W-2 Information

UC Davis employees are encouraged to receive their W-2 tax form electronically.

This is the fastest way to access your W-2 information from 2005 through last year. W-2 forms are provided through the At Your Service Online (AYSO) Web site.

Retirees and Tax Forms

Retirees receive their tax forms from UC Office of the President, not the local campus. Requests for assistance with tax forms should be directed to the Retirement Administration Service Center (RASC) at 1-800-888-8267 or by online form at

Electronic W-2 from AYSO

The W-2 at AYSO will be an original W-2, not a duplicate copy, and will require you sign into your account with a unique username and password previously set up in the system.

  • Contact the PPS Help Desk at for a temporary password (Please DO NOT include any SSN information in your email)
  • Access UCNet site and on the right side of the page, under "Sign in to Your Accounts", select the AYS Online button
  • Use the New to UC and have a temporary password? link and follow the instructions
  • Enter the requested information to establish a new password
  • If you have previously set up a username it will be provided as a reminder for future use
  • You may be prompted to agree to the electronic authorization and to choose four questions that will be used to verify your identity for future password resets
  • Under the Income & Taxes heading, choose the W-2 link

You can also contact the PPS Help Desk at (530) 752-7750 or by email at for assistance with your account.

Paper W-2 Forms

If you are no longer an employee of UC Davis, or requested your W-2 in paper form and have moved, your W-2 is available through At Your Service Online (AYSO), see the instructions above.

If you have no computer access or need a W-2 prior to 2005, your form may be available for pick up in person at the Payroll Division office.

Please complete the help request form to be contacted regarding availability and the best method of access to your W-2. Do not include your SSN as part of your request, if this information is needed it will be requested.
