What is EPS2 in box 14 of w-2

Ask your employer ... they can use box 14 for anything they want to put there.  Of course box 14 is informational only in most cases and as such you can simply use the other category in the program.

What is EPS2 in box 14 of w-2

Box 14 — Employers can use this W-2 box to report information such as:

  • State disability insurance taxes withheld
  • Union dues
  • Uniform payments
  • Health insurance premiums deducted
  • Nontaxable income
  • Educational assistance payments
  • A member of the clergy’s parsonage allowance and utilities
  • Charitable contributions made through payroll deduction

Railroad employers use this W-2 box to report:

  • RRTA compensation
  • Tier I tax
  • Tier II tax
  • Medicare tax
  • Additional Medicare tax

Since there’s no standard list of W2 codes for Box 14, employers can list any description they choose. If the code is unclear, contact your employer and ask what the code represents.
