Note to Employees:  The University of North Carolina at Charlotte is required by the IRS to furnish all employees with a Form W-2 for each calendar year to be used in completing the employee’s annual tax returns. Form W-2 details the employee’s compensation and tax withholding amounts for the year. Some employees receive a paper copy of their Form W-2. 

UNC Charlotte employees have the option of receiving their Form W-2 through My Charlotte. This method is an alternative to receiving a paper copy via U.S. Mail.
