    · Retired and Terminated Employees - If you are a retired employee or no longer work for the State of Idaho and you have not received your paper W-2 please contact your former agency Human Resources or Payroll/Personnel department for assistance.


      If you did not change your W-2 selection from electronic to paper at the end of your employment your W-2 will only be available to you electronically.

A Reminder on Returned W-2’s

If an employee has a change of address on file with the US Post Office, their W-2 will be automatically forwarded by the post office.

W-2’s marked as ‘Undeliverable’ will be returned to the State Controller’s Office.


    · If a W-2 is returned, the address will be verified with what’s on file with the State Controller’s Office.

    · If the address on the system has been updated, the State Controller’s Office will mail the W-2 to the updated address.

    · If the address on the system has not been updated, the State Controller’s Office will retain the W-2 until the address is corrected on the State Controller’s Office application or the employee may contact 208-334-2394 for assistance.


Note: Depending on the state agency, an employee may update their address by using the Employee Self-Service option or by having their agency HR/Payroll Department update the information.
