Tallahassee, FL - Florida CFO Alex Sink today (11-17) asked state employees to sign up to receive their W-2 forms electronically, which could save Florida taxpayers $75,000 annually if all state employees participated. CFO Sink also highlighted conveniences for employees with electronic W-2s, including earlier access to the form and eliminating the risk of the form being lost or misplaced.

“I am always looking for ways to save money and improve efficiency for the state, and having our employees receive their W-2 forms electronically is a great example of how we can be more cost effective,” said CFO Sink. “I encourage all state employees to take advantage of this quick and easy option, which saves taxpayers thousands of dollars and also allows employees the convenience of online access to this important document.”

CFO Sink sent an email to all agency heads today to share with their state employees urging them to take advantage of this convenient option by visiting the Employee Information Center website to opt in. CFO Sink’s Department of Financial Services will notify participating employees via email when electronic 2010 W-2 forms are available in early January 2011 and employees can also view and print payroll earnings statements online. Over 28,000 state employees have already registered to receive their W-2 forms electronically.

CFO Sink has saved the state millions of dollars by running state government more efficiently and cost effectively. CFO Sink’s Department of Financial Services realized over $1 million in savings for Florida’s taxpayers through numerous electronic and paperless efforts and cut print volume in half since 2007.

    I have already changed mine over so I can just print it off line. This would be a good thing if everyone would do it, also I don't see where there would be a problem on MAKING EVERYONE sign-up. Stop and think about it you could print it as of Jan. 1st which would be a lot faster than waiting until February sometime for your boss to give it to you.

    Sink is quoted as saying she is always looking for ways to cut costs? Then why was she and her staff such a frequent user of the state plane? I think if a flight was necessary that there would be plenty out of the TLH airport and how about using some of the modern technology and utilizing video meetings? Private industry is saving boatloads of money by doing meetings in this manner. Why can't she do this with her staff? No need for the fuel, pilot, hotel expenses. Pretty easy right?

    How hard would it be to make this mandatory, like direct deposit?
