My 414H is not included in my wages fro Federal and turbo tax won't accept  this.  How can I get it to accept this?
  • It's a non-taxable retirement contribution, so I need it to factor in. What's up Turbo Tax?
Your 414H is not included in Box 1 of your W-2.  When you do your NY tax return you have to add the 414H to your NY income.
  • regarding the answer to this question, does the additinal income get added into the box 1 amount?
  • Changing numbers on your W-2 is never a good idea.  This was a problem in last year's software and I can't believe that they didn't fix it for this year.  In my opinion thisis purely a software issue, not a tax code one.  TurboTax should change the error checking procedure nad eliminate this situation from generating an error.
  • is this fixed yet? i am in the middle of taxes and getting this error message. help TurboTax!
  • I've been using TurboTax for about 5 years, and it hasn't corrected the 414H issue. This is not a problem for federal taxes, but will not allow you to e-file for NY state. You'll have to print and sent it in by mail. This is due to the federal not taxing you on your retirement, but NY state does. You'll end up paying a penalty later in the year once it is reviewed. I've tried contacting TurboTax to have this corrected, but to no avail. It is also difficult to try to have them repay this fee when the IRS contacts you.

    I wish someone from TurboTax can get back to me on this issue. I love their software, but they are incredibly slow on correcting the issue. NY state taxes you on your retirement, so they should incorporate that fact. I don't advise changing Box 1 on your W-2 to reflect this short-sightedness, otherwise it will knock all your federal and other information out of whack!

    TurboTax! Can we get this resolved in time for next year???

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
