I live in Puerto Rico. How do I fill out the W2 section ? I have to claim social security refund?

If you have a Form W-2 showing Box 16 wages earned in Puerto Rico in (displayed as “PR” in Box 15), please note that TurboTax does not support state tax returns from Puerto Rico. You can still file your federal tax return; however, you would need to file the Puerto Rico state return directly with the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico

Please see the following IRS publication for more information on filing a return with the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico:  http://www.irs.gov/publications/p570/ch03.html.

 If you are inquiring about obtaining a refund of improperly withheld Social Security and Medicare taxes, you can request that your employer refund the withheld taxes to you.  If the company will not refund the withheld taxes to you, you can file a claim for refund with the Internal Revenue Service on Form 843, Claim for Refund and Request for Abatement.

For more information, see the folllowing IRS guide on Social Security Tax / Medicare Tax and Self-Employment:
