What?  Your employer entered the amount that you see in Box 6--that is how much the employer withheld from your pay for Medicare.  You just enter the data from the boxes of  your W-2 exactly as it appears.  What are you trying to do?

 

What number in your W-2 do you think is higher?

Not sure what you are asking?   W2 box 6 is not for any additional amounts.  Box 6 for Medicare tax is a straight flat 1.45% of the amount in box 5.  No max.
