W-2 forms for the calendar year 2016 will be available electronically through the State of Kansas Employee Self Service (ESS) Portal. This option allows employees to securely receive your W-2 electronically and save or print from your own computer.
Employees that consented to receive the W-2 electronically last year will still have that consent in effect. Employees that would like to add electronic consent must log on to the ESS Portal and consent to receive this information electronically. This option will mean that you will not receive a printed W-2 form. You can withdraw this option at any time. Full instructions are found below for assistance in using the ESS portal.
Employees, who do not access the portal or do not consent to receiving the electronic W-2 form, will receive a traditional paper form. The forms are scheduled to be printed and mailed by January 31, 2017. As always, be sure to have your correct mailing address in your personal information in GUS.
