where can i find box d on my w-2 form

  • I have the employer's ID number.  I cannot find box d
The control number (box d) is not required and is for the employers use if they choose to use it.  Some employers do not use it and it will not be on the W-2 form that they provide you at all.
I looks like it is required.  I tried to leave it blank and Turbo Tax wouldn't accept it.
  • Are you trying to download and import your W2?  Think you only need box d for that.
  • There is no box d on my w2 version i have here...what to do?
  • yes
Assuming that you mean the control number, it is between the employer's name and employee's name.  See attached snapshot of w2.  Arrow marks the spot
  • This is not true on all versions of the form.
There is no BOX d on the W2 form electronic version i'm trying to import to TURBO tax???

    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.
