Where would I enter my work 401k contribution when filing taxes?
I ask this because the TurboTax form does not give me the option to enter the amount from box 12 on my W-2. I've went through all sections and was not able to enter the data.
It is already on your W-2. Just enter your W-2 exactly as it appears. The 401k data is in box 12a-12d.
What? If you keyed in your W-2 yourself you certainly did have the chance to enter box 12.
On the W-2 entry screen look at the part for box 12.
You have several "boxes" to start with. You click "select code from list" and then enter the amount.
Did you e-file? Did you click a big orange button that said “Transmit my returns now?” Does your account say “pending?”
