community property tax withholding adjustments - include social security and medicare taxes?

I'm in a registered domestic partnership in California and I'm following these steps: https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/family/help/how-do-i-prepare-our-rdp-return-if-we-live-in-californ....

Question: On the "Tax Withholding Adjustments" screen in the TurboTax desktop software, there is a box for "Federal Amount".  In addition to the federal income tax (Box 2 from W2), should I also add in this box ("Federal Amount") the allocated amounts withheld via Social Security and Medicare taxes?

 

I wasn't sure whether to purely fill in this "Federal Amount" box with only federal income tax.  Or if I should also be including Social Security tax and Medicare tax.

No, just the amount in box 2.  Don't worry about the medicare and social security amounts.
