I received w-2 form for third party sick pay. Should i enter this in as w-2 form and whatever listed on form?

There are no amounts listed in Box 1-7 but there is an amount in Box 12 and nothing for state is this correct?

    Yes, this sounds correct.  Enter the W-2 exactly as shown thru the regular W-2 module.

      • contacted the irs via telephone , stated the above to them , their reply was that if there were no income , then the w-2 would not have to be entered . now this is true only if YOU paid for the policy , NOT your employer !!!!!! if your employer paid the policy all monies received are taxable . i am going to verify this futher before e-filing .
            in box 12 , mine reads, the letter J (non taxable third party sick pay ) and then the amount .

      This is the same question that I have.  It is for my long term disability.  I received one check.  There are no amounts in 1-12 but in box 2 where they took out 100.00 from me for federal. They made me have state and federal taken out. Do we have to file this form.  It will NOT allow me to e-file?????
      • Everything I'm reading about "J" is that it is non-taxable sick pay.  Non-taxable means non-taxable.  I've entered the forms every year but it keeps me from e-filing.  I think I'll skip it this time.  Maybe there will be a definitive answer by the time I'm done.
      • have third party w2 box1 fed and state have with holding amounts box 12a coded J non taxable sick pay. I entered this w2 but at e file said I couldnt because of this W2. Am I doing something incorrect? Please help

      You will not be able to e-file with a W- that only has those fields filled in.
      • Why is that since TurboTax allowed me to e-file last year and I had the same situation?? I don't understand what has changed.
      • I have the same situation.  It let me e-file last year, but not this year due to this W-2 with third party sick pay.  Can I just enter $1 in box 1?

      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.
