    I have the same sort of issue.  I have two figures for my box 18 & 19 and two Locality Names (although they are similar), one for each line. Now I was laid off of work in late August, 2010 and was awarded a severance pay for my time with the company.  My first dollar figure in Box 18 matches my Box 1, Wages, Tips Box, so that's gotta be my total salary earned.  My second dollar figure in Box 18, from what I can figure, is how much I gained through the severance pay.  I don't know why the Locality names are different so if anyone has reasoning for that, that would be cool.

      It may be a local school tax you can enter in the local section after the state section of the turbo tax W-2 entry.

      If so the base earned income field should be the same as for the state.

      If it is still confusing ask your employer.

        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.
