Employers use Box 14 on Form W-2 to provide other information to employees. Generally, the amount in Box 14 is for informational purposes only; however, some employers use Box 14 to report amounts that should be entered elsewhere on your return.

Note. Employers use many different abbreviations and codes in Box 14 to report a variety of information. The program cannot determine your employer's intent based upon the code or abbreviation used. If you have questions regarding the information reported in Box 14, contact the employer that issued the W-2.

If Box 14 of your W-2 reports any of the following, click the applicable link for more information. These items are addressed in separate questions in the Federal Q&A, and if entered in Box 14 of Form W-2 in TaxAct® they will not be transferred to any other section of the return.
