W-2 Information for Commonwealth of Massachusetts Employees

When will I get my W-2?

Electronic Forms W-2 for 2022 are now available for employees who go paperless through HR/CMS.


Paper Forms W-2 will be postmarked by January 31, 2023, and paper Forms 1095-C will be postmarked by March 2, 2023 and mailed to the employee’s home address.

Undeliverable paper Forms W-2 are sent to CTR where, per IRS general instructions, they are stored until April 15 of the current tax year. After that date they will be destroyed.

​​What if I worked for more than one department?

Employees with jobs spanning more than one department will receive a single Form W-2 if all earnings were paid against a single Employee ID. Form W-2s are based on Employee ID, not Employee Record Number.

Go Paperless

State employees can suppress their paper Form W-2 and Form 1095-C through HR/CMS Self-Service Time and Attendance.

Going paperless helps employees get their forms faster, and is more secure. In addition, this saves the Commonwealth money and is environmentally friendly. View instructions on
