Pitt Payroll has answers on W-2s as tax day approaches

April 15 is fast approaching and many of us will be sitting down to hash out our tax returns over the next few weeks.

If you’ve misplaced your W-2 or are just confused about some of the items on it, the Pitt payroll department has you covered.

Under the Pay & Taxes tab on the department’s website, you can find a breakdown of all the taxes and fees taken out of your paycheck and an explanation of Boxes 1-20 on the W-2.

To request a duplicate W-2, click here. If your address has changed, make sure it’s up to date in the Prism system before requesting the duplicate. It takes two to three days for the request to be processed, so don’t wait until April 14 to figure out you need a new W-2.
