Unemployment Tax Paid In

Make sure you have entered your federal and state tax withholdings (if any).  There is a small checkbox underneath where you enter total compensation for unemployment.  Check this box and then hit continue and the next screens will ask about the tax withholding.  Make sure your federal tax withholding is entered (it says box 4 but a lot of times unemployment forms don't specify box numbers).  See the screenshots attached.
