W-2 Electronic Consent

  • The Denton ISD Payroll Department is pleased to announce that employees may elect to receive their W-2 statements online through Employee Access Center (EAC) in an IRS-approved PDF format.

    Denton ISD is required by the IRS to furnish all employees with a form W-2 for each calendar year. The Form W-2 details the employee’s compensation, tax withholdings, and required disclosures for the year. In the past, employees have received paper copies of their W-2.

    An employee who consents to receive the Form W-2 electronically will not receive a paper copy.  If an employee does not consent, Payroll will mail a paper W-2 no later than January 31st to the address on file for the employee. If an employee does not consent to receive the Form W-2 electronically, they will not be able to access any of their Denton ISD W-2s in EAC.

    For additional information or questions, contact us at payroll@dentonisd.org or 940-369-0026.

    Benefits of Receiving Form W-2 Electronically

    • Online delivery provides access to the W-2 statement earlier than the traditional paper process.
    • Online delivery eliminates the chance that the W-2 statement will get lost, misdirected or delayed during delivery or misplaced after the employee receives it.
    • Employees can retrieve their W-2 statements at any time of day and on weekends.
    • Employees can print multiple copies at their convenience.
    • Employees are contributing to cost savings.
    • W-2 statements will remain online for multiple years.

    Federal regulations require that employees give their consent to receive the W-2 in an electronic format. Once consent is given, it carries forward each year and does not need to be repeated. You will be able to update your consent at any time. Please note that the Payroll department will run a consent report on January 8th to capture consent data in order to begin processing W2s.
