Excess fica withheld

Are you filing a joint return ?   Do you both have a W-2 ?  If so were they marked for the correct person ? 


Review that excess screen again carefully ...

1) IF you entered only one W-2 in the tax program, edit it in the software to make sure you didn't mis-enter the $$ in box 3 or box 4 (don't use a comma for the decimal point).


2)  If you are Married and entered a spouse's W-2 also, make sure you didn't tag her W-2 as yours (or the other way around)


3)  If you entered two W-2 forms for yourself.....explain more.  Are the Employer EINs the really same for both companies ?  Was the same  payroll agent used to issue the two W-2 forms such that both employer EIN's are the same?
