Are you military?  Do you have dependents?  Do you have a code Q in box 12?

It depends.  I recommend inputting the W2, because one of two things will happen if there is no taxable income for your Federal return (which a zero in box 1 suggests that there is none).  Either the W2 will be "filtered out" so to speak, or the program will request you to delete the W2 in the diagnostics.  But a zero in box 1 means there is no taxable income for Federal purposes.

I also would suggest to make sure you are not double-entering a second copy of a W2 from a company you are working for.  Otherwise, I would suggest that the safest thing to do is enter the information and let the program take care of the rest.
