Got questions about your W-2? Book a session today

[This article provided by VUMC Human Resources]

By now you should have already received your W-2 form in the mail or downloaded it from C2HR website. As a result, you may have some questions about this important tax form, which contains information about your income, taxes withheld from your paychecks and some benefits that you will need to complete your 2016 income tax returns. Human Resources has scheduled a series one-on-one sessions that you can enroll in to meet with one of team members to assist you with any questions you may have with your W-2.

Book a session today if you have specific questions you need answered. To enroll, go to the Learning Exchange, log in with your VUnetID and ePassword, and then search for “W2” in the Find a Course search box. You can also click here to go directly to the course.
