It's hard to find the PPN # either but you can use the Employer State ID Number instead. "The employers New Jersey Taxpayer Identification Number or approved private plan number must also be shown." You can find the State ID # in box 15 of your NJ W-2.
These abbreviations are common on New Jersey W-2s in box 14:
- The mandatory contributions for New Jersey Unemployment Insurance/Workforce Development/Supplemental Workforce Funds (UI/WF/SWF),
- Disability Insurance (DI) and
- Family Leave Insurance (FLI)
See the FAQ below for instructions on entering box 14 from your W-2.
Employers can put just about anything in box 14; it's a catch-all for items that don't have their own dedicated box on the W-2.
In TurboTax, enter the description from your W-2's box 14 on the first field in the row. Enter the dollar amount and select the correct tax category that goes with that description.
If none of the categories apply, scroll to the bottom of the list and choose Other–not on above list. Don’t worry. We'll figure out if it impacts your return or not. If we need more information, we'll ask you later in the interview.
On the other hand, if box 14 is blank, just skip over it. Don't enter a 0 for any blank boxes.
