Did you get a W2 or 1099NEC?  If you got a W2 there should be Social Security and Medicare in boxes 3-6.  Box 12 is for something else.  If box 12 doesn't have an amount leave it blank.  Do not enter zero.

box 12 is all blank but it indicates i have withheld taxes, which i never have.  i can not put in zero because it indicates i withheld taxes again.

I'm sorry I'm not following you.  I said DO NOT enter 0 anywhere. If a box has zero in it then leave it blank or empty.  Delete the W2 and re enter it.

What is the exact message you get?  Is it about Excess Social Security Tax withheld?

If you don't have any amounts in box 12a-d then do not pick a code.  Leave them all blank.
