Please compare the amounts reported on the W2 to the following;
Railroad Tier 1 maximum withholding is as follows:
- Maximum taxable compensation during 2020 is $137,700 for tier 1
- Maximum taxable compensation during 2020 is $102,300 for tier 2.
Maximum taxable compensation for social security during 2020 is $137,700.
Please be aware that the Railroad W-2 is designed differently and you may have to look in boxes to see the actual amounts withheld for Tier 1 (social security equivalent portion) and Tier 2 (retirement portion)
Max Tier 1 SS "withholding" is $ 8537.40
But unless you hit this level it's not likely the problem. Could be a simple rounding inconsistency. Try rounding the "withholding" down to an even $ amount even if cents are shown in the withholding amount.
Looks like an error in the TurboTax Deluxe 2020 product. Software says my calculated Tier 1 amount is $8,190.89, but by law it is $8537.40. Should be 6.2% of wages. Product says that I cannot file my taxes until I get a new W-2 with lower Tier 1 contribution.
IF you are using the desktop software...you may need to update your software.
IF the problem still occurs, look at your RR Retirement Compensation amount, also in box 14, in case that is wrong. RR compensation would have to be 137,700 to get the full 8537.40 indicated.
or....call Customer Support...they can get a Diagnostic file from you, and investigate to write up a software correction ticket...if needed, or let you know of some entry error you "might' have made.
