Are you getting an error message when you try to e-file by leaving the box blank? You should be able to leave it blank if your W-2 doesn't have one and e-file. Make sure you are not inputting anything into that box and then submit. 

**If you are still receiving an error message when left blank, comment with error message here. 

This is something new the IRS is testing out for 2018, so not all W-2’s will have one. Please see here IRS Expands W-2 Verification Code for Filing Season 2018 for more on verification codes on the IRS’s website. Per IRS: "Taxpayers without a verification code on their Form(s) W-2 may leave the verification code box blank in their tax software product."

What if the verification code box on my W-2 is empty?

I found another answer on this issue.  They said to delete the W2 entry and then re-enter it.  I did and it worked.  Weird.

Thanks for the update @jaimearroz and I'll be sure to pass this along.
