Is anyone having a problem entering EXEMPT in box 14 on a 1099R? I am not able to enter this, as it seems to only want to accept a numerical amount

Leave Box 14 blank if you are exempt from state withholding for this payment (or distribution).

 

The preparer of your Form 1099-R entered "EXEMPT" as a courtesy to let you know (and have a record) that you are exempt from state tax withholding. 

 

Since Form 1099-R only uses Box 14 to report the amount of state tax withheld from your pension-retirement plan, the only valid entry for tax calculation or filing purposes would be numeric.  Any other type entry would not be compatible with tax preparation or electronic filing purposes.

Please clarify your question. What state are you filing and why is your distribution exempt?
