their income. Occasionally, reported wages, compensation, and other taxable income may be reflected incorrectly. When this occurs, the Payroll Office will issue a correction via forms W-2c and/or a corrected form 1042-S
