Is code 8 the only code in box 7 and there are not two codes?

If this was a return of an excess deferral for an employer sponsored retirement plan, such as a 401(k),  then a code 8 (with no other code) is not a retirement distribution reported on line 16.  It counts as wages not previously taxed so it is added to line 7 wages on the 1040/1040A form.
