As you mentioned in your question, Form W-2 Box 13 has 3 Different "Check Boxes". Below is an explanation of each:
- Statutory Employee: If this box is checked, you are treated as Self-Employed for tax purposes and must report your income and expenses on Schedule C. This status usually applies to Employees working on Commission like Real Estate Agents, Life Insurance Salespersons, and Direct Sellers.
- Retirement Plan: If this box is checked, it means you had access to a Retirement Plan through your Employer during the year such as a 401(k). A check in this box may limit your ability to get other tax incentives for retirements plans like deductible IRA Contributions.
- Third Party Sick Pay: If this box is checked, you received payments for sick-pay from a company other than your employer, usually an insurance company. Generally, these payments are not included as Wages in Box 1 of your Form W2.
Here is how you edit Box 13 (Third Party Sick Pay) of your W-2.
Type 'Form W-2' into the search box
Select 'Go to W-2'
Then select 'Edit', next to the W-2 you need to edit.
Uncheck the box for Third Party Sick Pay

So if these wages aren’t included in box 1. Where would I input wages from sick pay. My husband had one week of STD pay. We don’t know if and where we need to put this information. We didn’t receive a tax form. Just a letter from his insurance letting us know how that week of pay was broken down towards taxes and stuff.
The deadline to mail W-2 forms is January 31. Wait until the end of next week and see if you get a W-2 for the sick leave. If you don't receive a W-2, then contact the sick leave insurance company and verify that there will be no W-2. If there is no W-2 for the sick leave, then you just need to save the letter from the insurance company for your records.
