The IRS does not want a W-2 that does nothing and they do not even allow you to e-file a W-2 with nothing in box 1. 

But if there is anything in box 1 then it must be entered.

In Box 12, is there an amount listed after the code J?

Any wages shown in Box 1 Are taxable; Amounts in Box 12, code J are Not taxable, 'information only' ...
