Did you auto-import your W-2?

 

It probably doesn't make sense to have an entry in box 20 in the state of Washington, and some other users have reported the auto-import process for the W-2 may have loaded garbage into boxes 18, 19, and 20.

 

If box 19 is blank, then you should blank out boxes 18 and 20.

on the w-2 boxes 15- 20 should be blank because Washington State does not have an income tax.

 

Washington state does not have a personal or corporate income tax. However, people or businesses that engage in business in Washington are subject to business and occupation (B&O) and/or public utility tax. The business’s gross receipts determine the amount of tax they are required to pay. Businesses that make retail sales or provide retail services may be required to collect and submit retail sales tax (see Marketplace Fairness – Leveling the Playing Field).

It depends. Boxes 15-20 involve state income taxes only and does pertain to things like regulatory taxes.
