Overflow W-2 form with additional box 12 item

I have an overflow W-2 form because box 12 has 5 items and the limit on the form is 4 (the overflow form is blank except for the box 12 item). Where do I enter the fifth box 12 item? Do I need to create a second W-2 with just the box 12 item?

If one of them is a code C you can ignore that one.

I am using a MAC and cannot add an extra row to box 12 to add the code from the overflow W2. My codes are C, AA, D, W and DD. Should I ignore code C like mentioned above?

I have 7 different codes to put in box 12.  Just ignoring one of the codes will not help me.  Do you have another suggestion?

First you should be able to enter all the codes if you just add more lines ... still can't think why a MAC would be different .... but the codes that are a must ...A, B, M, N ... other that can effect the return are D, E, F, G, S, H, L, P, W,  AA, BB, DD ... the rest don't mean anything on a return.

Yep, also on a Mac, same problem. Going to call TT support I guess.

Hi. I also have a MAC and just realized how to add a line to Box 12.  Put your cursor within the four lines of Box 12 and scroll down (i.e., pull the four lines already populated upwards.  You'll see a new blank entry line appear.

I actually added two additional lines without issue.

I THINK I've successfully added a screen shot of this.

That did it. You're a genius.
