Why don't Turbo Tax W-2 boxes match actual numbered boxes on the W-2s for 2019?

Turbo Tax lists Box 2 as Federal tax withheld, but my W-2 has 2a as Taxable amount,.  Federal income tax withheld is om Box 4 on my W-2.  Not Box 2

Why don't Turbo Tax W-2 boxes match actual numbered boxes on the W-2s for 2019?

Because you are trying to enter a Form 1099-R onto a W-2 for wages received from an employer.  You are in the wrong section for entering a 1099-R.

 

To enter, edit or delete a form 1099-R -

  • Click on Federal Taxes (Personal using Home and Business)
  • Click on Wages and Income (Personal Income using Home and Business)
  • Click on I'll choose what I work on (if shown)
  • Scroll down to Retirement Plans and Social Security
  • On IRA, 401(k), Pension Plan Withdrawals (1099-R), click the start or update button

Or enter 1099-r in the Search box located in the upper right of the program screen. Click on Jump to 1099-R

PLEASE disregard my question above.  I am looking at a 1099-R, not a W-2.  (Embarrassed!)
