Form W-2 - Box 14 Information

Box 14 of Form W-2 Wage and Tax Statement allows your employer to enter a variety of information.  Employers might use abbreviations and codes in Box 14, and you may need to ask your employer to interpret those abbreviations or codes.  Reporting Box 14 information in your W-2 in TaxAct is only for your benefit and tax records.  The information you enter for Box 14 will not automatically flow to any other forms, so if you have Box 14 information that needs to be reported on other parts of your return, you will need to enter the information in the appropriate section of the Federal Q&A.

Fill out Form W-2 in your TaxAct return, and enter your Box 14 - Description, Amount, and other information (if you need help, go to our Form W-2 - Entering in the TaxAct Program FAQ):
