THIS IS THE EMPLOYERS ID # ON MY W-2 [number removed] TURBO TAX WANTS 14 CHARACTERS WHAT DO I DO NOW?

    I suspect you are in Utah.

    On all forms that have any withholding or mineral payment, you will need to use the new 14-character Utah Employer State ID.  It is 11 numbers followed by 3 letters with no hyphens, and no spaces.  It would look like this:

    12345678901WTH   (for withholding)  or 12345678901WMP (for mineral payment)

    There is a website where you can look up the employer's new account number.  
    I just tested it, and I was able to get your employer's new number.

    http://tax.utah.gov/withholding

    Click where it says click for "PaymentExpress"
    On next screen choose "withholding"
    On next screen, do not freak out, you DO NOT have to fill out any of that form.  Just click on blue link "Find your new withholding account number"
    On next screen enter the old number, click the "Get..." and the new number will appear.

      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.
