    2012 W-2 Tax Forms Mailed

    W-2 Tax Statements for 2012 have been mailed to each New School employee's home address of record. Please allow five business days for your statement to arrive. When you receive your W-2, check it immediately to see that your name, address, and social security number are correct and that you can read all the information clearly.

    You can see your 2012 W-2 statement online by logging into MyNewSchool, selecting the Employee tab, and opening the W-2 Tax Information link in the Self-Service menu. You can print a copy of your W-2 using the Printable W-2 button at the bottom of the W-2 Tax Information page.
