PU19 Tax Reporter is now available

Tax Reporter (transaction PU19) has been restored to the Tax Reporter role. 

Action Required: Please check any Adjustments (Employee Details) and Errors and Warnings using the Tax Reporter Log Manager.  Please see PU19 Tax Reporter W-2 Annual Processing Procedures for instructions.

Note:  Access to Tax Reporter (transaction PU19) was suspended on Jan. 5 at 8 p.m. to prevent conflicts during statewide W-2 processing.

W-2 Production runs were executed with the following dates:

  • Reporting Period End Date: 12/31/2021
  • Consider Payroll Results up to: 01/01/2022

Manual adjustments:  All manual adjustments completed on Jan. 5 by 8 p.m. are included on the W-2s for 2021 and will be distributed to employees by Consolidated Mail Services. Employee W-2s are also available in MyPortal.

When reviewing log manager results for W-2s and 941s, watch for employee adjustments with the message ”Manual Adjustments Ignored.” If you encounter this message, contact the OFM Help Desk for assistance. Any further manual adjustments may require Forms W-2C/W-3C.

To provide agencies additional access to the PDF files created during 2021 year-end processing, we have extended spool retention until the end of January. Agencies will be able to review and download year-end PDF files until Jan. 31.
