I just posted this issue but my post does not show. I completed my taxes today but when I tried to transmit the forms an error came up saying: Line 23 on 540 - State wages from FED return W2 box 16 do not match. Line 23 has a 0 entered and there is no W2 in my Federal return.
There is a possibility that you may have started a W-2 accidentally and never finished it. This can create the error. Here's how to delete a W-2 that was accidentally started:
To delete a form that came in the mail (for example, W-2, 1098, or 1099) it's best to do it from that form's summary screen. Search for the form number (for example, W-2) and select the Jump to link in the search results to get to the summary screen. Once on the summary screen, check very closely for any accidental inputs.
