Full Answer

For an employee who receives pay via direct deposit, the employer should send a copy of the pay stub through the mail.

  • Q:

    Why should you keep payroll stubs?

    A:

    Employees should keep their old pay stubs until they receive their W-2 forms from their employer so they can compare the numbers on the documents. Once they confirm that the W2- statement matches the information on the pay stubs, they can shred the stubs. In the event of a tax audit, the Internal Revenue Service compares the W-2 form with the tax return, so the taxpayer does not need the stubs.
