Divisional HR - Payroll & Benefits - Access Your Electronic W-2 (Off-Campus)

If you are an Extension employee who would like to access tax forms electronically, but do not have direct access to a UW network, please follow the instructions below.


  • UW-Madison employees have the option to choose electronic-only distribution of W-2 and 1095-C forms.
  • Any employee that elects electronic-only distribution will NOT receive a paper copy of the forms(s) via U.S. mail.
  • In order to access the electronic-only W-2 and 1095-C forms, the employee must be logged into a UW network (either connected directly to a UW network or connected remotely using VPN).
  • Many Division of Extension employees do not work on a UW campus or have direct access to a UW network. These employees will need to install and use the WiscVPN client to access these forms electronically.

Accessing Tax Forms Electronically using WiscVPN

  1. Find the instructions for your operating system and download and install the PaloAlto GlobalProtect VPN Client.
    • Note: County-based Extension employees without administrative rights may need to work with their County IT Representatives to install.
    • If you have any questions or need help installing and connecting please contact the DoIT Help Desk.
  2. Connect to the VPN using your UW-Madison NetID and password (included in instructions for installing on your OS).
  3. Follow these instructions to view and print your tax forms.
