I want to file my taxes and am in a 401K at work but my W2 does not have Box 13 checked, can I still file?

Is it legal to file my taxes without an X in Box 13 when I am in a 401K plan

Yes, you can still file, but you should request a corrected W-2 from your employer.

The absence of an "x" in Box 13 could affect your decision to set up an IRA retirement account for 2017.
