Here are some common questions employers and their employees have about accessing W-2s online in ViewMyPaycheck.

  1. Employers prepare employee W-2s in QuickBooks and then upload the W-2 info to Intuit's servers.
  2. Employees get a notification email from the employer that lets them sign up and/or sign in to ViewMyPaycheck — the website that enables online access to W-2s.
  3. Employees who sign in to ViewMyPaycheck to access their W-2 online will see something like this:

    In ViewMyPaycheck, employees can:

    • See a summary of W-2 info
    • See a copy of their official W-2
    • Print their official W-2
    • Start their personal tax return in Intuit TurboTax

Absolutely! Your security is very important to us.

Intuit uses industry-standard methods to send the W-2 info electronically to Intuit's firewall-protected servers.

Also, to view your W-2 online, you must sign in with a unique user ID and password and provide some additional info to verify who you are.

Yes. You must use one of the following browsers to view your W-2 online in ViewMyPaycheck.

Note: Each link opens browser in a separate window or tab.

Your employer will let you know by email when you can access your W-2s online.

Then you just need to provide some information that verifies who you are and create a secure account that only you can access. You only need to do this once. As soon as you do, you can view your own W-2 anytime you want — 24/7.

Just follow these steps:

  1. Click the link in the notification email from your employer:
  2. Click Sign Up. When prompted, answer the security questions.
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions to create an Intuit account. Then sign in.
    Note: If you already have an Intuit account, use that one to sign in.
  4. View and, if you'd like, print your W-2.

That's it!

If you don't see the W-2 tab after you sign in to ViewMyPaycheck, most likely your employer hasn't uploaded your W-2s yet. Please contact your employer to confirm if W-2s have been uploaded.

Are you an employer? If you've already uploaded W-2s, and it's between late December through January, it can take 24-48 hours for employees to see them in ViewMyPaycheck. This is due to a high volume of customer uploads at this time of year.

If it has been longer than 48 hours there might be a system issue. Here's some more info:

  • Do other employees have the same problem? If yes, there was most likely an issue with the W-2 upload. Try again — upload your W-2s one more time and wait 48 hours for them to appear. If the W-2s are still not visible, contact ViewMyPaycheck Support for additional help.
  • Is the issue only happening for a single employee? If yes, it is most likely a data problem for that individual employee. Contact ViewMyPaycheck Support for additional help.
