f you have received a W-2 for election /poll income, then you must report it as such.  

If you have not received the Form W2, then you should not have received more than $1,600 in compensation and the amount should be reported as Other Income.

Please follow the steps below to enter Poll/Election income:

1. Federal Taxes (Personal Tab for Home & Biz)

2. Wages & Income, Jump to Full List

3. Scroll down to Less Common Income

4. Select Miscellaneous Income

5. Select Other Reportable Income - enter Description (Poll or Election), enter the amount (see screenshot)

Note: If you have received more than $1600 and no W2 was issued, please contact the agency for which you worked.
