Question

What do I do if the code in Form W-2, box 14 is not available in the Box 14 statement in Screen W2?

Answer

The instructions for Form W-2, box 14 state that employers may "use this box for any other information that you want to give to your employees." Therefore, unlike box 12, which contains an IRS-defined set of codes, it is very likely Forms W-2 are issued with codes that are not available in the application. First, review the item and determine what, if any, tax ramifications exist. Once you have determined which form/return is affected, use the applicable input screens to report the item on the federal and/or state return.
