One federal employer ID with two different state IDs or the same state

TurboTax software can not handle a situation where I have W-2 forms for one same federal employer ID but two different empIoyer IDs for the same state.  Due to different positions for the job under the same employer they issue w-2 forms for the same state (PA) with different empolyer ID with different amount for boxes15-17.

The correct entries were made but Turbotax software can not handle this situation since the federal empolyer ID is the same and for the same state it recognize as duplicate form and keep asking to correct the W-2 entry.

 

The only way to bypass is to combine two state w-2's using only one state employer ID and e-file federal tax.  Then, comeback and fill out correct entry to w-2 (with two different entries for  boxes 15-17) on federal and print out the PA state tax file and mail with two state W-2 forms attached.

If I e-file state file, later I get mail from the PA state to mail w-2 forms so I can't avoid mailing the form anyway.

Please modify Turbotax software so it can handle one federal employer ID with two separate state employer IDs for the same state (ie.two different entries for boxes 15-17 can be made for the same state under one federal employer ID).

They issued you two separate W2's? I would ask them to correct the W2 they provided.

 

They can combine this all on to one W2 like this (of course the whole W2 would be filled in). See boxes 1, 15, 16.
