Confirm the amount you have entered for your W-2 wages is not being coded to New York.

 

  1. Go to the Federal section of the return
  2. Select "Income & Expenses"
  3. Select "Job (W-2)" and edit
  4. Review the entries in Boxes 14 through 18 to determine if your W-2 matches the input.  If there are no amounts in your W-2 for NY, but you see entries in these sections for NY, select the little trash can icon to the right of these sections to delete the input for NY.

New York wages

 

 

After performing the steps above, go into the state section of the program and verify your information entered in the New York state section. 

 

There will be questions in the interview which ask "Did you have any New York State Wages?" 

 

Review your answers here as well as throughout the state interview to determine if an answer needs to be adjusted accordingly.

Thanks. I'm sure it's something I did. However, I received no W-2 for NY. My only W-2 was for NJ and coded that way. My NY income was reported on a 1099-MISC as Nonemployee compensation (Box 7). I don't recall being asked about NY wage compensation but I suspect that's what fouled me up. Thanks again.
