I have "PA LS" in box 14 on my W2. What is this?

It might be a "Local Services" tax for the state PA. But I am unsure on what to select in Turbo Tax to adequately categorize this.

More than likely it is a code for a local service from PA.  To workaround this, there is a selection for W-2 Box 14 in TurboTax that states "other mandatory state or local tax not on above list" or you can select the option of "other - not on the list."  As noted in the link below, TurboTax will determine if more information is needed to determine if the amount impacts your return or not. 

Here is more information on Box 14 of the W-2:

It is the Local Services Tax that many PA municipalities collect.  Max is $52 per person per year.
