When I type in the CA SDI amount in Box 19, Box 20 on my W2 is missing. Should I type "CA SDI" in there?
I tried adding this amount to box 14 as suggested in a previous post, and at first it counts toward my deduction, but then it gets removed as I go further along the process. Whenever I re-do the steps, the amount never saves. I need this to add into my deduction, but it's not. Is this an issue?
just deal with box 14 ,amount and tax category on the same line.
you don't get any of that money back only the amount you enter in box 17.
